Chairperson's Message

“Promoting multi-disciplinary research, product development and training of personnel in priority areas to drive local industries towards sustainable utilization of natural resources is at the forefront of our activities. We intend to achieve this through organic growth of our research capabilities and also through smart partnerships with local and foreign collaborators in academia and also industry”

The Centre for Biodiversity Research is one of the research centres in Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), Malaysia. The establishment of this centre is the amalgamation of 3 diverse but inter-related groups namely, Aquaculture & Aquatic Bio-Diversity, Natural Products and Plant Biotechnology.

The Centre intends to serve as a catalyst for education, training and commerce in the related areas at all levels. We organise seminars, workshops and conferences from time to time, and encourage you to visit our site often for updates on events.
