Dr. Swaine Chen is a Senior Research Scientist in Infectious Diseases at GIS and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the National University of Singapore. He has a broad background in medicine, biology, and chemistry. In his lab, he studies not only why some bacteria cause infections, but also tries to develop new methods so that we can diseases more quickly in the future. Another major aspect of his work is using DNA sequencing to detect and understand outbreaks of infectious diseases, especially those that are unexpected, like the Group B Streptococcus outbreak associated with yu sheng fish in 2015 in Singapore.

DNA and genomics will transform our lives
比网络时代更大的革命:DNA

Science is advancing at an incredibly fast rate – especially in the area of genomics. The same level of advancement in computing that took 50 years to achieve took place in the short span of 5 years in the realm of genomics. How will this technological revolution in genome sequencing transform our lives for the better?

越来越多的人转向心理和行为的层面来确保整个社会的欣欣向荣。然而蓬勃发展需要一个建立在生物学层面的基础。本场演讲将会通过向观众们展示证据进而讨论社会的蓬勃发展。正是由于此次讨论是基于确凿的证据,我们可以深入了解我们如何从个人、同伴和社群的角度给我们自己和自己的生活质量带来实质性的改变。
