Re:Search Bulletin has come a long way since its first publication in 2010, but the aim remains the same: sharing information regarding research in CUCMS and to enhance and nurture our research culture. One of the elements that was maintained is to have a major theme for the issue. For this issue, the theme is opportunities in university funding.
Recently the Research Management Unit (RMU) has updated the progress and status of all CUCMS Research Grant Scheme (CRGS) and the results are summarised in the section of News from Research Management Unit. It is indeed heartening to see that our internal grant has benefited many of our academicians but we still have a long way to go to reach excellence.
CUCMS has long positioned herself to be the hub for healthbased disciplines. Therefore it is fitting for Re:Search to touch on the emerging issues concerning the field. A section that is added to achieve this aim and provide avenue for scientific discussion of current topics is the section Hot from the Oven. This time the spotlight is on vaccines and its controversies.
Crème de la crème aims to showcase the research done by members of the university so that we would be proud of our achievements. This issue also includes news and updates from faculties of CUCMS regarding research as this would increase awareness and appreciation of what each other is doing and working on. The various activities organised by CGSRC is updated in the section CGSRC highlights.
As you see, the Re:Search bulletin you hold in your hands is new and improved. However, excellence is always our aim and all constructive feedback is wholly welcomed. I hope you enjoy reading through the bulletin!
