Singapore and Australia work together to fight infectious disease

A joint research grant has been awarded to five research teams involving Australian and Singaporean scientists to carry out research into preventing infectious diseases.

A total of 4.5 million Singaporean dollars (€2.8m) will be spent on research into tuberculosis, dengue fever and influenza, according to Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research.

“In working with our colleagues from Australia, we hope to demonstrate the capability that Singapore has in terms of using genomic technology to understand, to monitor and ultimately to develop further treatments and effective healthcare policies for any infectious disease,” said Teo Tik Ting, a professor at the National University of Singapore, who is participating in a research project funded by the grant.
