About

Postgraduate research forms a major part of IMU’s activities in its role as a leader in healthcare provision and innovation. Working for a higher degree in research gives students the opportunity to acquire in-depth, specialised knowledge and to apply leading-edge techniques and methodologies. The University prides itself on the facilities and support it provides to research students and on the calibre and dedication of its academic, clinical and technical staff. In addition, researchers have published their findings in high impact journals.

The University allocates more than RM1 million internal funds for research every year. Alongside this commitment, our researchers have also successfully obtained significant amounts of external grants from funding bodies such as the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and Ministry of Energy,
