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 part of our commitment to supporting aspiring healthcare professionals, IMU is offering an Entrance Bursary of RM7,000 to eligible students who fulfill the requirements for our Medical Biotechnology programme for the July and September 2023 intake.
This is a fantastic chance to pursue your passion for medical biotechnology while receiving financial assistance to jumpstart your educational journey.
Apply today to claim your RM7,000* Entrance Bursary and kickstart your rewarding career in medical biotechnology.
