Getting From Polymer Design to Eye Implants – Solving Practical Problems Using Basic Research

How can basic research be planned to have an end goal application in mind?
Known as use-inspired basic research, this mode of research aims to discover fundamental knowledge with known potential applications.

From a practical perspective, stakeholders in the research ecosystem have several challenges to implement a use-inspired basic research strategy, such as:

– Why use-inspired basic research and how does it differ from the convention basic and applied research?
– What are the talents needed for a successful use-inspired basic research enterprise?
– How to identify use-inspired basic research opportunities?
– How to measure the success of use-inspired basic research?

Join our webinar with Professor Xian Jun Loh, Executive Director from the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), A*STAR to learn the practical experiences of performing and supporting use-inspired basic research, involving a personal journey from material discovery to biomedical applications.
