Great Minds Think Alike

June 30, 2017

​With genuine love for science and discussion, the Malaysian Bioscience Scholars - UK Chapter was founded in July 2017 with the aims to establish a platform for all science lovers to connect, experience, grow, develop and research.

Four young undergraduate students from University College London came to the idea that with this, young Malaysian scientists would be able to find familiarity and share personal interests to spark innovation.

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!

It is a pleasure to meet Audrey from CRM for the fruitful meeting.

We are grateful to learn that Clinical Research Malaysia is more than supportive of our mission to empower Malaysian bioscientists around the globe. After the meeting, CRM and MBIOS have decided to advocate for each other, collaborating to provide our members with more clinical research exposure and opportunities and creating an awareness of the clinical research done here in Malaysia.
