The School of Biosciences enjoys close teaching and research links with the School in the UK. Alongside innovative teaching, we are an internationally recognised leader in several fields including human nutrition, medical and pharmaceutical biotechnology, cropphysiology and management, postharves ttechnology, genomics and proteomics, and microbiology and molecular pathology. Our presence in Malaysia enables us to conduct major research projects into the uses of tropical plants and to develop solutions to some of the challenges facing the tropics, especially food and nutrition in security and human health.
Our portfolio of research is rapidly expanding into the use of underutilised plants for food and nutritional security, food quality and safety, the link between nutrition and health as well as anti-microbial resistance. Our academic staff come from around the world and bring with them a wealth of expertise. Their research informs our teaching, meaning that your learning will be up to date, relevant and applicable to the real world.
