Four outstanding research scientists and engineers including Professor Yue Wang from IMCB received the 2012 President’s Science and Technology Awards from President Tony Tan Keng Yam at the awards ceremony held at the Resorts World Sentosa Convention Centre on 30 October 2012.

Prof Wang was honoured for his achievements in “ground-breaking discoveries in the biology and virulence of Candida albicans, one of the major causes of serious hospital-acquired infections.”

The President’s Science and Technology Awards (PSTA) are the highest honours bestowed on exceptional research scientists and engineers in Singapore for their excellent achievements in science and technology. Now in its third year running, the President’s Science and Technology Awards are presented to recognise and celebrate outstanding and invaluable contributions by individuals or teams to the research and development landscape in Singapore.

The awards, formerly known as the National Science and Technology Awards since 1987, have been elevated to the status of the President’s awards to highlight and give due recognition to the important role research scientists and engineers play in Singapore.

The prestige of the President’s awards underpins Singapore’s efforts to raise the level of excellence in research and strengthen the growing community of scientific talent in Singapore.

The President’s Science and Technology Awards constitute three different awards, namely, the President’s Science and Technology Medal, the President’s Science Award and the President’s Technology Award. The winners of the respective awards have been carefully chosen through a rigorous process by a selection committee comprising key representatives from the government, industry, academia, defence and public research institutes.
