   Biografi/ Biography :


  • Dr Norefrina‚Äôs work focuses on antiviral mechanism of natural compound from herbs against human viruses as well as the fundamental understanding on pathogenesis of the viruses at molecular level. Her research involved Human Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1, Human Cytomegalovirus, Adenoviruses, Enterovirus 71 (HFMD) and Rotavirus. Her most recent work involves molecular detection of SARS-CoV-2 detection from air sample, a collaboration effort with Hospital Canselor Tuanku Mukriz and Hospital Pakar Kanak-Kanak UKM. She is also actively involved in Phage therapy study in search for alternative therapy against Multidrug Resistant Bacteria. Besides the hardcore research, Dr Norefrina is also the founder of a community outreach module, Fun With Microbes@UKM (FWM). The module nurture our fellow undergraduates from Microbiology Programme UKM to share their knowledge on microorganisms with the community through various sharing platform. The module that started in 2017 has had participation from more than 30 schools from pre-schoolers to secondary school and hold a record in The Malaysia Book of Records in 2018.
