Who We Are

Who we are

The Malaysian Biotechnology Information Centre (MABIC) is a not-for-profit organisation in Malaysia and the first and only NGO that promotes stakeholder engagement in all areas of biotechnology with an aim to create a conducive and an enabling environment for R&D, commercialisation and industry development.

We believe these are crucial for nation building and transforming Malaysia into a knowledge-based and high-income nation while embracing sustainable development. Agricultural, medical and industrial biotechnology are key areas that support food security, sustainable development, job creation and quality of life.

MABIC’s multi-prong and holistic approach combines all key areas critical for the development of biotechnology such as policies, regulations, education, R&D support, funding mechanism, access to technology and science literacy among the public and key stakeholders.

MABIC enjoys excellent collaboration with ministries, government agencies, research institutes, universities, trade organisations, embassies and high commissions, media, industry, farmer organisations and international partners.


MABIC is part of the International Service for the Acquisition of Agribiotech Applications (ISAAA) and its work extends beyond Malaysia.
