    Prof Peter Pook Chuen Keat

    BSc (Hons) PhD

    Peter C K Pook is currently Vice-President & Executive Dean and Professor of Pharmacology at the Faculty of Medicine and Health, International Medical University (IMU) in Malaysia. He joined the IMU as Head of Pharmacy in January 2001 and was later appointed as Director of Pharmacy (2001-03) and as Acting Executive Dean (2001-03) of the Faculty of Medicine. In January 2004, he was appointed as Dean, School of Pharmacy and later as Dean, School of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (March 2005 until today). Prior to joining IMU, he held positions as Senior Lecturer (1994-95) and as Reader in Neuropharmacology (1995-98) in the School of Health Sciences, University of Sunderland, UK. He returned to Malaysia to take up the appointment as Professor of Pharmacology (1998-2000) in the Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, University Putra Malaysia. He was appointed Head of Pharmacology Unit (1999- 2000) and Deputy Dean (Medical Sciences & Research, January 2000-December 2000).

    He obtained his PhD (1988) for his research on “Ligand binding and electrophysiological studies of Excitatory Amino Acid (EAA) receptors in the rat central nervous system”, from the University of Bristol, UK. This project was funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) under the guidance of Professor J C Watkins FRS. After obtaining his PhD, he continued his work as a MRC – funded scientist with the EAA Research Group under the leadership of Professor Watkins in the Department of Pharmacology, University of Bristol (1988-93, as Research Associate; February 1993 - December 1993 as Research Fellow).

    In 1992, Peter as the only biologist in the EAA Research Group, together with Professor Watkins and his colleagues who are mainly medicinal chemists, developed a new range of phenyglycine (PG) analogues of glutamate which could be used as pharmacological tools to study the EAA Receptors. These novel glutamate analogues lead Peter and his colleagues to first describe a new range of glutamate receptors – the “metabotropic glutamate receptors”. These PG analogues of glutamate have paved the way for the development of other analogues which has led to the better understanding of the role of EAA receptors in a number of normal and abnormal brain functions including learning and memory, epilepsy and cerebral ischaemia. As a result of this work, he was given an award by the University of Bristol for "outstanding and significant contribution to research".

    Peter also has a strong interest in education and has a particular interest in designing outcomes based curriculum. To date, he has led several teams to successfully design over 10 undergraduate and postgraduate programmes for IMU. He has represented IMU as an auditor for the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) and currently he has been appointed by MQA as Chair of the D-SETARA 11 (Health Sciences). )
