From the Chairman’s Desk
I am honored to have a dedicated team to oversee the successful publication of this Directory of Academics for the School of Biosciences and Biotechnology, Faculty of Science and Technology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). This represents a compilation of faculty members with their respective expertise and areas of research, which we hope would serve to promote the expertise and research conducted within the School. While it is not possible to completely represent the depth and breath of research conducted by our fellow academics, this Directory does illustrate the core areas and focal point of expertise in the School.
We envisage this document as a compendium of information that may be used by academics, industry and students alike, from Malaysia and worldwide to make educated and informed decisions on suitable collaborators, research commercialization potential, product potential, consultation, training and supervision. We hope that through this proactive initiative of the School, the overall agenda of UKM as a Research University may be enhanced further.
It is our sincere intention that this little book about us will contribute much to the translation of the philosophy of UKM for the betterment of society. Please do not hesitate to contact the School or any of the academics directly to initiate collaboration or for further information. We hope that this would lead to fruitful collaborations and a strong relationship with our stakeholders.
