Beyond the confines of the classroom

Staying current on scientific trends

Beyond the biomedical science (DBS) and biotechnology (DBT) curriculum, scientific talks and seminars play a key role in keeping our DBS/ DBT students, as well as faculty members, abreast of scientific developments and trends, within Singapore and globally. The inclusion of these activities in the life of a typical DBS/ DBT student, provide insights into a typical research & development or clinical diagnostic laboratory world. Attended by both students and staff, the talks illuminate the significance, purpose and inter-relatedness of the life science modules in our rigorous curriculum. In addition, the talks provide a form of career guidance by showcasing the respective fields of science that our students might pursue in future.
