The Centre's research laboratories occupy approximately 4,300 square metres, one-third of the total floor area of the NCCS. Core research infrastructure includes a genetic microarray system, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, DNA sequencing, animal holding rooms, biohazard containment and GMP facilities for the preparation of clinical-grade research materials. These facilities are also available to cancer researchers from other hospitals and institutions for collaboration purposes. Industrial partners are also encouraged to undertake collaborative research & development with NCCS.
As the focal point in the nation for cancer prevention and management, NCCS also develops and manages treatment-based registries of major cancers in Singapore. National epidemiological and clinical data are obtained to facilitate objective evaluation of treatment protocols and survival rates. These in-depth treatment-related databases will assess new therapeutic strategies for clinical outcomes and cost effectiveness.
