ostgraduate research forms a major and expanding part of the IMU’s academic development. Working for a research degree gives students the opportunity to develop an in-depth knowledge of a discipline and to become familiar with current techniques and methodologies.
The Faculty has high teaching standards and attracts first-class teaching staff from Malaysia and abroad. It prides itself of the facilities and support it gives to students and on the calibre and dedication of its academic and clinical staff. The Faculty fosters a broad range of active research programmes in its campuses in Bukit Jalil and Seremban.
Much of its success in research and teaching results from the Faculty’s capacity to attract external research funds. The IMU faculty has strong national and international connections and is involved in collaborative projects with other leading medical research institutions. Many staff have made major international contributions in their respective fields and are very experienced in supervising postgraduate students.
Today, more than RM1 million internal funds have been allocated for research every year. Research activities have increased substantially, especially in externally-funded collaborative research projects. IMU was designated by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, Malaysia (MOSTI), as a private university that is allowed to apply directly for and receive research funds. Our researchers have received funding for collaborative research projects in nasopharyngeal carcinoma, colorectal carcinoma, breast cancer, infectious diseases and environmental health. Other external funding agencies of IMU are Ministry of Health, Ministry of Higher Education, MAKNA, Toray Foundation and many other private research institutions. In 2011, IMU received 21 externally sponsored projects amounting to RM1,465,465 and produced 212 publication of which 116 were in ISI journals with a total Imparct Factor (IF) of 274.029.
