Department of Medical Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine at the University of Malaya is one of the major research universities in Malaysia. The institution is recognized for its work on dengue, enterovirus 71, Nipah virus, melioidosis, HIV, mycology, Salmonella, SARS-CoV-2, and other infectious diseases. The department has a well-established experience in teaching, research, and diagnostic services on any aspect of microbiology and infection. It was also assigned as a WHO Collaborating Centre for Arbovirus Reference and Research (Dengue and Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever) in June 1982. As the department’s role in education, diagnostics, and research continue to advance, a COVID-19 laboratory was set up to study SARS-CoV-2 and develop a vaccine or anti-viral drug.
