DR. SYAHRUL IMRAN ABU BAKAR

    He was once an intern (2008) in Jabatan Kimia Melaka for 5 months, performing analysis on water and waste water samples to determine total suspended solid (TSS), biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN) and heavy metal content. Graduated with Diploma in Industrial Chemistry in 2009. Had the experience of performing synthesis of 1,3 and 1,4 anthraquinone derivatives for antioxidant activity. Experienced in performing column and preparative chromatography for purification purposes. Graduated with B. Sc. (Hons) in Applied Chemistry from Universiti Teknologi in 2011. Joined Kotra Pharma Sdn. Bhd as an analytical chemist, in charged of method development and validation section under the quality control department. Responsible to develop and validate analytical method for new products. Assisted by a lab technician to perform provides support for problems related to current analytical protocols. Responsible to guide regulatory affairs department on validation requirements for exported products. Developed and validated more than 30 products from various dosage forms of different brands (Axcel, Vaxcel, and Appeton) while in Kotra Pharma.
    Started doing PhD research in 2013, conducting various types of organic reaction to produce derivatives of flavone and bisindolylmethane (naturally occurring compounds). Derivatives synthesized were tested for their ability to inhibit a-glucosidase, b-glucuronidase, carbonic anhydrase, and cancer cell lines. Derivatives showing potential inhibition activity were then evaluated using computation drug design software to further identify to plausible binding position and optimize the structure. Recipient for Anugerah Tuanku Canselor (2016) (newspaper cuttings) from UiTM upon completing my PhD. Published more than 16 journal articles (6 articles related to my PhD) while doing PhD.
    Graduated in 2016, I joined AuRIns as a postdoctoral researcher for 6 months before being offered to become senior lecturer at Faculty of Applied Sciences, UiTM Shah Alam and a Fellow at AuRIns. Published 51 journal articles (scopus-indexed/refer to Appendix) with the H-index of 16. Currently a principal researcher for an internal grant (Bestari Perdana) and co-researcher for two other grants, namely Bestari (UiTM) and FRGS grant (KPT). Head of the NMR laboratory and organic synthesis laboratory at AuRIns.
