The National Conference for Clinical Research (NCCR) is the annual assembly for Malaysia’s clinical research industry. It is when researchers, industry and regulators share updates and discuss issues pertaining to this field. NCCR brings together people from different professions and various disciplines who share a common interest in clinical research. This year, the 14th NCCR 2021 has been transformed into a dynamic and interactive virtual collaborative and learning experience.
The research sphere in Malaysia evolves and expands, growing in diversity each year. Revolving around the theme “Niche to Norm”, NCCR 2021 features several research fields of interest in precision medicine, clinical trials and digital health. With these special focuses, the NCCR 2021 will ensure the most current information, clinical updates and best practices are delivered to foster professional development and peer recognition among Malaysian clinical research community.
In order to encourage and cultivate good research practices, each year, the Young Investigator and Research Poster Awards are presented to outstanding scientists in recognition of their contributions to society. Dr. Wu Lien-Teh Society has been the sponsor for these research awards since 2015, with the aim of inculcating good research culture and to continue the medical legacy of the Penang born Dr. Wu Lien-Teh, a public health champion. He was acclaimed internationally for his control of the Manchurian Plague and is regarded as the first person to modernize China’s medical services and medical education.
