Tan Kim Ping Academic Fund

The RAD Race


Quote   In 1997, our patient Ms Tan Soi Noi had a brain artery aneurysm that bled, and underwent a cutting-edge Radiology-guided minimally-invasive coil embolisation, thus saving her from an open brain surgery. 
In 2014, her brain aneurysm recurred and the pressure on her nerves caused blurred vision. Our radiologist treated her and preserved her vision.


When a person is injured or suffers from a medical condition, the number one priority is to provide immediate and proper medical treatment, so that they can recover and return to work or their daily routine as quickly as possible.

Radiology and the Radiological Sciences cover a patient’s full life span and support all medical specialties to determine the correct diagnoses and monitor patients’ responses to treatment.

The Radiological Sciences Academic Clinical Programme (RADSC ACP) in the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre brings together the fields of Diagnostic Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Interventional Radiology to advance the way we see, understand and treat the human body.

Dr Tan Kim Ping


This year, the RADSC ACP is establishing the Tan Kim Ping Academic Fund to honour Dr Tan Kim Ping’s vision, dedication and leadership in shaping the Radiological Sciences in Singapore.

During Dr Tan’s illustrious medical career, which included headship at the Department of Diagnostic Radiology in SGH from 1991 to 2002, he mentored numerous radiologists, and many of them currently hold leadership positions in the various healthcare institutions. He also laid the foundation of a strong academic Radiology service by encouraging and facilitating research and education among Radiologists.

The Fund aims to provide world-class patient care, train the best and brightest radiologists to serve future generations, and to discover new imaging technologies and procedures to improve patient outcomes.




Mr Lim Nghee Huat, an SG50 ultramarathon runner, is adopting the Tan Kim Ping Academic Fund as his charitable cause to support through his ultramarathon effort this year. He will be running the Ultra Great Britain from 18 to 22 August 2018, covering 345 km across Scotland.


To cheer Mr Lim on from Singapore, over 500 SingHealth and Duke-NUS staff and family members will gather for The RAD Race, a non-competitive 3.45km run in tribute, halfway around the world. The RAD Race is a part of the RAD FUNdraising 2018, and will be happening on Sunday, 19 August 2018, at Punggol Waterway Park, in tandem with Mr Lim’s ultramarathon.

We would be most grateful if you could support our cause by making a donation. Net proceeds raised from The RAD FUNdraising 2018 will go towards the Tan Kim Ping Academic Fund under the SingHealth Duke-NUS RADSC ACP to support the research and education initiatives by the Radiological Sciences faculty.

Join Mr Lim in supporting the Tan Kim Ping Academic Fund to facilitate research and education in the Radiological Sciences!
