Vinod, a R&D Lab Director
In my daily work, I oversee key projects, processes and performance reports, data and analysis.
I negotiate contracts with consulting firms to perform research or other applicable studies or support.
I plan and formulate aspects of research and development proposals such as applications that can be utilized from findings, costs of project, and equipment and human resource requirements.
Innovation is in a scientist’s DNA. Vinod supervises a team of researchers specialised in health nutrition, skincare and infectious diseases. They focus on four main research fields:
- how to prevent diabetes, chronic diseases for people like Wendy in Singapore
- how to improve elderly’s health for people like Jason
- how to improve skincare analysis
- how to fight against infectious diseases
In his role as Lab Director, Vinod has to enhance his laboratory’s efficiency. To this end, he invested in 3D microscopes and automated instruments to perform rapid, reliable and safe in vitro diagnostics tests.
