Editorial Board Members

 

Khatijah Yusoff
FASc, FIAS, FTWAS; PhD; DSc (hon causa) (La Trobe)

Khatijah has over 32 years' experience investigating the molecular virology of Newcastle disease virus. Her current research interest is in in the development of NDV as a therapeutic oncoviral vaccine through the use of reverse genetics. She is also involved in the molecular biology of other organisms, in particular on the use of nanobiotechnology, surface display technology and phage therapy. She is currently in the Vice-President of World Academy of Sciences (TWAS); and sits in the Councils for the Academy of Sciences Malaysia, the Islamic World Academy of Sciences, TWAS, and the Council of Science Advisers (CSA) of the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB).

Lau Yee Ling
PhD

Professor Dr Lau Yee Ling is at present the Head of the Department of Parasitology, Faculty of Medicine at University of Malaya (UM). She started her academic career as a lecturer at Monash University Sunway Campus while waiting for her PhD viva in 2008. During her time as a lecturer in Monash University, she was awarded two Monash University Research Grants in which enabled her to continue her research in the field of molecular parasitology. She then returned to her alma mater, University of Malaya, as a Senior Lecturer in 2009. She was granted tenure in 2010 and promoted to Associate Professor in 2013, and Professor in 2019. Professor Lau has been awarded University of Malaya Excellent Service Award three times in 2011, 2013 and 2015. She was awarded MSPTM Nadchadtram Medal in 2014. She has also been awarded a few times for her innovation in research including the Grand Prize in National Exclusive Innovation Challenge Award 2018.

Suet Lin Chia
PhD

Suet Lin obtained his PhD in the field of Medical Biotechnology from Universiti Putra Malaysia in year 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Khatijah Yusoff. He underwent a two-year post-doctoral training in the Seymour’s lab in the University of Oxford. His field of interest is to develop a potent oncolytic Newcastle disease virus for the treatment of cancer. Currently, his research involves genetic modification of NDV genome to reduce the virus pathogenicity towards birds. In addition, he is also working on cloning immunostimulatory genes into the virus backbone to enhance the oncolytic properties of the virus.
