Professor Barry Halliwell - A radical reformist of NUS Research landscape
An interview

Professor Barry Halliwell is a man who constantly transforms the research landscape at the National University of Singapore where he is rightly placed in the University Hall as the Deputy President for Research & Technology and as the Tan Chin Tuan Centennial Professor of Biochemistry. He has garnered international attention for his work in the field of Free Radical Biology in the 90s and at the right time, was spotted on the radar of NUS which has always been eyeing for top international talents. NUS's decision was right as he has already helped drive the development of the Life Sciences/Translational Medicine initiatives at NUS over the past ten years and is now driving initiatives in ageing research. In fact, Prof Halliwell started his journey with free radicals research in 1970s and published a number of articles in internationally reputed journals. Recently, he was honoured with the "Lifetime Achievement Award" by the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine in the USA for overall sustained excellence in the field. His laboratory is also ranked number as 1 worldwide with the highest citation score in Free Radical Research. Despite his busy schedule, he readily accepted to meet us when approached him for this interview.
