Dr. Juliana Chan is a Singaporean biomedical scientist. She is an inventor for four US patents, and her research on drug delivery and nanomedicine has been featured by the BBC and MIT Technology Review.

Juliana is no stranger to the courage and fear that it takes to make a career change. She pursued a degree in biology at the University of Cambridge 20 years ago before becoming a full-time research scientist and later an Assistant Professor at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore. Driven by her passion for science communication, Juliana decided to leave academia to start a company that provided such services to companies and universities across Asia. She founded Wildtype Media Group, Asia's leading STEM-focused media company, which publishes the following magazine titles: Asian Scientist Magazine and Supercomputing Asia. This career change also allowed her to have more time with her two children.

In 2015, Juliana was named a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum. Using that platform, she strongly advocates for public scientific literacy, diversity and inclusion in science and technology, and growing the science communication industry in Asia. She is a professional keynote speaker and moderator, and in 2020, she was named an inaugural LinkedIn Top Voice for Singapore.

Juliana's advice for fellow women who are keen to pursue their passion is: "Make your career work for you, and not the other way round. The historical narrative of what career success looks like was certainly not written by a woman. To truly succeed on our own terms, we must first identify what our priorities are and then curate a career that best aligns with our priorities."
