UMBI’s 4 Latest Publications for 2017

This is indeed a great start to the year 2017 in terms of publications from UMBI despite that challenging times with research funding becoming more competitive. UMBI is a Higher Institution Centre of Excellence under the Ministry of Higher Education, but it no more receives topdown funding (since 2012) and relies mostly on competitive grants applications. UMBI also believes in nurturing our own internal talent and collaboration with our key partners whether local or international. The following are the list of publications which are the result of hardwork from our research students and research fellows. Congratulations!
