Singapore: The Emerging Research Hub of Asia

Singapore is a young and vibrant cosmopolitan city. Centrally located in Asia, it is the crossroad between the west and east, both historically and culturally. The Singaporean government has envisioned the future of the country as the research and educational hub of Asia and has invested significantly in science, research, and innovations. As a result, Singapore now hosts a vibrant scientific community and a number of international research centers. The science awareness in Singapore reflects the large-scale movement on the Asian continent to reinvest in science and education. In particular, the emerging field of ‘quantum biology’ has attracted the attention of many talented scientists in Asia and is becoming a new area for such scientific investment there. Therefore, it is now most certainly the right time to engage and interact with the scientific community in Asia and Singapore most certainly the right place to start.
