Biography

I obtained my BPharm (Hons), PhD and PG Certificate in Higher Education from the University of Nottingham. I am a trained pharmacist and hold my professional memberships with the UK General Pharmaceutical Council, Malaysia Pharmacy Board and Singapore Pharmacy Council. Prior to my move to Nottingham in Malaysia, I had worked at the National University Hospital, Agency for Science & Technology, and Health Sciences Authority in Singapore for several years. I was also an Associate Lecturer at the Management Development Institute of Singapore. I am a founding member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (UK) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK).

I have received several prizes and awards in particular for my work in the community outreach and fund raising activities.

Best Poster Award from the International Biotechnology Society & The Pharmaceutical Society of Korea (2012)

University of Nottingham's Alumni Laureate Award- Special Excellence (2013)

Vice Chancellor's Achievement Award (2013)

Knowledge Exchange & Innovation Awards - Finalist (2014)

Pharmaceutical Association of Malaysia (PhAMA) President's Community Impact & Awareness Award, Grand Prize (2014)

Recent Publications

I am involved in the teaching of Physiology and Pharmacology modules for students on the Pharmacy, Biomedical Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Biosciences programmes. I am interested to improve student learning experience through different ways of delivering lecture contents and it includes self directed and experiential learning.

Current Research

My current research focuses on the development of bioassays to study the pharmacological effects of compounds isolated from local plants. My specific area of interest is the effects of these compounds in the vascular and airway smooth muscle. I am also in different collaborative teams investigating the cytotoxic effects of these natural compounds on bacteria and cancer cells. As part of my side interest I am also part of a project investigating the effects of different fats on the functional changes in the aorta of the rat. We have also done some work on treatment of malaria and the interactions with essential amino acids.

Past Research

I was one of the few investigators working on the elucidation of melatonin receptors in the mammalian vasculature. We managed to characterise the MT1 receptor on the rat tail artery using both the pharmacological and molecular tools. I worked extensively on the organ bath techniques and were well trained in the use of pharmacological tool for in vitro charaterisation of receptors.
