"My lab experience with the Immuno-Engineering Lab was welcomed with a generous amount of support. My FYP helped me clarify my career trajectory in pursuing a research-centric PhD career in NUS. The guidance I received contributed to me receiving offers from the NUS President’s Graduate Fellowship and the A*STAR Graduate Scholarship."

"During my time at the lab, I was exposed to different stages of academic research, which stimulated my critical thinking and scientific reasoning skills. Despite being an undergraduate, I have the opportunity to participate in two publications. My experience at the lab had significantly contributed to my employment at MSD (Merck & Co., Inc) through the Emerging Talent Rotation Programme."

"My project equipped me with research skills and academic knowledge, and introduced me to incredible opportunities. Prof Tay involved me to publish an article in Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News where I interviewed experts in the field of bioreactor engineering. He also got me a fellowship to attending a conference on cell and gene therapy. The experience I received is highly advantageous for my studies and future career."
