Chwee Teck LimProvost's Chair Professor | Singapore, Singapore
Dr Lim is the Head of the Nano Biomechanics Lab which uses innovative biophysical techniques to investigate the
mechanics of biological structures and biomaterials at the nano and micrometer scale. The research group actively
collaborates with researchers both locally from the Faculties of Medicine, Science and Dentistry, and research institutes
as well as overseas including Duke University, Harvard University, Institut Pasteur, Monash University and MIT. The
areas of research includes: Cell and molecular mechanics approaches to studying malaria and cancer,
Mechanostranduction, and Nanobiomaterials.
Dr Lim is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Nanoscience as well as the Molecular and Cellular Biomechanics journal. He has more than 200 scientific publications in international journals and conference proceedings, 11 invited review articles, 4 international granted or pending patents and gave more than 80 invited lectures in international conferences and institutions. He has also won several best research paper and poster awards including an Outstanding Paper Award at the MRS Fall Meeting in Boston in 2004.
