Dr. Steven Tucker


MD (USA), FACP (USA), FAMS (Medical Oncology)

A practicing medical oncologist, Dr. Steven Tucker founded Tucker Medical in 2011.


Dr. Tucker trained in Internal Medicine, Hematology, Oncology, and Stem Cell Transplantation at the UCLA Center for Health Sciences.  While at UCLA he also studied molecular biology and joined the UCLA faculty as Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine in 1999. He is a Fellow of both the Singapore Academy of Medicine and the American College of Physicians and remains active in both clinical and basic medical science research.  In 2006, he moved to Singapore to develop a global oncology clinical trials program and has made Singapore his permanent home.


As a leader in precision health and medicine, as well as patient empowerment, Dr. Tucker advocates integrating data from diverse sources such as personal genomics, metabolic and functional assessments, advanced imaging, remote tracking, and even social media so patients can develop their own personalized health goals and plans.  Dr. Tucker believes that the majority of today’s burden of chronic problems including obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease can be reversed and prevented through a holistic understanding of the root causes of disease.


Dr. Tucker is interested in scaling the prevention of chronic diseases to the level of population health.  His work outside of Tucker Medical has focused on the creation of digital strategies and tools for the treatment and prevention of diabetes, obesity, and cancer. He is Chief Medical Officer at CXA Group, a technology startup bringing evidence-based wellness into the workplace to improve employee health and control healthcare costs.   He is also the Strategic Director for Oncology & Genomics at MetLife Asia, Chief Medical Advisor at the Lumen Lab Innovation Center, and was the founding Global Health Advisor at Singapore Telecommunications (Singtel). 


Dr. Tucker is passionate and optimistic about the future of health and was named a Health and Medical Futurist at the MIT-Singapore Alliance for Research and Technology where he teaches medical innovation and design thinking.  Dr. Tucker is also an alumnus of the Singularity University FutureMed program and the Global Health Advisor for the Singapore SU Chapter.

Jane’s passion for Singapore is palpable when you meet her. Vivacious and playfully irreverent, Jane’s an exceedingly knowledgeable advocate for the city-state she’s known intimately since childhood. She lived in Johore as a youngster and again as a teen — her dad was a radio engineer for the BBC — coming down to Singapore often for films at the Cathay and boat trips to nearby islands from Clifford Pier on Collyer Quay. As an adult, she’s lived in Singapore for close to two decades, spending years as a museum guide and getting to know the little red dot inside and out. For Jane, Singapore feels like home.
