Congrats to Chou Loke Ming and Leo Tan on their forthcoming SNAS fellowship

We received some happy news that the Singapore National Academy of Science (SNAS) Fellowship will be conferred on 11 distinguished scientists this week.

” The SNAS Fellowships have been instituted to recognize outstanding individuals in Singapore who have distinguished themselves in the field of science.

A rigorous selection process involving reports from nominators, screening by a selection committee of the candidates’ Curriculum Vitae and publication lists, and review by the Council of the Singapore National Academy of Science, has led to the selection of 11 candidates for the SNAS Fellowships. “

Our hearty congratulations to all the SNAS Fellows and to the two from the Biological Sciences in particular:
