   Biografi/ Biography :

  • Dr Syakima’s research leadership was evidenced with the appointment in various important management positions in UMBI such as the Head of Quality Assurance, Team Leader for COVID-19 RT-PCR testing, Chief Technical Officer, Lead Coordinator of Cancer Biobank, Team Leader of Cancer Genomics and Visiting Fellow of Newcastle University (UK). Her expertise in cancer research has been recognized with numerous awards, including the distinguished UK-based Rutherford Strategic Link Short Term Grant Fellowship Award by Newcastle University. Under her excellent research leadership and activities, UMBI has developed high standard research performance in recent years with Dr Syakima directly contributing to 6 IPs, 88 published articles, 51 conference papers, 2 books, and 6 book chapters. The numbers and quality of publications she published exceeded aspirational expectation of a young scientist and already meeting exceptional research performance of a senior researcher. She has a solid track record in securing competitive national and international grants. She is the PI (5 projects totalling RM510k), co-PI and co-investigator (21 projects totalling RM5.488million) for a total of 26 competitive grants totalling at an astounding RM5.998million (year 2013-2020). With 12 grants completed with publications and postgraduates as outputs, her excellent postgraduate supervision leads to 11 graduates (year 2017-2020) and currently supervising 10 postgraduates. Her leadership and achievements in Molecular Medicine and Genomics field have led to international recognition, evidenced by an upward trajectory on citations track, leading to a total cumulative citation of 1255 and h-index of 19. The high h-index and citations clearly depicted the impact of Dr Syakima’s research and indicating her leadership and expertise by scientists worldwide.
