The effects of moderately hydrophobic
counterions (X) on cationic micellar
growth have been studied extensively
because of its various industrial
applications. We have developed a
chemical method to quantify X affinity
to ionic micelles and X-induced and
temperature induced micellar growth
(spherical-to-wormlike micelles-tovesicles) is now possible. Such a
correlation has a predictive power to
predict X-induced and temperatureinduced micellar growth
This project investigates the
characteristics of bioprospected
antimicrobial peptides and their
mechanism of inibiting target
microorganisms of importance to
public health. This research can lead
to significant contribution in upscaling
novel antimicrobials for containing the
spread of many microorganisms in the
community that are gaining resistance
to the conventional antibiotics used
today.
This research will lead to the discovery
of bioactive compounds that can
contribute to the development of
natural drugs which are now in more
demand as compared to synthesized
drugs.

IMPACT TO SOCIETY
Project 6: Prof. Dr. Rosnah Mohd. Zain
The research output arising from the maintenance of the MOCDTBS would
assist clinicians/ healthcare providers in better management of the patient
which could translate to better patient prognosis. Also dissemination of
information on oral cancer to the public which is one of the objective in this
study would increase the knowledge of the public on this cancer which is
less well known as compared to other cancers and empower them to fight
against this disease.

IMPACT TO SOCIETY
1. Dr. Wong Kok Sheik
Unauthorized viewing, information leakage, and illegal re-distribution are some of the severe threats for
multimedia contents, which triggered privacy issues and caused profit lost in billions of dollars every year.
This project aims at unifying both disciplines of data embedding and perceptual encryption into a signal
framework to protect and manage multimedia contents. Ultimately, this project generalizes the unified
framework to embed data directly into the encrypted content to ensure that privacy is held at the highest
level
2. Dr. Effirul Ikhwan Ramlan
There remains a number of unanswered questions in science, but ultimately those questions are directed
towards improving oneself (i.e., to prolong our life). Prevention is always better than cure, however to
prevent is, (in an essence translates) to have the ability to program. This project serves as a platform to
enable oneself to be programmed through the creation of new biological products (or machines) which
function as "smart" medical therapy systems, drug-delivery and detection mechanisms. Thus introducing a
new building block for the next century of computing.
3. Prof. Madya Dr. Abdullah Gani
Leverage the potential of smart mobile devices into Rich Internet Application and Big Data transmission
over cloud computing architecture.
87
IMPACT TO SOCIETY
4. Dr. Ziaur Rahman
The contribution aimed at developing new knowledge to extend the scientific frontier. The outcome has very
good practical applications and can benefit society significantly if proper commercialization is performed.
5. Prof. Dr. Siti Salwah Salim
This research is among pioneer projects in Malaysia, and the findings will be of great benefit in developing
more independent living skills for Malaysian children with communication disabilities.
6. Dr. Ng Liang Shing
This project deals with the following fundamental issues concerning the society
(A) How human intelligence arises, how to create artificial intelligence systems which is equal or more
superior than human beings (Program modifier)
(B) How to make a better Web, better than the Semantic Web (Universal Data Exchange, UDEX)
(C) How to combine the above to make Internet a Super Intelligence System (more intelligent than human
beings
(D) How to use the above to simulate and investigate social problems, especially finance, economy and
agriculture
7. Dr. Chan Chee Seng
Of all the threats to human society, including war, disease and natural disaster, one outranks all others. It is the
ageing of the human population. This research provides a process by which a socially assistive robot is
developed and used as part of a therapeutic intervention for elderly with Alzheimer's disease.
88
IMPACT TO SOCIETY
8. Dr. Rafidah Md Noor
The project has an impact especially to the rescue operation committee and generally to the society. The
intelligent transport system developed is beneficial to the rescuer in their daily operation. The project
investigates the noise pollution (environment) related to the operation of rescue team.
9. Prof. Dr. Loo Chu Kiong
The HIR project "Quantum Mechanics and Mirror-neuron Based Imitative Learning" is the cutting-edge
attempt to realize quantum computing in robotics. The robot can emulate empathic interaction and induce
therapeutic effect for patients with Dementia, mild cognitive impairment and autism.
10. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Miss Laiha Mat Kiah
Current scenarios observe that many hospitals, medical centers or even government agencies are resisting
to implement and use the electronic medical records (EMRs), mainly due to the privacy and security issues.
The aim of this project is to provide security solutions for implemetation of EMR which can be
utilized by Malaysian government particularly Health department to achieve secure implementation and
management of EMRs in the medical/health systems. While keeping EMRs safeguarded in terms of
Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability, people (be it health practitioners, patients, or visitors) are able to use
the Health or Hospital Information System facilities securely and confidently, anytime, anywhere.
89
IMPACT TO SOCIETY
11. Prof. Dr. Lee Sai Peck
The proposed techniques help software developers to effectively identify traces of features in the
source code of a large-scale software system with ease for sustainable software evolution and
maintenance, thus leading to development time and cost reduction. Feature location is one of the
most frequent maintenance activities used to identify an initial relevant location in the source code
that implements certain functionality in a software project. For large-scale software, the number of
files and methods can be very high and finding the right locations to the change requests can be
extremely challenging and time consuming. The proposed techniques that support this activity can
help software maintainers and new developers who are not familiar with the software project to
effectively support software changes during software evolution with the aim to achieve sustainable
high-quality evolution of software.

Central HIR Facility
Many high-end equipment have been installed in Bangunan HIR and this will lead to enhancing
research and building up expertise. This will reduce dependence on outside sources and will
reverse the trend where UM will be sort after for collaborative research.
These equipment will be made available for booking by researchers from IPTAs and IPTS, reducing
outsourcing and saving cost to the country.
