University of Illinois ARCS receives USD 10.9 million grant from Singapore NRF

Industry news

  • The University of Illinois Advanced Research Center at Singapore (ARCS), led by Professor Yong-Su Jin, received a five-year SGD 14.8 million (~USD 10.9 million) grant from Singapore's National Research Foundation (NRF). The grant will establish the Centre for Precision Fermentation and Sustainability (PreFerS).

  • The Center for PreFerS will focus on developing microbial cell engineering or precision fermentation, transforming readily accessible compounds like sugars into molecules, including alternative proteins, healthy fats, and vitamins. The Center for PreFerS expects to realize Singapore's goals of locally creating 30% of its nutritional requirements by 2030 and contributing toward global food sustainability.

  • The project team includes professors in various fields of study, including bioengineering, food science and human nutrition, chemical and biomolecular engineering, and civil and environmental engineering. Researchers comprise National University of Singapore affiliates and other local institutions.
