Programme : Cancer Diagnostics and Therapeutics
Programme Leader : Prof. Dr. Suhaila Mohamed
The cancer diagnostics and therapeutics program facilitates the development and validation of these approaches for applications in cancer.
The program includes a wide range of research activities from:
1) The development of functional foods for cancer prevention, development of new and economical cancer
diagnostic kits and tools for early cancer detection.
2) Involves the development of anticancer agents from the Malaysian biodiversity involving preclinical
development to the development of immunotherapeutics and the application of stem cells for cancer
As a common thread in the translational genomics program, the discovery of novel diagnostics and therapeutics would reduce the dependence on many unsuccessful Western therapeutic regiments and supports the initiative towards local health-care economic sustainability.
