  • National Tissue Repository :
  • reliable databases and strong data confidentiality.
  • National Disease Registary :
  • Set up by MOH in collaboration with healthcare institutions and research institutes in Singapore.
  • Database on cardiac, diabetes, myopia, cancer, renal etc. disease for healthcare planningand a platform for epidemiological studies of prevalent diseases in this region,
  • When fully operational, will integrate all registries creating new opportunities for scientific and clinical R&D.

  • BioMed Grid Test Beds:
  • Goal :To gain expertise and train manpower to meet future needs for biomedical R&D.
  • Linux Clusters in BII, NUS
  • Part of the new Consortium Called Gelato to push open source development on Linux clusters on the Grid environment.
  • (Gelato involves UIUC, Waterloo, BII, HP Labs, Tsing Hua, NSW…)
  • These nodes will serve as initial test beds for the BioMed Grid Project
