Foundation stone has been laid by the President of Singapore, Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam, for two new Nanyang Technological University (NTU) buildings for its joint medical school with Imperial College London. The 7-storey Experimental Medicine Building will be completed by July, 2015. The 20-storey Clinical Sciences Building will open its doors to medical students in 2016. The two buildings form the dual campus of The Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine). The Experimental Medicine Building is located at NTU’s main campus while the Clinical Sciences Building is at its Novena campus.
Also unveiled today were the designs for the state-of-the-art future classrooms, world-class learner-centre and research facilities designed to facilitate the medical school’s innovative teaching pedagogy and integrated research strategy. President Tony Tan, who is also NTU’s Chancellor, graced the foundation stone laying ceremony as the Guest-of-Honour for the two new buildings today. Dr Tan said: “I am delighted to lay the foundation stone for the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine’s Experimental Medicine Building and Clinical Sciences Building. This promising young medical school builds on the strong foundations of the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Imperial College London. I look forward to seeing the School flourish and make its mark on the world stage through state-of-the-art training of doctors who put patient care first and push the boundaries of care through multidisciplinary research.”
