Students’ research proposals should be aligned with one of LKCMedicine’s research themes - Metabolic Disorders, Infection and Immunity, Neuroscience and Mental Health, and Dermatology and Skin Biology. We invite prospective applicants to select a research project from the following list of offerings.

As the programme requires students to perform two laboratory rotations in Year 1, you may select two mini-projects from the following list. You will however only need to choose one of the two mini-projects as the thesis project after completing the rotations. Your research is to be conducted in the laboratories of NTU or Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine and/or other laboratories and organisations under special arrangements or agreements with NTU or LKCMedicine.
