The Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) at NUS is a Research Centre for Excellence focused on advancing the field of mechanobiology through multidisciplinary research and education. The MBI Postdoc Committee works together with the Graduate Students Committee to form the Mechanobiology Institute’s Young Scientist Group (MBI YSG). Together we aim to empower fellow young scientists to make significant contributions in science, industry and the community. An integral part of MBI YSG is the organization of seminars and events that cater to young scientists’ needs–from technical workshops to career development opportunities. Our past events include student conferences, postdoc retreats and career talks from industry experts.
The NUS Medicine Office of Postdoctoral Affairs provides a formal framework to enhance the postdoctoral experience of NUS Medicine-affiliated postdoctoral fellows.
