Welcome to the Malaysia-Singapore Research Conference 2018!

The Malaysia-Singapore Research Conference (MSRC) is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to foster knowledge-sharing amongst Malaysian and Singaporean organisations and researchers.

The inaugural conference in 2016 and the conference in 2017 attracted over 140 participants from various UK academic institutions each year. Building on our past successes, we are keen to explore further collaborations between different disciplines. This year’s event will feature plenary sessions with speakers from industry and academia, followed by a series of student presentations. Academic posters will be on display during networking sessions.

MSRC 2018 continues to celebrates intellectual diversity, covering themes from Science, Engineering, Medicine to the Humanities and Social Sciences. We believe that by bringing people with different backgrounds and experiences together, novel ideas and synergies can be explored. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with other delegates, speakers and our various sponsors and the day will conclude with a formal dinner.

We look forward to welcoming all of you!

ORGANISING COMMITTEE

Toh Qin Kane

Data Management

Kane is a first year Genetics PhD student in the Department of Genetics, and he is funded by the Cambridge International Scholarship. He is studying the mechanisms underpinning cell-state transitions in developmental biology by adopting a dynamical systems approach, which sees development as the dynamic unfolding of potentialities, and life as more than just its material constituents.

Wen Yao Lee

Webmaster (2018), Founder & Programme Coordinator (2016)

Wen Yao is a second-year Engineering PhD student at the Whittle Laboratory, studying the aerodynamics of aircraft engines. Before his PhD, he worked as a system designer in the Future Programmes & Strategy team of Rolls-Royce plc.
