Two Ph.D. Scholarships in Alzheimer’s Disease Research

For more information on the Ph.D. program and application procedures visit LKC School of Medicine.


The project focuses on understanding how age-associated inflammatory changes contribute to neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease.

Employing in vivo imaging techniques such as two-photon fluorescent microscopy, PET, and MRI, in combination with cellular, molecular, biochemical, and behavioral approaches, inflammatory pathogenic mechanisms will be investigated in living animal models of aging and disease.

Two fully funded scholarship positions are available.


Open to domestic and international candidates.

Admission requirements:

  • Non-clinical applicants: At least upper second, preferably first-class honors degree in neurosciences or a relevant field.
  • TOEFL/IELTS required for international applicants, except those who are from English-medium institutions.
  • A valid GRE test score for applicants who are not graduates from autonomous universities in Singapore. Test dates must be within five years from the date of application.
