- SBIC was established in August 2004 to serve as a focal point for stimulating, funding, coordinating and reporting on the various bioimaging activities in Singapore. Under the chairmanship of Professor Philip Kuchel, SBIC hopes to harness existing imaging expertise and capabilities in Singapore and develop them into a focused national platform to support the growth of multi-disciplinary research activities and speed the development and translation of biomedical research discoveries into clinical applications.
Its four technology platforms of optical imaging, image processing and management, small animal imaging with magnetic resonance and development of chemical and biological probes are used to support research in cancer, metabolic medicine and regenerative medicine.
