Worldwide, people are setting up or expanding into new careers, universities, institutes, and centers. This situation is particularly good for Singapore. From a biomedical perspective, three main movements may be observed: (1) pharmaceutical, biotechnological and supply companies establishing local-based subsidiaries, (2) renowned universities and colleges establishing biomedical and chemical biology institutes, and (3) researchers of international standing taking the lead to bring-in, train and sustain a first-class local workforce. By discussing the integrative nature of chemistry and biology, we shall attempt to address both local and international perspectives.We shall give an overview of the funding structure and collaborative opportunities in Singapore. As a theme, we have focused on drug discovery. For relevant complimentary information, please also refer to the Singapore special in BTJ’s November 2007 issue.
