Dr Bruno Reversade, a developmental biologist and the first A*STAR Investigatorship (A*I) recipient started his appointment as Principal Investigator at the Institute of Medical Biology (IMB) last month. He has published 14 papers in prestigious journals such as Cell and Nature Cell Biology, several of which are landmark discoveries explaining how embryonic twins can be seamlessly produced from a single fertilized egg. His current research suggests that the birth of natural human clones or identical twins could well be genetically triggered.

Launched by A*STAR and modelled after the prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigatorship award, A*I was initiated as a platform to support and promote the independent early career development of the next generation of world leaders in scientific research in biomedical sciences, physical sciences and engineering research.
