Editor's Corner

By Nicole Lim
The LKCMedicine Editor

At LKCMedicine, the new year started with a bang. We’ve already had a visit from the Singapore President Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam, who was Guest-of-Honour at the Foundation Stone Laying Ceremony for our upcoming new buildings.

We were also thrilled by Professor Roger Kneebone, Associate Professor Fernando Bello and their team from Imperial College London, who brought a ‘live’ surgery to some 400 aspiring medical students – without them having to step into a hospital! And we just launched our own Medical Education Research and Scholarship Unit (MERSU).

Also in this issue, get to know two of our students and our new LKCMedicine Postdoctoral Fellows; find out how our skin researchers hope to improve patient care and catch up with all the latest news from the School!
