Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) is a new joint medical school by Imperial College London and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. It was established in September 2010 and will operate from two campuses – Yunnan Campus at Nanyang Technological University and a new campus to be built at Novena. Its primary healthcare partner is the National Healthcare Group (NHG) which comprises an integrated network of primary healthcare polyclinics, acute care hospitals such as Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and national specialty centres. Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine will deliver a new five-year undergraduate medical programme resulting in a joint degree (MBBS) awarded by Imperial College London and Nanyang Technological University. The first cohort of 50 students has started in August 2013.

The Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) was launched in 1985 to develop and support biomedical R&D capabilities in Singapore. Its original vision was to foster a vibrant research culture to enable cutting edge discoveries and nurture high-quality talent. Today, IMCB has established itself as a premier molecular & cell biology institute, addressing the mechanistic basis of human diseases. IMCB Discovery research includes Cell Biology in Health and Disease; Animal Models of Development & Disease; Cancer & Stem Cell Genetics & Genomics; and Structural Biology & Drug Discovery.
