On March 14, 2018, the Precision Nutrition D-Lab (D-Lab) was launched to strengthen the research centre’s capabilities in providing novel, scientifically substantiated integrated nutritional solutions. “The D-Lab works at the crossroads of nutrition science and digital technologies and aims to be a leading centre on digital health solutions in early life”, adds Dr Martin. The D-Lab is run by over 35 professional researchers and equipped with digital-enabled data collection tools and data analytics to strengthen its position in pioneering research and innovation in early life nutrition. By adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, the centre is able to develop nutritional products and services that address the specific needs of the target population.
“To fully achieve this, we need to continue strengthening our capability by attracting and growing talents such as digital health experts, data scientists and professional researchers who are passionate about discovering insights about health and to inspire the development of tailored nutritional solutions that have a positive impact on health in early life”, mentions Dr Martin. Fortunately, in Singapore, the company is in the right place. Singapore’s plan to become the world’s first Smart Nation, its world-class universities that are leading on AI research, the city-state’s strategic location and the vibrant start-up ecosystem make Singapore the ideal location to develop, prototype and pilot the company’s digital nutrition solutions.
