Research Facilities

The Centre's research laboratories occupy approximately 10,300 square metres, making up 11% of the total floor area in NCCS. Core research infrastructure includes a genetic microarray system, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, DNA sequencing, biohazard containment and washing and autoclaving facilities for wet labs. These facilities are also available to cancer researchers from other hospitals and institutions for collaborative purposes. Embedded in our Research Ecosystem are two key units: Technology Development & Commercialisation and Contracts & Compliance Management. These two units, together with the Research Administration & Operations, provide the core support for our researchers. 

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. Clinical drug trials are a major research component in our fight towards a cancer-free tomorrow. The Clinical Trials and Epidemiological Sciences division brings our research one step closer to our patients by offering alternative treatments.
