Health and Social Sciences
Welcome to the Centre of Health Sciences Research and Innovation (CHeSRI).
The CHeSRI is set up within the Health and Social Sciences Cluster in 2017, as a strategic initiative to consolidate all health and social sciences research activities within the University. Since 2011, the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) has been offering health sciences programmes, particularly nursing and allied health.
SIT became the 5th autonomous public university in 2014. In 2016, the new university launched the pre-registration allied health programmes of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, diagnostic radiography and radiation therapy. The university has grown its health and social sciences faculty strength, from fewer than three to today’s more than 40 members whose expertise includes various allied health specialties and basic sciences. One of our strategic directions is to develop a coherent applied research agenda that aims to demonstrate clinical effectiveness of allied health and nursing services, improve patient care and promotes healthy living, including healthy ageing.
We invite scholars and researchers who have interest in health sciences to collaborate with us in applied research. There is also opportunity to work with students in their Honours research projects. In these pages you will also see the resources available at our University to support applied research. We hope you find our website helpful.
