Industry Engagement

At CDR, we offer placement for industrial training for undergraduate students with chemistry or biology background. In 2016, the total number of industrial trainees that we received was 36 from Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Asian Institute of Medicine, Science and Technology (AIMST) and from within Universiti Sains Malaysia itself.

In 2016, we also hosted one undergraduate student from Keele University, UK to conduct a short project in neuroscience field.

Application for industrial training placement is now CLOSED.

Community Engagement

In line with the vision of USM Division of Industry & Community Network (DICN) to serve the needs of the community, we have conducted several community-based projects with aims ranging from alleviating burden, creating awareness to instilling interest in science among young minds. Some of the projects include: visits to the childrens' cancer ward of Penang Hospital by the centre’s Sentuhan Qalbu Group, visit to Abu Nur Orphanage by representatives of CDR Welfare Club, and hosting participants of Malaysian Brain Bee Challenge (MBBC) and MBBC Juniors from secondary and primary schools in Penang and Perak (Zone B).
