The International Medical University and IndiPharm (M) Collaborate to Provide Clinical Research Training and Education

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the International Medical University (IMU) and IndiPharm at the Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur today in conjunction with the BioMalaysia Conference 2015. The exchange of MoU was witnessed by Yang Berhormat Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation and Yang Berhormat Dato’ Sri Ahmad Shabery bin Cheek, Minister of Agriculture and Agro-based Industry.

The MoU reaffirms the commitment of IMU and IndiPharm to provide high quality and customised research training programmes to clinical staff engaged in the conduct of clinical trials. Through the programmes, both public and private sector personnel involved in the managing/monitoring of clinical research activities will be able to achieve a heightened level of work readiness, resulting in an increase in the number of clinical trials that can be conducted in Malaysia and ASEAN.

IMU’s Institute of Research, Development and Innovation (IRDI) will be in charge of this training programme with IndiPharm. This is in line with IRDI’s role which include providing research directions, research management and oversight, consultancy and services to various stakeholders.

“This collaboration complements IMU’s aspiration to be the leader in healthcare education. In addition to our existing healthcare programmes, we are excited to work with IndiPharm to train and enhance the skills of the workforce in clinical research management,” said Tan Sri Dato’ Dr Abu Bakar Suleiman, President, IMU.

This strategic collaboration will tap into IndiPharm’s extensive network and experience in the field of clinical research training. Mr. Jeffrey Scott Yablon, Vice President, Business Development & General Manager Asia, IndiPharm acknowledged the importance of creating differentiated training programmes for practical clinical research management and work readiness and added “We believe the training programmes we plan to implement are greatly needed, and will further propel Malaysia into a leadership position for clinical development in ASEAN.”

This concerted effort is in line with the government’s Economic Transformation Programme, which aims to create a supportive ecosystem to grow clinical research in Malaysia.

Public and private sectors interested in knowing more on this training programme are invited to join the IRDI’s Industry Talk on Clinical Research Training that will be held in October at the IMU Bukit Jalil campus.
