  • 29 Jul 2016. We finally have a group photo of all the postdocs, existing PhD students and the 4 new PhD students joining NNL in Aug this year. This makes us the largest, and most complete team since the lab started 3.5 years ago. We had a good discussion during our group retreat on how we are going to tackle the grand problem of safe and effective targeting of nanomedicine for cancer. It is heartening to see that everyone has matured and are able to formulate the problem well. Really look forward to working with all of you to tackle this million dollar question together!

  • 14 May 2016. NNL scored big in the 10th Biomedical Engineering Society (BES) Scientific Meeting with 2 golds and 3 silvers in the postgraduate, undergraduate and high school categories! Congratulations to Yan Teck and Eugenia for winning the gold and silver award respectively for their oral presentation in the postgraduate category, as well as Miguel for winning the merit award for his oral presentation in the undergraduate category. Both our SRP students, Nicole won the best poster and Jingqi won the silver award for her oral presentation in the high school category. This is indeed a good testament that many of us are doing good quality research that are appreciated by others. Let's keep up the good work!

  • 11 May 2016. Our 4th batch of FYP students have successfully completed their research over the past two semesters and presented their poster.

  • 4 May 2016. We finally have our end of semester gathering to thank everyone for their hard work in the lab, especially the 6 FYPs: Ain, Joshua, Lynn, Malvin, Miguel and Thaddaeus, who have spent their time with NNL since their UROP days. This batch is really a special batch of FYP students for NNL where 5 of them came in as UROP students in Year 2, continued as FYP in Year 4 and will carry on to do their grad school together. I don't think any lab in NUS has this history before!
