The main aims of physiological anthropology is to conduct research on humans in modern society from both physiological and cultural standpoint, in an effort to create a truly healthy and comfortable living environment. This concept of study never been introduced in Sabah or Malaysia and even in other ASEAN countries. Since Japan is the pioneer of physiological anthropology, we have taken the opportunity to gather their expertise to introduce the concept of physiological anthropology to us. We envision that UMS will take this opportunity to become a leader of physiological anthropology not only in Malaysia but ASEAN as a whole.

1) Pre-symposium: 1st Fellows’ Scholarly meeting
