   Biografi/ Biography :
  • Dr Norzana Abd Ghafar is a Professor of Anatomy at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre (UKMMC). She is also the current President of the Malaysian Anatomical Association (MAA). She underwent her undergraduate medical training (BMedSc) at the University of St Andrews, United Kingdom, and pursued her medical degree at the University of Glasgow, United Kingdom (MBChB). She obtained her postgraduate degree in Anatomy (MMedSci) in 1999 and a doctorate (PhD) in 2010 in UKMMC. She is actively involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses. She has been invited as an external examiner and curriculum evaluator to various medical and dental institutions either locally or internationally. She is also the pioneer of corneal cell culture in Malaysia which has stemmed from her PhD research project of tissue engineering of the cornea. Her research interest focuses on the mechanism of corneal wound healing and the development of natural product-based eye drop in the treatment of ophthalmological disorders. As an anatomist, she has published more than fifty research articles in the peer-reviewed journals. She has received numerous awards such as Excellent Service Award (2015, 2012, 2002), Best Lecturer Award (2019, 2011, 2005, 2003, 2001), and Innovation Award at the 6th International Conference on Technology and Wellness Industry (2016). She is currently an editorial board member of the Surgical Academia Journal (Malaysia) and Associate Editor of the BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine (UK).
