The SingHealth Duke-NUS Cell Therapy Centre (SDCT) was launched in May 2021 to provide a cluster-wide focal point in coordinating cell, tissue and gene therapy (CTGT) research and education, as well as clinical trials and services.
This integrated and virtual centre brings together the strengths and expertise of healthcare professionals across various specialties in SingHealth institutions, to leverage on advanced CTGT technologies to improve diagnostics, therapeutics, research and healthcare outcomes by providing seamless, holistic and quality patient-centric care.
SDCT aims to be a global leader in delivering CTGT products and technologies, with a vision to make cellular immunotherapy available to Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region.
Besides enhancing patient care, SDCT also focuses on formulating and coordinating cluster-wide efforts in the research and development of novel CTGT products and associated technologies.
Additionally, the Centre organises educational programmes such as the monthly Cell Therapy Lecture Series, bimonthly External Speaker Seminar Series and annual Cell Therapy Conference to equip medical professionals with knowledge of the use of cellular therapies in clinical trials and services.
SDCT will be organising more educational programmes in the near future.
Below are some programmes that may be relevant to general practitioners (GPs):
