Professor Awang Bulgiba visited Queen’s University, Belfast (QUB) from 17-22 January 2009 as part of UM’s efforts in creating sustainable international linkages. UM and QUB have expressed a mutual interest in collaborating in the area of public health given that UM has a long history of public health education and QUB is recognised as one of 5 UK Centres of Excellence in Public Health. Prof Awang Bulgiba presented on the SPM Department’s organisational structure and activities to members of the Centre for Public Health on 18 Jan. He also had meetings with the QUB Vice-Chancellor (Prof Peter Gregson), Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Prof James McElnay), Director for Research and Regional Services (Mr Trevor Newsom) and Centre for Public Health Director (Prof Ian Young). During his visit, he met many members of staff including the Academic Ambassador for Malaysia, the Nutrition research group within the Centre for Public Health and discussed possible areas of collaboration with them. Prof Awang Bulgiba hopes that the proposed collaboration with QUB will prove to be a mutually beneficial and lasting partnership
