   Biografi/ Biography :

  • My research focuses on the pathogenesis of the tropical pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei and the host defense mechanism against the infection. Major research collaborations with Stanford University (USA) University of Sheffield (UK) and KAUST (Republic of Saudi Arabia) have contributed to significant new knowledge on the bacterium’s virulence and pathogenic mechanisms, as well as the failure of the host immune response. The research findings have led to >100 research papers, review articles, and book chapters, as well as invitations to speak at national and international conferences and review grant applications for funders from Malaysia, UK, Switzerland, Austria and Italy. I have successfully trained >50 graduate students. I am also an Associate Editor (Prokaryote Genomics) for BMC Genomics and a regular peer reviewer for international journals in the field.
