- NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine graduate Aiswarya Panda is moved by two passions: her calling as a doctor and her love for the ancient Indian classical dance, Odissi.

Both pursuits demand a balance of heart and technical skill. As an Odissi dancer, she combines rhythmic footwork, intricate hand gestures, and captivating expressions to convey emotions, moods, and inner feelings. As a doctor, she strives to master her craft, emphasising that it is "equally important to master the art of communication and care to be a doctor who not only fights the disease but truly heals the patient."

STEER trip to Chongqing and Chengdu takes students on a journey exploring a future in renewable energy 12/07/2024

How do fast-growing and sprawling cities go about transitioning to renewable sources for their energy needs? A group of 54 NUS students approached this key question and more during a two-week journey under the Study Trips for Engagement and EnRichment (STEER) programme to Chongqing and Chengdu in June 2024, co-organised by NUS Global and NUS Research Institute in Chongqing (NUSRI-CQ).

Through classroom learning session, industry visits, and immersion in the rich local heritage and cultural icons, the students gained greater insights into the socio-cultural-economic context of renewable energy, and how these cities strike a balance between technological progress, sustainability, and cultural preservation.

STEER trip to Chongqing and Chengdu takes students on a journey exploring a future in renewable energy Singapore’s existence can seem like a paradox in the energy sector; the country has almost zero natural resources, yet it is able to import enough energy to meet its population’s ever-growing energy demands. While some may know that the bulk of our energy needs is fuelled by liquified natural ga...

One big step closer to fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming a lawyer for Yan Jun Yi, who graduates with a Bachelor of Laws (First Class Honours) today.

Knowing the value of hands on and practical experience in a field like law, Jun Yi took almost every opportunity that came his way to participate in activities that allowed him to learn from practicing lawyers and gave him a better idea of what it takes to be a good and effective legal counsel. “With how much time is spent in classes and studying the law, it is easy to lose sight of the wide, interesting world beyond the law. Volunteering outside school gave me a broader perspective on how I could contribute more meaningfully,” he said.

Jun Yi credits the support from his parents, his mentors and the financial aid he’s received in his academic pursuits, but we also know that without self-belief and determination, he would not be where he is today. Congratulations to Jun Yi and the NUS Law Class of 2024!

Like mother, like daughter: How caterpillars pass down food preferences to their offspring 04/07/2024

What does the very hungry caterpillar like to eat? According to researchers from the Biological Sciences under the National University of Singapore, Faculty of Science, a caterpillar’s diet preferences, though unique to each species, can change according to certain factors, or substances, in its blood.

This new discovery suggests a possible mechanism that could help caterpillars switch their food preferences over the course of evolution.

Like mother, like daughter: How caterpillars pass down food preferences to their offspring Many caterpillars are known for their specific food preferences, which they bring with them when they morph into butterflies. For instance, the monarch butterfly only feeds on milkweed plants, while the Lime butterfly feeds on lime leaves. Despite deriving from a common ancestral species, these uniq...

X marks the spot!

For Dentistry students, learning to acquire X-ray images inside a patient’s mouth is a complex procedure that requires technical precision in the positioning of X-ray holders with film behind the teeth to avoid imaging errors.

NUS Faculty of Dentistry Senior Lecturer Dr Lim Li Zhen and the Keio-NUS Cute Center created the iRadiate3D simulator to make learning this method of X-ray imaging easier. Using AR, it provides students with immediate visualisation to better understand the X-ray film’s physical placement in the mouth and the resulting image. Funded by the Learning Innovation Fund-Technology (LIFT) Grant from NUS, this 3D tool lets students practice theoretical concepts on a physical model without needing an actual X-ray room.

A marriage of analysis and abstract concepts to enrich the learning experience 26/06/2024

It’s okay to focus on your feelings and thoughts in class – in fact, it’s encouraged in these NUS College courses!

Among the innovative courses offered at NUSC are three that teach analytical skills through the lens of abstract but relatable concepts like personal identity and emotions. The learning approach prompts students to mine their own experiences for insights and apply their newly acquired skills to a broader range of questions beyond the purely scientific.

A marriage of analysis and abstract concepts to enrich the learning experience Keeping students engaged in a class when teaching technical subjects or abstract concept can be a challenge for educators. The right framework, however, can transform the learning experience from one of boredom to an ‘eureka’ moment that opens students' eyes to new possibilities.At NUS College (...

S’pore baby with 1 in 100 million brain stem tumour survives and thrives against all odds 24/06/2024

"The NUH doctors did not want to commit to anything, but also did not give E a death sentence. We knew the risk (that she could die) but biopsy was the only recourse. I was assured (by the knowledge) that if anyone had the experience, it had to be that circle of doctors.” - Mr Lee, Father of Little E

Heartened to read how lovely two-year-old Singapore miracle toddler, little E, overcame the odds to survive! She is possibly the world’s first child to survive an aggressive congenital cancer in her brain stem. Glad that she is coping very well, “bright-eyed and cheery, going to childcare, and fighting with her older sister over toys.” The multi-disciplinary team of doctors who treated little E included NUS Alumni Dr Vincent Nga and Dr Balamurugan Vellayappan, both assistant professors at NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine. So inspired by little E and her parents for their resilience, and grateful to Dr Nga, Dr Vellayappan, and all the medical professionals for their perseverance in fighting on for Little E!
