DR. AIDEN LEE YUNG JEN
Class of 2019
MSc Molecular Medicine (Mixed Mode)

 

Being one of the pioneer students of the INFORMM MSc in Molecular Medicine (Mixed Mode) programme, I can vouch for the abundance of knowledge, both theoretical and practical, as well as the breadth of real-world perspective contained in this program. Having joined as a full time student, I found the program short (one and a half years) and fulfilling, providing ample experience in actual research and relevance in industrial application, which were crucial in helping me to secure a job in the pharmaceutical industry even before my graduation ceremony. For any aspiring student out there, I recommend that you consider this program if you wish to better your prospects in the biomedical/pharmaceutical world.

Dr. Aiden Lee is currently the Medical Advisor and MSL Manager for Women’s Healthcare (Malaysia & Singapore), Bayer Pharmaceuticals Division (updated 2021).

Class of 2020
MSc Molecular Medicine (Mixed Mode)

 

As a graduate from INFORMM, I had benefited a lot from the MSc in Molecular Medicine (Mixed Mode) one and a half years programme. Right after I finished my study, I managed to work as an RA at INFORMM for a year and had gained valuable working experience there. Although I was from a different field (radiology), with the guidance, knowledge, and experience from the lecturers, lab staff, and seniors in INFORMM, I managed to master the techniques and skills in the lab in a short period of time. The knowledge I gained in Molecular Medicine was beyond my expectation as the course taught in this MSc was the latest, updated, and advanced in the molecular medicine field. The most impactful experience was when we needed to complete a short research project in Sem 3 where I initially thought it was impossible but eventually possible with the help of experienced supervisor and helpful friends. As an alumnus, I believe that with hard work and motivation, anyone can finish this program with flying colours.

MSc Molecular Medicine (Mixed Mode)

 

I'm Carol from Penang. The MSc in Molecular Medicine (Mixed Mode) programme has widened my knowledge especially in genetics, immunology, infectious diseases, and cancer. I have gained knowledge and insights to prepare me for the industry, which is totally different from academics. Moreover, I had the opportunity to carry out a research project which is especially beneficial for those who have not conducted lab work before. Learning in class has brushed up my soft skills as well. The whole programme is taught by quality lecturers.

 My supervisor’s perpetual energy, encouragement and enthusiasm in research motivated me. The laboratory and administration teams at INFORMM are very supportive and friendly. I had excellent research and multicultural exposure while studying at INFORMM. Outcomes from my research work won an award in BioMalaysia 2009. I was awarded a Research University Fellowship to support my study and later secured a scholarship for a PhD at The University of Queensland, Australia. After my Master’s I worked as a Lecturer and Laboratory In-charge at the College of Medical Sciences in Nepal. Under my leadership, the laboratory was enrolled in multiple national and international quality control programs. I was successful in introducing a Laboratory Information System (LIS) and CME programs in the laboratory as well.
