Metaboloic syndrome and related disorders is an important health concern and an emerging concept in this area, our group has high potential of attracting collaborations with public and private sectors. Currently, there is collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Imperial College London Diabetes Center, Abu Dhabi, UAEU- Al Ain as well as Universiti Sains Malaysia. Future efforts will be targeted to expand the collaboration and hence research opportunities with the industry as well as regional and international research institutions.
The group intends to publish at least 4-5 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals with impact factor, as well as 5-6 international conference presentations annually apart from supervision of undergraduate students in relevant fields. At least one student from the current postgraduate program in Molecular Medicine will be supervised.
