"There is now a common strategy and much better coordination of research within SingHealth than in the past.  There is also greater appreciation that research can lead to improvements in clinical care.  With research funding increasingly focused on areas that reflect national needs, we need to adapt accordingly and prioritise our areas of research.  At the same time, we need to ensure that individuals and groups who are not in the priority areas remain sufficiently engaged and supported."
