Let’s craft an ideal 21st century city out of KL

Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, has a rich history dating back to the late 1800s. It began as a small tin-mining settlement in the 1850s and was granted city status in 1972.

Dr. Mohamad Suffian Mohamad Annuar is a Professor at the Institute of Biological Sciences @isb_um, Faculty of Science @unimalaya

He and his research team are actively working on the area of bioprocess technology and advanced biomaterials for the past 10 years. Using medium-chain-length poly-3-hydroxyalkanoates obtained via bacterial fermentation from local renewable resources (including household wastewater!), his laboratory demonstrated its potential applications for making hydrogels, bone scaffolds, nanoparticles and electro-conductive composites.

When asked to reflect on his most significant publication among more than 100 articles he have published in various indexed journals so far, Prof. Suffian mentioned his 2011 paper in Process Biochemistry, which highlights ‘the role of biological catalyst (in this case lipase) to advance sustainable and green synthesis of valuable chemicals through mild reactions’.
