Topic: Invitation to do postgraduate thesis and research project in addiction
Dear Colleagues and students,
University Malaya Centre of Addiction Sciences (UMCAS) is a newly formed center of research under the Health and Translational Medicine (HTM) Cluster of University Malaya.
We are a group of clinicians of various disciplines including medicine, dentistry and clinical psychology. However we have collaborators in other disciplines like pharmacology, science and the humanities. We also collaborate with other research centres within UM like CeRiA and outside the university eg. INFORRM (USM), National Anti-Drug Agency (NADA).
We would like to invite interested colleagues and students who would like to do research in addiction in Malaysia to join us. At present we are active in these fields of research;
1. Nicotine dependence
2. Heroin dependence
3. Amphetamine/Stimulant dependence
4. Alcohol dependence
5. Prison related addiction issues
6. Spirituality and addiction
7. Culture and addiction
8. Behavioral addiction eg. Pathological gambling, internet addiction
