THE Dr Wu Lien-Teh Society is celebrating the legendary Malaysian plague fighter by sponsoring the Research Awards in the National Conference for Clinical Research.

The conference, which will be held in Penang from May 27 to 29, will see more than 400 scholars and practitioners from all around the world sharing their experience and medical knowledge.

Society chairman Datuk Dr Anwar Fazal said there would be two categories — Young Investigator Award and Best Poster Award.

“Dr Wu was the first Malaysian Chinese medical doctor to study at the University of Cambridge and the first Malaysian Chinese to be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

“His birthday was on March 10 and to mark his birthday, we wanted to do something that would benefit others in the medical field,” he told a press conference at the Penang Heritage Trust in George Town on Sunday.

Dr Anwar said that RM2,350 had been allocated to be given away as the six prizes.

“Young medical practitioners can submit their research papers to stand a chance to win these awards,” he said.

He said the awards would go to Malaysian scholars and the deadline for submission was April 3.

“We need to mould more legends just like Dr Wu who gave so much for our nation and to the medical field,” he added.
