Science has seen mankind’s quality of life improve by leaps and bounds since the bubonic plague plunged Europe into the Dark Ages. As much as scientific progress in vaccines has resolved historically deadly diseases such as polio and others, the continual emergence of new and old diseases emphasizes the importance of medical biotechnology to improve healthcare delivery.


Throughout history, we have benefitted from these amazing discoveries; from Edward Jenner who created the world’s first vaccination for small pox, to the use of contact lenses to non-invasively monitor blood glucose in diabetic patients, and up to today where scientists have created biotechnology software to identify human faces with DNA left behind at crime scenes as well as wearable tattoos to monitor our important body functions by sending the information directly to the smart phones of our doctors.


Medical biotechnology students at IMU will learn how to contribute towards developing beneficial products to prevent and treat human diseases, learn how to communicate your findings to the general public and eventually to market your own biotechnology products and set up your own companies.

As a Medical Biotechnology student, we are not only exposed to lab work but we are also focussed on community service. We went to Kampung Sebir located at Labu, Negeri Sembilan. Our main task is to collect the soil and water samples from different places around the village and analyse the types of microorganisms present in different samples. After that, we need to plan an effective ways to educate the local communities so that they are aware of the microbial threats, maintain their personal hygiene and lower the chances of getting sick easily.

The curriculum is solid and intensive, especially coming into the second year whereby more of the modules are becoming core biotechnology modules which are essential within our field of studies. We study topics ranging from microbiology, pathology, immunology, cancer biotechnology, and even bioprocess engineering, to strengthen our foundations especially for the coming years where we are going to be employed. Not only that, a unique component of our programme is the existence of the Graduate Employability, Adaptability and Reshaping (GEAR) programme – a collaborative effort between IMU and Bioeconomy Corporation that outlines a series of training workshop sessions for the students of Semesters 3 and 5, which cover communication skills, teamwork, and general business and entrepreneurial spirit.

The practical sessions in MB, IMU are very helpful. Again, due to our small class size, each and every one of us were able to participate in the experiments and get the most out of the practical sessions. By the end of the programme, I can say confidently that we all have acquired the fundamental laboratory skills, as well as some of the more specialised ones, such as cell and tissue culture, pathology etc.
