Migration Health Research Area/Expertise:
As an Assistant Professor at the National University of SIngapore (NUS), Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, Centre for Biomedical Ethics (CBmE), I am researching on medical repatration of migrant workers on work permits in Singapore from a medical professionalism perspective under a start-up funding from my university. I'm also co-directing CENTRES (Clinical Ethics Network and Research Ethics Support), a CBmE initiative funded by the Singapore Ministry of Health to coordinate training of ethics committees in Singapore, and we have worked on clinical ethics issues involving migrant workers. I am also part of the planning committee of a Global Forum on Bioethics in Research satellite meeting on the ethics of research with refugee and migrant populations, to be held in Thailand, Bangkok on November 30 to 1 Dec 2017. This meeting presents a valuable opportunity to meet with colleagues who work in this field and to inform the further development of our satellite meeting agenda.
