Did anyone miss Dr. P's talk on the last day of Ento22? Here's the recording of livestream where she introduced the work being done by our students. Check it out!
.Congratulations to our resident beetle guy for successfully defending his PhD yesterday! Reprolab's first PhD student has graduated!! All the best in your new lab Dr. Yap.
First off, some words from the main parties involved:
Thanks to all who came for the post-defense celebration!
Yesterday, Reprolab went down to the Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC) to support NP and our collaborators during the joint BSF seminar hosted by SEC. Together with Professor Stephen Cairns, Adrian Fuhrmann (who is also our PhD student), Dr. Moritz Gold and Niraly Mangal, they introduced the audiences to the scope and themes covered in this collaboration. The turnout was great!
They also shared how Black Soldier Flies can be used in food waste management and sustainable food production in urban systems, to support Singapore's 30-by-30 aspiration (i.e., meeting 30% of nutritional requirements domestically by 2030). Here are some snapshots of the event:

A new semester has begun! If you're lucky, you might catch Dr. P in action at the following NUS modules: LSM2107 Evolutionary biology and LSM4259 Evolutionary genetics of reproduction.
Our graduate students Tyrone and Qihui will also be assisting her at LSM2107 Evolutionary biology. See you there, students!
Throwback to the time Reprolab took a break from doing science... to look for wildlife outdoors!
Dr. P doing the honours for the 1st group photo taken as we were heading off from Buona Vista mrt. Spot our newest PhD student, Adrian from ETH!
Reached the former railway line!
Last stop, Singapore Quarry! See everyone next time for our next lab outing.
Congratulations to Huiqing for receiving the Best Graduate Researcher award from DBS!
Her poster (pictured below) has been put up at at S16 Level 3, outside of LT31.
Last friday, ReproLab organised a lab field trip to Pasir Ris park! We were happy to introduce Dr Moritz Gold, our visitor from ETH Zürich, to our local flora and fauna. Also spot Shao Yang, our incoming Honours student, and Rebecca, our new research assistant, joining us for the first time!
We explored both the mangrove boardwalk and the beach.
Here are some of the interesting critters we spotted:
The trip ended with lab lunch and a birthday surprise for Tyrone (who is now our PhD student). Happy (belated) Birthday Tyrone, may your PhD journey be fulfilling and rewarding. Till next time!
Dr. P was interviewed by HerWorld magazine as a mini-series 'Call of The Wild' which features inspiring women who are championing wildlife conservation efforts in Singapore. Click below for the link to the original article where Dr. P talks about her journey in a STEM career.
At 2 long years, we were finally able to physically gather to celebrate someone's birthday! Happy Birthday Huiqing🎉🎉🎉! May you have many happy returns on your special day! Surprise successful 😎
Reprolab recently got featured on DBS's graduate corporate video! Click the link below to see our very own Master's student Hillary and Research Assistant Yong Jen in action within the insectary!
And here are the fun behind the scenes shots of the filming process!
