Date: 8-9 September 2015

Venue : University of Malaya

Theme: Interactions - integrating science and society " The concept of interactions extends from the minute molecular interactions to the inclusive applications of biotechnology to society. The seamless interactions of fundamental research to application developments that can impact society is a highlight of this years meeting and transcends the domains of basic and applied sciences. Each session will be thematic and include papers in molecular biology, biotechnology, bioeconomics and social impact reflecting the particular theme"

See you all at the meeting!

Dear Prof/Assoc Prof/Dr/Mr/Ms,

MSMBB is happy to announce the new dates for the Malaysian Society for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology MSMBB Annual Scientific Meeting. This year's meeting seeks to highlight the spectrum of research from fundamental to applied that drives the different domains in molecular biology & biotechnology.

The MSMBB annual scientific meeting is an ideal platform for networking for molecular biologists and biotechnologists in Malaysia. We particular encourage early career scientists and postgraduate students to interact in this broad themed meeting to take advantage of the common platforms in molecular biology and biotechnology to form new collaborations and partnerships. To this end we have kept our registration fees the same as last year and we hope this will facilitate more young scientists to participate.

The meeting will also showcase the latest in available molecular technologies, services and consumables from our industry partners. 

The ​meeting flyer​ can be accessed at​. Abstract submission deadline is now extended to 20th August 2015. We look forward to your abstracts and registration​. The Abstracts will be published in the Asia Pacific Journal for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology vol 4 2015. If you have any enquiries please do write to


Warm wishes,

​The MSMBB2015 Secretariat

Message from President

Dear MSMBB Members,

Welcome to a new year of MSMBB activities. As the incoming President, I would like to greet all of you at MSMBB events. The Executive Council and I count on each and every one of your participation in MSMBB activities. Please encourage your students and colleagues to do so as well. Also, if you have ideas for new activities, do let us know, or email me.

MSMBB would like to collaborate with activities organised by members` Universities/Departments, e.g., talks/seminars/quizzes, etc., to enhance member participation in a wide range of activities throughout the year. Please do let us know.

Also, encourage your friends and colleagues to become members of MSMBB. I would like MSMBB to have a wide active membership so that fresh ideas and avenues for research collaboration can be forged.

I urge all of you to take part in all of our activities. Coming up soon (8th – 9th September 2015) is our 22nd Annual Scientific Meeting. The theme for the Meeting is “Interactions: Integrating Science and Society”.

Oftentimes, researchers concentrate so much on pursuing ideas and research and getting results for publication in high impact journals and getting scientific recognition, that the community and society at large are forgotten. After all, most of life science research is carried out to benefit mankind and society. So the emphasis of this year`s Scientific Meeting is to integrate Science with Society; to take steps that benefits of scientific research reach Society, and also to listen to talks by people who have done just that and how they have made it possible. There will be a number of “big guns” in the field who will be speaking, so do attend the Meeting and present your work as well.

Please send in your abstracts and registration early. Also encourage your students and colleagues to do so.

Later in the calendar, we are also organising a postgraduate research awards seminar – this will showcase postgraduate research in oral and poster presentations, but the emphasis will be on oral presentations. We have organised these for a number of years, the last being in December 2014, in which participants came from a number of Asian countries.

Keep a look out for forthcoming activities, through email and also from our website.

Looking forward to seeing you in all MSMBB activities.
