   Biografi/ Biography :
  • Raja Zahratul Azma is a Professor of Pathology (Hematology) and senior consultant pathologist (general hematology and molecular genetic in hematology disorder). She is also the current Head of the Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine and Head of Molecular Genetic Unit, Department of Laboratory Diagnostic Services, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She received her MBBS degree from Universiti Malaya, Malaysia in 1994, and Professional Doctor of Pathology (Hematology) from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Malaysia in 2004. Throughout her career, she has trained a significant number of pathologists (hematology), who later became the main providers of pathology (hematology) services in the country. She has led multiple research projects in the field of haematology covering a wide variety of topics. Her main scientific interests are in blood cell disorders and molecular genetics of hematology diseases with her current research centred on thalassaemia, G6PD deficiency and leukaemia. She has authored a number of publications in haematology discipline including articles on thalassaemia, G6PD and leukemia. She had been invited to deliver lectures at both national and international levels. In addition to this, she is also one of the editorial board members and reviewers of several local and international journals. Currently she is a conjoint board members of postgraduate pathology programme (MPath), Malaysia and committee members of postgraduate transfusion programme (Masters of medicine (Transfusion). She is also a committee member of the National Thalassemia Registry, Malaysia and Executive Comittee Member for Global Globin Network, The Human Variome Project.
