Duke-NUS Medical School
Duke-NUS, in collaboration with its Partner in Academic Medicine, SingHealth, and its parent universities Duke University and the National University of Singapore (NUS), has become an internationally recognized leader in biomedical education and research with findings that are translated into health solutions. Duke-NUS adopts a multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary approach, leveraging state-of-the-art technology platforms to open new horizons for research. The SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre (AMC) harnesses the collective strengths of Duke-NUS’ medical education and research capabilities, and SingHealth’s clinical expertise. Through this partnership, clinical care, education, and research are integrated, leading to improved healthcare and patient outcomes. Under the AMC umbrella, Duke-NUS-affiliated investigators undertake clinical research at hospitals, clinics and community-based sites across Singapore. Our faculty and researchers collaborate with academic and healthcare institutions, government organisations, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, both locally and internationally. Significant research discoveries have been made at Duke-NUS, and many of our researchers have been recognized with accolades and awards from across the globe. We place great emphasis on the continued professional and personal development of our entire research team.
The Vice Dean (VD), Office of Research (OOR) oversees the strategic planning, administration, and operations of the Office of Research, and is the liaison with other research entities in Singapore and at Duke University.

The OOR is supported by the departments of Research Operations, Sponsored Research, and Research Affairs (www.duke-nus.edu.sg/research/support-departments).
