AN AWARD-WINNING Singaporean scientist has started what could be Asia’s first science magazine, which aims to showcase research done in this part of the world.
Dr Juliana Chan, 30, an assistant professor at Nanyang Technological University, has roped in other full-time scientists and doctors from around the world – from Singapore, the Philippines and India to the United States and Britain – to contribute to the quarterly magazine, Asian Scientist.
“From the very start, my goal has always been to publicise the excellent science coming from Asia, and there was no such magazine on the market focusing on the region.”
Dr Chan has won several awards such as the Singapore Youth Award last year for her work in nano-medicine and tissue engineering, and for founding and editing an online version of the magazine for the past two years. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
