Research

At Johns Hopkins Singapore, research is regarded as the key driving force behind our multidisciplinary, innovative and pioneering investigations that ultimately determines our success in providing world-renowned medical education and unsurpassed patient care to all of our patients.

It is through research that we are able to discover the risks and further understand the causes of cancer, especially those that are most prevalent in the Asia-Pacific region: liver cancer and nasopharyngeal cancer. Research has the ability to help us detect cancer earlier and develop less invasive therapies, which can provide our patients with cancer with a better quality of life during and after treatment.

Our investigators are also participating in a number of pharmaceutical studies to develop new drugs at the international level to help patients gain early access to new medication.

Our efforts in the field of cancer research are an ongoing process, and we will continue to keep you informed of our latest studies. We hope that the resources listed in the other sections will help you find the services you need in order to continue contributing to the growth of this field.
