A morning of constructive discussion centred around the issues faced by Malaysian bioscience students in today’s day and age, potential collaboration between MBIOS, MOSTI and its affiliated industries to cultivate young talent to cater to the needs of STEM development in Malaysia, and plans to reach out to Malaysian students to better inform them of the bio-related opportunities available here.
A big thank you to MOSTI, Bioeconomy Academy, The National Institute of Biotechnology Malaysia, and The Malaysian Genome Institute for sending their executives to meet with this bunch of eager and enthusiastic students!
