UPM WINS 6 GOLD, 3 SPECIAL AWARDS IN BIOMALAYSIA 2012


KUALA LUMPUR, 7 Nov – Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) won six gold, four silver, and four bronze medals at the recent BioMalaysia 2012 Conference and Exhibition held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC).

Other than medals, UPM also garnered three special awards - two BioInnovation Awards and the MIMOS Prestigious Award.

The Biotechnology Innovation of the Year award was presented by the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Maximus Ongkili to Prof. Dr. Maznah Ismail from the Institute of Bioscience for her product known as “Kenaf Bio-Oil From Waste To Health and Wealth”, which was also a gold medal winner.

Her product is based on a novel breakthrough concept that ultimately transforms low-cost kenaf seed into a high value-added health-promoting product.



Prof. Dr. Suhaila Mohamed, also from the Institute of Bioscience, received the Women Bio Innovator of the Year award. Her entry, a product known as “Promolaktin: Milk Production Enhancer from Cultivated Seaweeds”, is a milk-production enhancer dietary supplement, derived from anti-estrogenic vegetables, that increases milk production and is believed to suppress hormone-related cancers.

Dr. Mohammad Hossin, who studied for his PhD. at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology won the MIMOS Prestigious Award for his research entitled  “Hybrid Performance Measures and Mixed Evaluation Method for Data Classification Problems”.

The BioInnovation Awards, were presented in conjunction with the BioMalaysia 2012 Conference and Exhibition jointly organised by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation Sdn. Bhd. and Protemp Exhibitions Sdn. Bhd.

To cap it all, UPM’s display also scooped the “Most Creative  Booth Design award at the exhibition.
