Date:9/14/2012

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has linked up with the University of Warwick, United Kingdom, to launch a joint global programme for neuroscience research.

The universities both ranked among the top four in the world in 2012 QS Top 50 ranking of young universities under 50 years old have jointly funded two appointments to the new Warwick-NTU Neuroscience Research@Singapore programme and will hold their first annual symposium at Warwick today (September 13 -15).

Dr Ayumu Tashiro and Dr Albert Chen have been taken on as the first professors to the Warwick-NTU joint programme based at Biopolis. A joint PhD in neuroscience is also currently being developed by the two institutions.

In addition a small research team will be formed with a post-doctoral research fellow being assigned to each of the two new academics, and graduate studentships will be made available.

The two professors, who hold a joint-appointment with the two universities, will be teaching undergraduate and post graduate students at NTU. Students from Warwick are set to benefit from the programme through two-way visits and exchanges of materials.
