Undergraduate Students

Korina Shalini

Korina is an undergraduate student majoring in Biomedical Engineering in the National University of Singapore (NUS). She is currently working on her final year project under the supervision of Dr. Toh Yi Chin and Geetika Sahni in the μTE lab. The focus of her project is to evaluate the effect of folic acid antagonists on a micro-patterned neural epithelial tissue to mode neural tube defects.
Korina has also completed her Industrial Attachment at the Institute of Materials, Research and Engineering (IMRE) at A*STAR where she explored the use of fluorinated polyelectrolyte to create an omniphobic surface.

 Ern Yu Kiat

Yu Kiat is currently an undergraduate student majoring in Biomedical Engineering in the National University of Singapore. He is currently working on improving microstencils for use in stem cell micropatterning for neural development studies, under the supervision of Dr. Toh Yi-Chin. Yu Kiat has been involved in design projects which developed a portable ECG device and a blind-friendly smart pillbox that syncs with a mobile app.

Lin Shiming

Shiming is an undergraduate student majoring in Biomedical Engineering at the National University of Singapore. He is currently working on his final year dissertation, which aims to study the influence of substrate topography on the maturation of pluripotent stem cell-derived endothelial cells (PSC-ECs) into arterial and venous subtypes.
Shiming has had previous research attachments at Prestige Bioresearch, where he was involved in the histology lab conducting animal tissue staining. He has also completed design projects which include the development of a flexible transoral endotracheal drill as well as a portable, continuous blood pressure monitoring device.
