Research in the School of Biosciences encompasses four broad themes and is supported by a core group of researchers in bioactive compounds (Drug Discovery & Development Team):
The rich biodiversity of Malaysia enables the discovery of novel compounds to fight infectious diseases. At Taylor’s University, the identified natural compounds will be examined for their bioactive properties as well as their mode of action. In addition to the antimicrobial research, the host-pathogen interaction research is focused to understand the disease manifestation in host cells.
Diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, a sedentary lifestyle and stress have contributed to greater incidences of heart disease, respiratory disease, diabetes and cancer, among others. Available drugs for these diseases are often accompanied by undesirable side effects, not selective enough or simply too expensive. Hence, this cluster targets the discovery of novel lead compounds and to scientifically validate natural remedies for lifestyle-related chronic diseases.
Research conducted in this cluster focuses on bioremediation, taxonomic identification of marine flora and to facilitate the development of mechanisms or processes that are in compliance with environmental laws. It will target improvement in resources savings, waste disposal and resolve environmental stress issues. In addition, researchers in this cluster also provide consultation and training in environmental management systems.
Food Science and Nutrition
The broader aim of research in this cluster is to study the fundamentals and applied aspects of new functional foods, medical foods and nutraceuticals as well as new technologies that facilitate the development of novel consumer...

Biology, biotechnology, and biosciences have been rapidly developing since 2000. To handle the data produced, computer technology is required due to the excessive amount of data. Most of the recent techniques used in DNA, RNA and protein-based research is supported by bioinformatics and computer science. Computer science offers a new era for the biological sciences. For example the building block of the cell, proteins are modeled in 3D using a computer; this enables the rapid and efficient identification of molecular interactions and signals transduction pathways. Similarly, mutations in the genetic sequence can be detected quite fast using computer technology. Since the recent advancements in computational biology decreased the cost and accelerated the research processes including the drug development, the in silico studies are highly demanded in the industry....

Geology is a knowledge system that studies material compositions, internal structure and external features of the earth, mutual interactions between earth layers and the history of the evolution of the earth. The first-level discipline of Geology complies with five second-level disciplines of Mineralogy-Petrology-Gitology, Geochemistry, Structural Geology, Palaeontology & Stratigraphy and Quaternary Geology. The researchers of our Geological disciplines mainly characterized in that of the structure and property of a basin, the depositional systems and sedimentary effects, the physical, chemical or biological effects which occurred inside the sedimentary basin, and how these geological effects control the deposition and formation of fossil fuels. During the 1950s, with the help of experts from the Soviet Union, the geological department began to recruit graduate students, and in early 1980s, authorized by the Chinese government and became one of the first departments to offer master degrees, and later to establish doctoral programs in Mineralogy, Petrology and Gitology in 1993, Geochemistry in 2003, Structural Geology in 2005. In 2003, approved by the National Ministry of Personnel, our department established the Post-doctoral Research Station in Geology.
