As a member of IBC, I have been involved a 2 days workshop to initiate an comprehensive SOP for Biosafety Act (2007) implemented at UTM laboratories. The participants came from various faculties (Faculty of Science, almost 60% of participants) and ICA Pagoh (left photo). I hope that this initiative will strengthen the role of IBC at UTM and serve as adviser platform for any modern biotechnology research concerning GMO/LMO. The “Unlocking Potential” courses by Prof Rose Alinda was an interesting and wonderful event. The course content had guide me to unlock the hidden potential as administrator and also the soul of UTM academician.
