Singapore, Apr 23, 2009 (JCN Newswire) - Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Hungarys National Office for Research and Technology (NKTH) awarded grants to four new research projects in cancer, bio-imaging for stem cell therapy, stroke rehabilitation and drug delivery at the 2nd Singapore-Hungary Joint Symposium held in Singapore today. These four research projects were selected from 23 applications made at the grant call following the first joint symposium held in Hungary in March 2008 to explore research in drug discovery and biomaterials. The projects, which would be jointly led by Singapore and Hungary researchers, were carefully selected by an A*STAR-NKTH Joint Review Panel after they were reviewed by international experts for their scientific merit, and assessed them for their relevance to the needs in the two countries.
