On Wednesday (24th of May 2017), we visited Top Glove to discuss joint projects with NOCERAL. We have met Mr. Wong Chong Ban, who is the Executive Director of Manufacturing at Top Glove and his R&D team to discuss how they can help us replicating blood vessels for the purpose of the microsurgery training. All this while, we are using lab rat. If this turns out to be a success, the dependency on these mice will be reduced.
Director of UMMC would like to personally thank Tan Sri Lim Wee Chai, the chairman and founder of Top Glove Group of Companies who is also a member of UM Board of Directors for initiating this and also for supporting our clinical research and training wing.
Hope this initiative will be a good start for more future collaborations.

Do you know that out of 4 people with hypertension, only 1 is aware of their high blood pressure, while another 3 are not. It is because of the lack of awareness among Malaysians to a have regular medical check up. In conjunction with the World Hypertension Day 2017 which was launched on May 15th, 2017 in UMMC, 3 departments (Primary Care Clinic, Staff and Students Clinic, and the Dietetic Department) have collaborated to conduct an awareness campaign about high blood pressure with the theme "Know Your Numbers" to encourage public to check their blood pressure level at least once a month. The campaign is still on till May 19th, 2017. Come and join us for a free blood pressure screening while the campaign is still on. See you there!
