Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research to set up its first Asian branch in Singapore
Date:11/5/2007

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed by the worlds largest international non-profit cancer research institute, the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR), to establish a branch for translational and clinical cancer research in Singapore. This is in collaboration with three Singapore institutions, namely, the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine of the National University of Singapore (NUS-YLLSoM) and the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School (Duke-NUS GMS).

The intent to establish the LICR in Singapore was announced in a speech by the city-states Minister for Health, Khaw Boon Wan, at the opening session of the American Association of Cancer Researchs (AACR) Centennial Conference held in Singapore.

LICR has 10 research branches across Australia, Europe, and North and South America. The Singapore venture would be its first in Asia.

Dr. Andrew J.G. Simpson, LICRs Scientific Director, said that the synergistic opportunities presented by Singapore were a perfect fit for LICR. The Ludwig Institute has great strength and experience in taking discoveries from investigator-initiated studies and exploring their potential clinical applications. In Singapore, the laboratory research is world-class, and there is an extraordinary clinical infrastructure ready to take the fruits of that research into clinical trials. Together, we can span the traditional divide between the laboratory and the clinic, hopefully to bring our research discoveries to human benefit. Dr. Simpson added that Singapore, with its multi-ethnic Asian population, is also advantageous for LICRs clinical studies, several of which are assessing potential treatments for cancers that particularly affect the Asian community.

LICR is well-known in the field of cancer research, producing articles of extremely high impact and conducted nearly 100 early-phase clinical trials for anti-cancer drugs, said Mr Li
