On 3 August, LKCMedicine held a dual celebration to mark another milestone in the School’s development – the completion of the Experimental Medicine Building (EMB) – and the start of another academic year with a welcome reception for its third cohort of 90 students.

To mark the completion of the EMB, more than 200 LKCMedicine staff based at NTU’s Block N2 and the Research Techno Plaza and Year 3 and 2 students gathered for a symbolic walk to the EMB, led by LKCMedicine Dean Professor James Best.

The group crossed the finish line to the thunderous sound of Taiko drums played by MINDS Perform, a performing arts group from the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and cheers from their Novena and Biopolis-based colleagues and the newest student cohort.
