In order to transform Malaysia into a country capable of advanced healthcare research and innovation, we will need to have experts with knowledge in both research and clinical/medical fields. Frontline medical doctors, nurses and laboratory personnel do not possess the knowledge in conducting advanced biomedical/biotechnological research. On the other hand, biotechnologists and scientists do not prioritise the needs of frontline medical personnel and thus, they do not fully understand what innovation/products are needed. The Master of Science in Molecular Medicine (MMM) programme is designed and introduced by IMU to fill in this gap.
