Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues and friends,


Welcome to the 5th SingHealth Duke-NUS Scientific Congress taking place on the 21st and 22nd September 2018 at Academia. 

The myriad of research activities happening in healthcare in the last couple of years is tremendous. Building on the success of the 2016 Congress, we are excited to present the 2018 Congress with the theme "Academic Medicine: Translating Research into Clinical Practice". This theme brings a strong emphasis on the translation from research findings into the clinical setting to provide integrated care that truly matters to our patients. We have also invited researchers, educators and learners to contribute and help shape the Congress programme based on the theme. We are pleased to have received an overwhelming response for the proposal submissions on a wide range of scientific topics for the Congress. 

The Scientific Congress is a unique platform to share healthcare challenges and research findings on the latest medical developments and scientific advances in Academic Medicine with the aim to improve patient outcomes. This year, we are honoured to invite Professor Mary E Klotman, Dean of the Duke University School of Medicine, as the keynote speaker. Her rich expertise and innovative leadership in Infectious Diseases and Molecular Virology are inspirational and we believe her insights would provide exciting and fresh perspectives to build excellence in Academic Medicine. 

Our two-day programme is filled with an exciting lineup of plenary sessions and symposiums, which will cover a breadth and depth of medical care, innovation education, research and interprofessional collaboration. The diversity in disciplines will allow for a fresh look at age-old problems and translate new medical solutions into clinical practice. The key to any successful ‘science’ comes from the vibrancy in participation, sharing of diverse views and collaboration across expertise. It is thus our hope that the Congress will stimulate discussions and the cross-fertilisation of ideas. 

The Congress brings together the community of best minds in medicine and new ideas into the clinical setting. Whether you are a clinician, researcher or educator, the Congress will challenge your thinking and inspire your passion for research to advance towards our goal of improving health outcomes. We hope that you can look forward to valuable networking opportunities with like-minded researchers and clinicians, gain new insights and inspiration. 

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we look forward to seeing you at Academia in Singapore as we advance tomorrow’s medicine!

Abstract Categories

The organising committee cordially invites all healthcare professionals, researchers and students* to submit abstracts for the following categories:

1. Basic Science & Translational Research


This includes research in the areas of science considered fundamental to the study and practice of medicine (e.g. anatomy, physiology, pathology, epidemiology, biochemistry, etc.), as well as translational research, which aims to facilitate the application of basic scientific discoveries in clinical and community settings.​



2. Clinical Research

Clinical Research – Senior (>35 years old as of 1 Jan 2018) (ie. Main author's birthday falls on or before 1 Jan 1982)

Clinical Research – Junior (≤ 35 years old as of 1 Jan 2018) (ie. Main author's birthday falls on or after 2 Jan 1982)

This includes research conducted with human subjects (or on material of human origin such as tissues, specimens and cognitive phenomena) for which an investigator (or a colleague) directly interacts with human subjects.


3. Education Research


This includes research that examines education and learning processes and the human attributes, interactions, organisations, and institutions that shape educational outcomes. It explains how learning takes place throughout a person's life and how formal and informal contexts of education affect all forms of learning. Education research embraces the full spectrum of rigorous methods appropriate to the questions being asked and also drives the development of new tools and methods.  


4. Health Services & Systems Research


This includes research that examines the organisation, financing, and delivery of public health services within communities and the impact of those services. It would include the ability to prioritise health challenges, select the best approaches to solve a problem, adapt them to local contexts and test these in real-world conditions, and deciding upon wider implementation decisions.​



​*Students affiliated with SingHealth institutions (e.g.medical students form Duke-NUS, NUS YLLSoM, LKCMedicine and nursing or allied health students from polytechnics) are enc​ouraged to submit abstract in any of the above categories.


The Committee will review all abstracts and determine if shortlisted abstracts are for oral presentation or poster judging.​





1. Best Oral Presentation and Poster Awards for each category


2. SingHealth Duke-NUS Young Scientist Award


3. Special awards for categories of Nursing, Allied Health Professional and Student
