10 Malaysian Women Making a Name on the International Stage


We are immensely proud to spotlight the global achievements of our very own Professor Rebecca Wong Shin Yee of the School of Medical and Life Sciences (SMLS). Professor Wong is not just a luminary in the field of physiology but also an inspiration for women in science worldwide.

Her dedication to research has placed her in the World's Top 2% Most-Cited Scientists list by Stanford University for three consecutive years - 2020, 2021, and 2022. This is a testament to her relentless pursuit of knowledge and significant impact on the global scientific community.

With over 40 publications in high-impact international research journals and her work being cited more than 2,700 times by researchers around the world, Prof. Wong continues to set a benchmark for excellence.

As we celebrate International Women's Day, we honor Professor Wong and the nine other remarkable Malaysian women who are carving their names on the international stage. These women are not only redefining success but are also inspiring the next generation of female leaders.

Join us in applauding Professor Rebecca Wong Shin Yee and the incredible women who continue to raise the bar for Malaysia on the world map.
