Research is one of the fundamentals of our department. Our strategy is to develop focused areas of research based on the research questions founded on relevant clinical questions. Our academic and clinical staffs are involved in many research areas in ENT and related cell molecular biology. In addition, our research interests have extended into the identification of genetic predisposition and gene-environmental interaction on disease expression of allergic rhinitis, hearing disorders and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. During the last few years, there have been increasing intra-departmental and international collaborations in our department.
Our department has a research laboratory in the MD4 Level 2 which is managed by our Research Professor, Professor Wang De Yun. Prof Wang assists in corresponding research activities, collaborations and departmental research meetings in order to share research initiatives. Since 2000, 9 PhD and 6 MSc students have successfully graduated from our department. Currently, more than 10 research assistants and staff who are working on various research projects are in our department.
Our major research areas include 3 significant fields led by surgeons from the department and funded by various research grants from A*STAR, Biomedical Research Council (BMRC), National Medical Research Council (NMRC), Ministry of Education and Academic Research Funding of National University of Singapore, EDB Proof of Concept Grants, National Health Group (NHG), and etc.
