Continuing documentation of chemical constituents (secondary metabolites) in Malaysian plants and microorganisms. Potential applications of bioactive compounds as models or templates for drug development studies –may in principle lead to new pharmaceuticals. The synthesis of low- dimensional nanostructures in this research will lead to innovative development of high-performance and energy- efficient optoelectronic devices applicable in lighting, data- storage and ICT products, promoting greener and sustainable living to the society.
Project 7Project 8Project 9 An Empirical Kinetic Approach to Study the Occurence of Ion Exchange at the Aqueous Cationic Micellar Surface (PI: Prof. Dr. Mohammad Niyaz Khan) Mechanism of Binding of Antimicrobial Peptides on Targeted Bacterial Membranes (PI: Assoc Prof. Koshy Philip) Bioactive Compounds from Malaysian Plants (PI: Prof. Datuk Dr. A. Hamid A. Hadi) 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-to- vesicles) is now possible. Such a correlation has a predictive power to predict X-induced and temperature- induced 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.

Tiekink) Network Analysis of Social, Technological and Biological Networks (P.I: Prof. Dr. Kurunathan Ratnavelu) Guerbet gylcosides have been the potential for the formulation of new drug delivery system. This project has sucessfully demonstrated this applications. Other potential application such as membrane protein crystalization has also been explored. The work from these research has been published in high impact journals and has initiated many collaborations world-wide. To generate molecules gold-rich clusters designed to optimise luminescent behaviour for applications in energy storage, sensing and biology. To design novel organic, including co- crystals, and metal-based compounds as potential therapeutic agents against various ailments including cancer, inflammatory disease, tropical diseases, viruses and fungi. There is a unique academic and commercial opportunity to develop network research in Malaysia, as vast stores of computerised data and methods can be tapped to address various local and global research problems.

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.

87 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.
88 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.
89 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.
90 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.
