NTU is helping me discover new possibilities, new pathways.

I was looking for an institution that could help me discover new possibilities, new pathways.

Arthur C Clarke wrote…

'The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them, into the impossible.'

My research seeks to go beyond what we currently know. To understand how genes get expressed, what causes some to go down one pathway and become cancerous and what prevents others.

By understanding these pathways we can find the cures of tomorrow.

Tell us of a future you'd like to create and we'll give you the resources to make things happen.

I was looking for an institution that could help me discover new possibilities, new pathways.

A university with state of the art technology. A hardcore cancer research centre with equipment like the IncuCyte live cell-imaging processor and Mass spectrophotometer. I found it at the John van Geest cancer research centre, an interdisciplinary, biomedical research centre here at NTU.

I found a lot more too.

They invest in people. With initiatives like the Doctorial Plus programme and the global lounge. Here, I experienced the rich cultural diversity of NTU. 

Doing a PhD is a big decision. It’s a long-term commitment. But it is worth following your passion – follow it, dream it, live it.
