  Winner of the prestigious National Science Award (NSTA 2007)
 
 




Congratulations to Associate Professor Uttam Surana, Principal Investigator at IMCB, for winning the National Science Award (NSA) 2007! A/P Surana was awarded the prestigious award at the National Science and Technology Awards (NSTA) dinner held on 13 September 2007. A/P Surana was given the award "his outstanding contribution to the understanding of cellular circuits that are crucial in regulating cell division and maintaining genome stability"

A/P Surana's research focuses on using Saccharomyces cerevisiae to study cell cycle regulation. By examining the intricacies of cell division, one of the most fundamental activities of living cells that allow them to multiply, he uncovered novel schemes used to regulate cell division and to maintain chromosome stability in yeast cells. Using his understanding of cell cycle coordination, he designed genetic screens to identify compounds that could prevent division and induce cell death in cancer cells.

The NSA award recognises research scientists and engineers in Singapore who have made outstanding contributions in basic research leading to the discovery of new knowledge or the pioneering development of scientific or engineering techniques and methods.
