In 2015, she and her team were awarded the National Medical Excellence Award, given by the Ministry of Health (MOH), for their work in reducing mortality in community-acquired pneumonia. Dr. Lim also served as a consultant with MOH for the Singapore National Asthma Program 2 and 3, from 2018-2022 to provide input on streamlining asthma-related health services.

She was also involved in medical education and was the undergraduate director for the Division of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, NUH (2015-2017).

Dr. Lim was appointed as Deputy Director of the NUS Immunology Translational Research Program from 2020-2022. Her research interests include asthma epidemiology, asthma disease mechanisms, airway immune-profiling, and pneumonia. She is continuing her research work as a visiting senior consultant at NUH and Adjunct Assistant Professor at NUS.
