New base for bridging health and the wider environment

Established in 2011, our NUMed campus in Johor, Malaysia, is expanding.

It will include a new base for research bridging health and the wider environment.

Tropical Health and Environmental Research is this new base. It will follow the World Health Organisation’s One Health approach.

The new facility opens a wide range of new research opportunities.

Expanding and developing research opportunities

Professor Brian Walker, new Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research Strategy and Resources, wants your help.

The event aims to:

  • identify existing and potential collaborations to grow our research community across South East Asia
  • expand our research capacity at NUMed
  • develop and catalyse our new research facilities

Excellent facilities

We're equipping the new facility with:

  • wet labs for environmental quality analysis in:
    • water chemistry
    • microbiology
    • quantitative molecular biology
  • office and laboratory space
  • residential facilities

There are plans for a clinical care walk-in facility. We will act as a base of international quality to support research in South East Asia.
