Conferment of Four Distinguished and Faculty Professorships in Ophthalmology

We are pleased to announce the conferment of four Distinguished and Faculty Professorships, which are part of the SingHealth Duke-NUS Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences Academic Clinical Programme (EYE ACP), on:

These new Distinguished and Faculty Professorships aim to spearhead EYE ACP’s efforts in leading innovative research and developing world-leading eye-care delivery methods for our patients. The Professorships will augment the ACP’s strengths in research to find affordable solutions that will benefit patients and foster greater collaboration and co-development with the private sector to accelerate the translation of novel clinical applications from laboratory to patient care. The Professorships will also allow the recipients to advance and strengthen collaborations with international leaders in Ophthalmology and bring about advancements in the delivery of eye care.

Professors Jodhbir Mehta, Chee Soon Phaik, Saw Seang Mei and Associate Professor Audrey Chia have contributed significantly to their respective areas in Ophthalmology and their appointments are testament to the outstanding academic leadership they have demonstrated with their pioneering research. The Professorships will enable them to accelerate discoveries in their areas of research and nurture future leaders in Ophthalmology through mentorship and education and in doing so, transform eye care in Singapore.
