President's Message

Assalamualaikum and Dear Colleagues,

I am humbled and very honoured by the opportunity to serve as President of the Malaysian Society of Plant Physiology for this term (2023-2025). I wish to continue the excellent work of previous Presidents and Executive Committees by working together with the newly elected Executive Committee and members in enabling the Society to achieve its mission and continue to thrive in this challenging environment.

It has been a privilege for me to serve under outgoing President Dr. Ahmad Nazarudin Mohd Roseli. He is very dedicated about the Society affairs and our members, and has led the Society in an exemplary manner. Our Society has been blessed with many committed members like him who have contributed in various ways and at different levels.

MSPP has the important mission of promoting scientific interactions and advancements in the field of plant physiology among researchers and related practitioners. As a scientific community, we have been successful in creating an intellectually engaging environment in our conferences and workshops that can be further developed into interdisciplinary and inter-institutional collaborations to have an impact on Malaysian agriculture. This is an area that can be expanded further by stepping forward to contribute towards policy making and current practice.

Our conferences, workshops, awards and our publications provide a great opportunity for MSPP members to enhance their own networks, and also become actively involved in shaping the MSPP and further develop its impact. I would like to encourage all members to share their ideas and suggestions, become more involved in our activities and work together in ensuring MSPP is relevant to the community at large.

Finally, I welcome all new MSPP members to the society. I wish for everyone to be healthy and happy always.

With best wishes,

ASSOC. PROF. DR. ROOHAIDA OTHMAN President (2023-2025)
