Translating research from the bench to the bedside is not without its challenges.
"The Department of Infectious Diseases in SGH and the EID programme at Duke-NUS have had a close working relationship for several years. Translating research from the bench to the bedside is not without its challenges. For example, we had to find ways to minimise the radiation exposure to our study participants with dengue fever who would be undergoing Position Emission Tomography (PET) imaging. However, we're not afraid to push the boundaries and come up with novel approaches to solve research questions. Most importantly, we have a common goal which is for our research to ultimately benefit patients in the long run."
