Director’s Message

 

Assalamualaikum ,

 Malaysia, being rich in biodiversity and natural resources has prompted us to further elevate and venture into the Research & Business Development (R&BD) of bio-products with high commercial value and economic returns to society and the nation. It was with this in mind that IBD was purposely designed as a meeting point of academic research and practical requirements of the industries.
We strongly believe that IBD have established an essential symbiotic environment from which both parties are able to draw benefits and capitalize from each other’s strength to produce innovative novel products and processes deriving from our natural resources (herbs and plants) to make Malaysia less dependent on foreign technology.
IBD also prides itself in playing a pivotal role on transferring knowledge via its Life Long Learning programs and become a centre that is able to develop innovative human capital to support the ever changing global demands of the biotechnology and process industries.
Our staff members are highly dedicated and experienced in the full spectrum of R&D, Business Development and Training and warmly welcome future works and collaboration with fellow scientists, entrepreneurs and academia both regionally and abroad.
Please feel free to explore our services that could further add value to your resources and our journey to realize the nation’s agenda in realizing the vision of Malaysia’s becoming a high income nation through sustainable biotech R&BD activities.
Welcome to IBD, your bio-product development one stop centre.
Yours Sincerely,

Prof Ramlan Aziz
Director
Institute of Bioproduct Development
