​This August marks a special occasion for us – the official opening of LKCMedicine – and we’re dedicating this issue to celebrating our young School’s pioneers, milestones and collective achievements.

We hear from our Executive Vice-Dean and Editorial Advisor Professor Lionel Lee about his journey with the School and his aspirations. Our Vice-Dean for Education Professor Naomi Low-Beer reflects on the curriculum which for the first time is being delivered across all five years, and the team in London shares the numbers behind the collaboration.

We get to know our latest recruit, Singapore Translational Research (STaR) Investigator Award winne Professor of Cardiovascular Epidemiology John Chambers, and find out how LKCMedicine ensures all its research is conducted in line with the highest standards of integrity. As always, we also have the latest news and happenings for you.

Happy reading!
