Singapore has invested heavily in science in the last decade and has attracted scientists from around the globe to its biomedical research enterprise. The Lion City's science funding includes more than US$20 million for stem cell research, and scientists there face fewer hurdles to working with stem cell lines than those in some other nations1. In 2008, developmental stem cell biologists Davor Solter and his wife Barbara Knowles moved to steamy Singapore to join the Institute of Medical Biology housed in the new Biopolis complex. Reporter Amber Dance visited him in his new labs.
