Date:11/4/2010

hool of Biological Sciences and A*STAR's Singapore Immunology Network (SIgN) is a win-win-win for NTU, for A*STAR and for the PhD students who will benefit from a large team of world-class immunologists and the best in infrastructure and training opportunities," said Professor Mark Featherstone, Interim Dean of NTU's College of Science.

Mr Lim Chuan Poh, Chairman of A*STAR, said, "This collaboration between SIgN and NTU represents one of the ways in which public sector institutes can come together in partnership to train top local and international talent in the sciences. I hope to see more of such partnerships in the future to build up the talent and infrastructure needed to position Singapore as a global R&D hub and Asia's Innovation Capital."

"SIgN has a mission to build up deep strengths in human immunology research for better translation of research findings into clinical applications to address unmet medical needs and improve healthcare. Part of this mission involves training excellent talent, and we are proud to be a partner in this programme to train top-quality PhD students. Working with NTU, we will be able to develop a pipeline of talent in immunology and help to grow this relatively new and promising field of research in Singapore," said Professor Paola Castagnoli, SIgN Scientific Director.

Selection of candidates will be carried out by the Programme Board consisting of NTU professors, SIgN members and senior principal investigators. Each student will undertake a research project under the guidance of a principal investigator from either SIgN or NTU. They will get opportunities to attend annual training workshops and international scientific conferences.
