Message from President
Assalamualaikum Wm Wb and Greetings to all!
It is an honor and privilege to be re-elected as the President of the Malaysian Society of Plant Physiology (MSPP) for the second term, 2017-2019. I shall continue to fulfilling the mission to provide excellent leadership by encouraging and promoting the development of plant physiology, both nationally and internationally.
The MSPP is a professional scientific body dedicated towards promoting all aspects of research and development in tropical plant biology. I must acknowledge the previous MSPP executive committees whom have contributed significantly and worked hard over the past few years. Without their efforts, MSPP will not be able to continue her mission. I would also like to welcome the newly elected MSPP executive committees for this new term. I am equally as excited if not, as all to look forward to a more significant contribution by this energetic, creative and innovative team members.
To accomplish its mission, MSPP holds an annual conference and AGM meetings as the main platform to exchange ideas as well as often partners with professional scientific exhibitors whom have been very supportive, in acquiring new technologies and strengthening networking among academicians, researchers, stakeholders and students. I am also pleased to announce that we have just successfully organized our 27th MSPP Conference, covering various aspects of fascinating research in plant and crop sciences; they are very well attended and supported. I am glad to announce that our official journal, the Journal of Tropical Plant Physiology (JTPP) was successfully indexed with CAB abstract and MyJurnal last year. In addition, the Transactions of the Malaysian Society of Plant Physiology were recently indexed in CAB abstracts and can be accessed online. As an indexed journal, I hope to have our JTPP to be published more frequently with high impact and quality articles. I hope that the coming years will witness other exciting achievements for the society.
Last but not least, I welcome all new MSPP members to our society. I wish success and happiness to all.
