The Singapore Population HEalth ImpRovement Centre (SPHERiC) was established in August 2017 as a centralised platform to promote multi-disciplinary research, innovative solutions and catalysing shifts towards enhancements in our healthcare system. Tapping on education expertise from Singapore's first and only
NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, SPHERiC aims to augment public health research capabilities through hosting training programmes and workshops by internal and external experts.
A leading centre for population health research, working towards a future in which every Singaporean enjoys good health and access to affordable, quality healthcare.
SPHERiC will conduct rigorous multi-disciplinary research, build capabilities and foster collaboration in population health with the goal of translating evidence into action.
Core Research Capabilities
The Centre will feature core capabilities that will serve as shared resources among researchers working with the Centre, and would aggregate and provide access to resources and services that are costly or scarce in Singapore, yet necessary for population health research.
SPHERiC Fellowship Programme
The SPHERiC Fellowship Programme aims to support the development of research talents in career and thought leadership in population health research. It is designed to provide funding opportunity and guidance for early career researchers and post-graduate students who require support for publication and/or conference travel, as well as resources/networks in population health research.
SPHERiC Seed Funding Grants
The SPHERiC seed funding grants under the National Medical Research Council (NMRC) Centre Grant aims to support the development of population health research capabilities in Singapore.
