President’s Message

It is with great privilege and honor that I accept the position to serve the Malaysian Society of Parasitology and Tropical Medicine as president. Our society is now almost fifty-five years old and it has come a long way in its mission to facilitate communication and promote wider dissemination of advances in the field of parasitology and tropical medicine in the region. Today our society has emerged to become among the most established scientific organizations in the country and recognized internationally for its commitment to scientific rigor and professionalism.

An important indicator of our success is the intellectual reputation established by our flagship publication, Tropical Biomedicine, which is now published four times a year and indexed by both PubMed and Web of Science (ISI) with an impact factor of 0.719 (2016). This journal was started thirty-four years ago in 1984 primarily to encourage local young researchers to publish in the fields of parasitology, entomology, tropical medicine and other aspects of biomedical research.
