We envision that Immunology and Transplant Peak in Singapore General Hospital will accelerate impactful research programs and transform the healthcare of Singaporeans.
Our 5-year vision:
The Immunology and Transplant (I&T) Peak has identified three main themes that are leveraged at the clinical strength in SGH - Autoimmunity, Severe Allergy and Transplantation.
Significant advances in Immunology have made possible the precise manipulation of the immune response in a wide variety of clinical conditions to achieve better patient clinical outcomes. Although spanning across diverse clinical specialties, common immunological themes (immune activation vs. immune suppression) and pathways allow synergistic collaboration in sharing resources and intellectual exchanges. The overall strategy in I&T Peak is to leverage on the clinical strengths at the Singapore General Hospital combined with research expertise and resources at SingHealth to bring the research programs from bench to bedside.
