The School of Health Sciences at USM has a very active research programme which is focused on the concept of health and wellness. The research programmes are as diversified as the expertise that is available and encompasses areas such as molecular biology, neuroscience, nutrition, sports science, forensic science, environmental and occupational health as well as nursing and health informatics.

They reflect the concept of wellness and generally demonstrate a continuum from basic to translational and to action research.

Universiti Sains Malaysia is currently designated as the only APEX University in Malaysia. In response to this new status, researchers in the School of Health Sciences are focusing research activities into clusters that work around a central theme of WELLNESS: CONNECTING THE MIND, BODY, SPIRIT AND COMMUNITY.

The School of Health Sciences has many active research groups that have a reputation for excellence and a strong and vibrant research culture. Our research groups aim to have an impact and relevance not only to the region and the nation but also the international community. This requires the triad of interdisciplinarity, multidisciplinarity and ultimately transdisciplinarity as being the essential focus of all research activities at The School of Health Sciences.

Research at the School of Health Sciences is carried out with the following goals in mind:

: Expand the role of fundamental research in health sciences with a focus on the concept of wellness.
: Support fundamental research that will help in the understanding of basic mechanisms related to health and wellness.
: Build integrated health science research programmes to address the transdisciplinary problems in health and wellness.
: Improve and expand community-linked research.
: Develop sensitive markers of environmental exposure, early (preclinical) biological response, and genetic susceptibility.
: Recruit and train the next generation of health scientists.
: Foster the development of partnerships between the School of Health Sciences and other national and international research agencies, academia, industry, and community organizations to improve health and maintain wellness.


The School of Health Sciences is aware that graduate students are important contributors to our research sustainability and we provide a supportive environment for all graduate students to achieve excellent research outcomes. Continuity of research programmes depends on the recruitment of new researchers and a strong research culture. Researchers in the School of Health Sciences are given every opportunity to expand their research activities and to have a research-based graduate student programme in each of the research clusters. There are many opportunities for graduate studies at the School of Health Sciences and we welcome graduate students to expand their research capabilities in a wide area of health sciences with an emphasis on the concept of wellness.
