Welcome to the Malaysian Society of Pharmacology and Physiology!
I would like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your dedication and commitment to our society. Your involvement keeps us strong and vibrant, and I am grateful for all you do.
As we begin this new year, I am confident that we can accomplish great things together. We have a lot planned, including a refresher course, the online sharing session by imminent speakers and the annual society scientific meeting, MSPP2023 that will be hosted by UPM. I encourage you to get involved and make the most of your membership.
I encourage you to share your ideas and suggestions with the executive team and me. We are always looking for ways to improve and grow as a society, and your input is valuable.
Once again, welcome back to all of our returning members, and a warm welcome to our new members. I look forward to working with each and every one of you and making this a memorable and successful year for our society.

The Malaysian Society of Pharmacology and Physiology was initially known as The Malaysian Society of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics or MASPET which was formed in 1976. The society were later joined by physiologist as members and subsequently changed its name officially in 1988 to The Malaysian Society of Pharmacology and Physiology (MSPP). It has now become the primary Malaysia learned society of pharmacologists and physiologists.
Based in The University of Malaya, the oldest university in Malaysia, the Society has played a key role in promoting research among its members since its early days. The Society has been organizing its own Scientific Meetings as a platform for researchers to share their research findings and build networking and collaborations. The Meetings were originally held biennially. With increasing interest and support, the frequency of the Meetings was increased, and it was changed into an annual event.
To date, MSPP is proud to have organized 32 scientific meetings already, which was carried out on rotational and voluntary basis among local universities. The scientific meetings have not only attracted local participants to come and share their knowledge and findings but have also attracted many overseas participants from countries such as India, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Indonesia, Kuwait, Nigeria, Australia and Finland.
Members of MSPP basically work in academia, industry and also health services and consists of scientists and medically qualified personel. The society encompasses a broad spectrum of pharmacology and physiology including the basic and applied aspects of both areas. The society is not only promoting research activities but also stresses on the teaching aspect of both disciplines through a series of refresher courses conducted.
