NUS deep-learning AI system puts Singapore on global map of big data analytics

National University of Singapore

⎯ A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has put Singapore on the global map of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data analytics. Their open-source project, called Apache SINGA, “graduated” from the Apache Incubator on 16 October 2019 and is now Southeast Asia’s first Top-Level Project (TLP) under the Apache Software Foundation, the world’s largest open-source software community.

NUS engineers invent smartphone device that detects harmful algae in 15 minutes

National University of Singapore

A team of engineers from the National University of Singapore has developed a highly sensitive system that uses a smartphone to rapidly detect the presence of toxin-producing algae in water within 15 minutes. This technological breakthrough could play a big role in preventing the spread of harmful microorganisms in aquatic environments, which could threaten global public health and cause environmental problems.

NUS researchers use light emitted from nanoparticles to intricately control biological processes

National University of Singapore

Researchers from the National University of Singapore have developed a method to give more control to optogenetics, by using specially designed nanoparticles and nanoclusters (dubbed ‘superballs’). These nanoparticles and superballs can emit different colours of light when excited by lasers at different wavelengths. These different colours of light can then be used to trigger specific biological processes.

NUS scientist designs ‘express courier service’ for immune cells

National University of Singapore

Dr Andy Tay, a researcher with the National University of Singapore (NUS) who is currently doing his post-doctoral training at Stanford University, has successfully invented a novel transfection method to deliver DNA into immune cells with minimal stress on these cells. This new technique is expected to boost DNA-based cancer immunotherapy by significantly improving the process of generating high-quality genetically modified immune cells.

NUS researchers develop new drug that fights cancer with less renal toxicity

National University of Singapore

NUS researchers have developed a new anti-cancer drug that have less toxic effects to the kidneys. It works like a ‘magic bullet’ that is delivered directly to the mitochondria. Such targeted approach reduces the drug’s interactions with other tissues, minimising side effects and lower the risk of patients developing resistance to anti-cancer drugs.

NUS invention makes biopsies less invasive and more informative

National University of Singapore

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a novel technology that could sensitively and accurately detect and classify cancer cells, as well as determine the disease aggressiveness from the least invasive biopsies. With this new technology called STAMP (Sequence-Topology Assembly for Multiplexed Profiling), comprehensive disease information can be obtained faster
