STCC was set up in November 2019 under the RIE2020 funding as a nationally coordinated, virtual organisation to address the need for a cohesive and collaborative national level cancer Research & Translation platform.
The STCC joint platforms enables collaboration between basic, clinical and translational researchers to explore novel approaches, push promising lines of research and translation, and seed ideas for larger competitive translational grants.
Singapore Translational Cancer Consortium (STCC) has signed its first cross-border partnership with the Australian Victorian Cancer Biobank (VCB) to foster collaborations in translational oncology research. As part of the partnership agreement, STCC and VCB will share its oncology specimen databases, allowing researchers to access a wider array of tissue samples for cancer research. Both organisations will also share tissue banking best practices, and establish outreach programmes to advance clinical research collaborations between the two countries.

Biomedical research is overseen by numerous Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) in Singapore but there has been no research that examines how the research review process is perceived by the local research community nor is there any systematic data on perceptions regarding the review process or other research ethics processes and IRB characteristics.
This expert opinion review examines the key challenges to the clinical adoption of NGS-based diagnostics in Singapore, provides recommendations on impactful initiatives to improve adoption, and also offers practical guidance on specific cancer types in which NGS-based diagnostics are appropriate for use in Singapore.
We partner with key stakeholders and institutions to implement joint platforms that are functionally integrated and operational in support of the nation’s long term goals to achieve value-based healthcare and economic outcomes through deeper industry collaborations, patents and invention disclosures, start-ups and clinically validated diagnostics.
