Thank you for visiting the homepage of the Centre for Bio-Diversity Research. The establishment of this centre is the amalgamation of 3 diverse but inter-related groups namely, Aquaculture & Aquatic Bio-Diversity, Natural Products and Plant Biotechnology. We hope that this portal will be the site of choice for students and researchers who wish to know more about our activities here in Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman.
The Centre intends to complement learning and teaching in the various faculties and will serve as a catalyst for education, training and commerce in the related areas. As such, the Centre will organize seminars, workshops and conferences from time to time and we encourage you to visit our site often for updates on events.
Our stated mission is to promote multi-disciplinary research, product development and training of personnel in priority areas to drive local industries towards sustainable utilization of natural resources. We intend to achieve this through organic growth of our research capabilities and also through smart partnerships with local and foreign collaborators in academia and also industry. To date, the majority of our members are principal investigators or collaborators in projects funded either by external agencies or internal UTAR Research Funds.
We hope you will take some time to browse through our website. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to know more about particular projects, explore collaborations, industry linkages or even just to chat about science.
