The VIVA-NUS Centre for Translational Research in Acute Leukaemia (CenTRAL),a partnership between the School and VIVA Foundation for Children with Cancer (VIVA), was made possible through a $10 million contribution by donors and partners brought together by VIVA.

The new facility seeks to improve cure rates and quality of life for children with leukaemia through more accurate disease classification and prediction, and determination of treatment response. It will be led by Associate Professor Allen Yeoh and Professor Dario Campana, both from the Department of Paediatrics at NUS Medicine.
