Queen Mary establishes collaboration with A*STAR
Queen Mary University of London has cemented a partnership with Singapore through a new collaboration with its leading research agency, the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The Queen Mary-A*STAR partnership will develop joint research across medicine, health, science and engineering. This will include funding a number of PhD scholarships through A*STAR’s prestigious Research Attachment Programme (ARAP), where PhD students can develop their research in both the UK and Singapore. In the first instance, Queen Mary is committed to co-funding six students across several areas of medical research. The first PhD students are expected to join Queen Mary in 2019. They will then spend at least a year in Singapore from 2020.
