– Stem Cell Biology

Our research mainly focuses on cancer biology as well as biomarker discovery on various cancers including colorectal, bladder, cervical and breast cancer. We also have a strong childhood leukaemia study group looking at gene arrangements, multi-drug resistance pathways as well as minimal residual disease. We apply the various omic technologies including genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics.

We currently provide the leadership for the Malaysian Cohort project which aims to look at risk factors for various diseases as well as biomarker discovery for early detection of diseases including cancer.

We are also conducting research in gravitational biology and space science. We were involved in sending experiments to the International Space Station in 2006 and 2007 and are now planning for experiments for future missions with our international collaborators.
