Abstract: This essay tells a cultural and political history of biomedicine in Singapore. It takes as its starting point the 'Intelligent Island' discourse of the 1990s. It argues not for continuity but dissonance between the two projects, while embedding them in local as well as global cultural politics. Singapore's adaptation of biomedicine was more than an economic decision, and has had more than economic consequences. © SAGE Publications.
