In 2007, funding was approved to co-fund the development of two Investigational Medicine Units (IMUs). The Singapore Health Services (SingHealth) and National University Health System (NUHS) IMUs were then established and aimed to provide supporting infrastructure for clinician-investigators, such as dedicated space and beds for in-patient and outpatient research, computer hardware and software systems for data management and analysis, as well as manpower “infrastructure” such as clinical pharmacologists, specialised research nurses and biostatisticians. The IMUs focus on early phase trials (Phase 1 and 2a), preferably first-in-man type; and encourages collaborative efforts across different trial units, institutions, across clusters and outside Singapore to develop innovative though leadership and global competitiveness.
