The Ee Research Group is located in the Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Science at the National University of Singapore.  With a team of scientists and students from diverse countries and backgrounds ranging from pharmaceutical sciences to biotechnology to microbiology, we embrace a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach in our quest to unlock the potential of peptide- and polymer-based biomaterials for regenerative medicine and antimicrobial action. We regularly play host to and welcome international postgraduate students and pre-university students, who display the drive and passion for scientific discovery, to our lab for research internships and exchanges.
