Dear colleagues and
Welcome to the 4th
SingHealth Duke-NUS Scientific Congress taking place on the 23rd and
24th September 2016 at Academia.
the SingHealth Duke-NUS Scientific Congress has gained prominence over the
years with its objective to advance the scientific knowledge and practice of
clinical care, education and research of healthcare professionals.
With the theme “Today’s
Research and Education for Tomorrow’s Healthcare”, the organising committee has
put together an exciting scientific programme with more than 40
multidisciplinary plenary sessions and symposiums, catering to an
inter-professional audience. You can look forward to a line-up of highly esteemed
international and local speakers who will bring us insights on the latest
developments in clinical care, biomedical research and healthcare education.
This year, we have the
honour of inviting two internationally-acclaimed keynote speakers for the
Congress. Prof Victor Dzau, President of the National Academy of Medicine, will
enlighten us on strengthening national health systems and improving global
responsiveness to combat pandemics. Our second keynote speaker, Dr Edison Liu,
President and CEO of the Jackson Laboratory will discuss on innovative strategies
in an academic healthcare system.
We are also pleased
to have received more than 650 abstracts from Singapore and worldwide. These high-quality
submissions reflect a strong desire from healthcare professionals and students
to share their research interests at the Congress. There will be ample
opportunities for the participants to discuss, share and engage in stimulating
discussions at the various scientific sessions and presentations.
We look forward to
meet you and wish all an enriching and mind-stimulating experience at the
