NMRC Awards Ceremony and Research Symposium 2021

The NMRC Awards Ceremony and Research Symposium is an annual event organised by NMRC to recognise outstanding annually and this event encompasses the presentation of awards to outstanding clinician scientists, and showcase research achievements and breakthroughs. It also serves as a networking platform for the research community to interact and exchange views among themselves. The average attendance of the event in previous years has been around 400, including leaders from healthcare clusters and institutions, clinician scientists, researchers, industry partners and other stakeholders in the biomedical research areas.

For the event in 2021, the one-day programme was held on a virtual platform. We recognised the achievements of our clinicians and researchers and provided an opportunity for attendees to listen and interact with established local and overseas speakers.  Permanent Secretary (Health), Mr Chan Yeng Kit, was the Guest-of-Honour for the event. There were 6 theme-based concurrent tracks which revolved around MOH’s RIE2025 areas of priority of research and the national translational programmes.

This year’s virtual booths showcased some of the research enablers and activities in the healthcare clusters and public sector, including the Consortium for Clinical Research and Innovation (CRIS), the Science, Health and Policy-relevant Ethics in Singapore (SHAPES), National Healthcare Group (NHG) Office of Research Protection Programme (OHRPP), SingHealth Research Integrity, Compliance and Ethics (RICE), the National University Health System (NUHS) and SingHealth Investigational Medicine Units, College of Clinician Scientists, Singapore Biodesign, and the CoSTAR-HS, IMPACT and PULSES programmes.
