The Bia-Echo Asia Centre for Reproductive Longevity and Equality (ACRLE), established under the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS Medicine), was made possible through a gift from the Bia-Echo Foundation, founded by lawyer and entrepreneur, Nicole Shanahan. The Centre will collaborate with our partners and specialise in research for women’s reproductive health, ageing and digital medicine, and lead the conversation in women’s reproductive longevity and equality.
