Read on some of the unique positions in the featured departments under our Research division.

SingHealth Experimental Medicine Centre

The SingHealth Experimental Medicine Centre (SEMC) is a comprehensive animal-based research facilities licensed by Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) of Singapore. It is the first research facility in Singapore to be fully accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) International, which certifies the Centre’s commitment and adherence to the highest standards of humane care and use of research animals.

Nur Filzah Binte Mohamed Azwan, Veterinary Technician

During my polytechnic days, a volunteer stint at the Singapore Association for Laboratory Animal Science Conference sparked my interest in working in the research industry. I then did an internship in a research facility, which was an enriching and eye-opening experience. With that, I decided to join the SingHealth Experimental Medicine Centre to continue working in the research industry after graduating with my diploma in Veterinary Technology. My work as a veterinary technician involves animal husbandry and care of small animals. On a daily basis, I check the condition of the animals and in some cases, I provide treatment to the animals as instructed by the researchers or the veterinarians.


Health Services Research Centre

The Health Services Research Centre (HSRC) develops, coordinates and synergises health services research (HSR) capabilities in SingHealth to address healthcare operational and implementation issues. It also nurtures promising health services researchers and encourages cluster-wide and national dissemination and implementation of the HSR results to improve healthcare and care outcomes.

     

Dr Sean Lam, Senior Manager, HSRC

My work revolves around the use of quantitative modelling techniques to derive value out of data, which is then used to enhance patient care and health outcomes. I am a quantitative modeler at heart who lives and breathes quantitative models. I have a PhD in decision science and systems engineering and expertise in the development of data-driven scientific models and methodologies for the optimisation of real-world systems and processes. I am also a trained engineer and data scientist, and I’ve used my data science training in domains such as healthcare, engineering, transportation, port and national security areas, as well as policy planning and analysis for R&D in universities and research institutes. I have won multiple research and innovation awards and grants during the course of my career. But experience aside, it is the positive impact of my work on the lives of others that really matters to me. This is why I’ve dedicated my professional life to realizing the vision of empowering the public healthcare system with rigorous data-driven scientific approaches to improve patient care and health outcomes. A data science career in SingHealth HQ is an ideal platform to realise this vision.
