The National University of Singapore (NUS) Master of Science (MSc) in Applied Biomedicine (MSc-ABM) is offered by the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUSMed), Division of Graduate Studies.

The Master of Science in Applied Biomedicine(MSc-ABM), perhaps the first programme of its kind in Asia, has a critical role to play in light of the recent pandemic and future healthcare crises. The MSc-ABM equips students with skills to combat emerging infectious diseases, develop vaccines and immunotherapies, as well as design drugs. It aims to develop students in their critical and analytical thinking in the complex and evolving healthcare landscape; training them to be resourceful and adaptable independent learners and leaders in the biomedical workforce. The programme also aims to impart the following skill sets and knowledge to students:

  • In-depth and up-to-date specialist knowledge and technologies in biomedicine
  • Ability to apply biomedical knowledge to practice
  • Ability to formulate a hypothesis and design a scientifically sound project

Students in the programme can choose to generalise or pursue one of three specialisations:

  • Vaccinology and Immunotherapy
  • Infectious Diseases Management
  • Drug Discovery and Development

By arming students with the necessary skills and knowledge, the MSc-ABM will provide a steady supply of skilled professionals to the healthcare and biopharmaceutical industries in particular research institutes, ministries and hospitals where the disciplines of infectious diseases management, vaccine development/immunotherapy and drug discovery/development are critical.

Why this Programme?

  • Get more from an integrated Master’s Degree programme focused on biomedical topics critical to the post-pandemic scientific community.
  • Prepare to be an agile and enterprising healthcare talent with good management potential, through the programme's bio innovation and leadership courses.
  • Leverage on Singapore's lessons and successes in managing the COVID-19 pandemic, which add new and unique perspectives to the programme.
