Contracts and Compliance Management
Technology Development and Commercialisation 

About Us 
The Contracts and Compliance (C&C) team supports NCCS research efforts by reviewing, negotiating and performing administrative functions for research related agreements, including matters related to HBRA, PDPA and data governance through establishing appropriate processes and policies. 

C&C works in tandem with NCCS researchers and clinicians engaged in research activities with industrial and academic collaborators and ensures that all research agreements comply with NCCS and SingHealth policies, regulatory requirements, MOH policies, as well as applicable local and international laws. 

The Technology Development & Commercialisation (TD&C) office plays an integral role in facilitating the development of innovative solutions that can address unmet clinical needs and contribute to improved patient and healthcare outcomes. 

TD&C actively engages with NCCS clinicians and researchers to help create opportunities and facilitate meaningful collaborations with industry, academia, research, and government partners. Together with our partners, we strive to develop novel inventions and promising research outcomes towards the adoption and commercialisation of the developed solutions to create a social and economic impact in order to benefit patients around the world. 

Our Researchers 
NCCS researchers continuously produce world-class results that have received widespread international recognition. In addition to generating an impressive publication record and a growing reputation, the outcomes of our research include multiple commercially promising technologies which we are looking to bring to market, either via licensing to industry or via spin-offs. The TD&C office proactively pursues the translation of NCCS’s research into tangible products.
