Prof Teo appointed to Council of Scientists for International Human Frontier Science Program Organization

21 Nov 2018

The School is pleased to announce that Professor Teo Yik Ying, Dean, has been appointed to the Council of Scientists for the International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO).

The organisation runs the Human Frontier Science Program, a funding programme for frontier research in life sciences. With its offering of long- and short-term fellowships, cross-disciplinary fellowships, career development awards, programme grants and young investigator grants, the Human Frontier Science Program supports world-class scientific research using innovative and multidisciplinary approaches.

The Council of Scientists deliberates and decides on scientific matters related to the programme. Appointed by the Board of Trustees, one Council member is normally chosen from each of the member states and one from the non-G7 European Union nations. Prof Teo sits on the Council as a representative of Singapore, a member state of the HFSPO.

“The International Human Frontier Science Program Organization is amongst the leading international agencies promoting innovative and cutting edge research at the frontiers of the life sciences. While the organisation is governed by the Board of Trustees, the Board is advised by the Council of Scientists in its fulfilment of its scientific mission. It is thus a significant privilege and honour to be nominated as a member of the Council of Scientists. This appointment provides the opportunity to understand global funding decisions and direction settings, which will be beneficial and important for Singapore as we develop our future strategies in the life sciences,” said Prof Teo.
