You are invited to the upcoming Research Grand Rounds on "Maternal and Child Health Research in Singapore".
About the Event
The SingHealth Duke-NUS Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) serves as a centre of excellence to focus and lead healthcare research and implementation initiatives in maternal and child health. Taking a life-course approach, MCHRI aims to tackle population health challenges, implement evidence-based initiatives and cultivate a continually-learning ecosystem for researchers focusing on maternal and child health challenges. Join our speakers Dr Loy See Ling, Dr Saumya Jamuar and Dr Yeo Joo Guan as they share insights across various themes in maternal and child health research including metabolic health, genetics and immunology.
