We Focus and Contribute to Research Development

Welcome to the Team!

The research of Dr. Mohammad Zainal Abidin is to study the potency of animal by-products towards useful product transformations such as bioactive peptides and renewable biofuel. In addition, he is applying a biotechnology-based approach to leather processing and discovering the tanning and dyeing of the leather process. Our work is a multidisciplinary research field and integrates areas of enzymology, biochemistry, and organic chemistry. We are intensely interested in the discovery and design of novel biocatalysts for synthesizing important relevant products (pharmaceutical and biofuel). Another area of interest is the development of a new biocatalyst and the finding of novel tanning and dyeing agent for eco-friendly leather processes. Overall, we work on the characterization and optimization of functional animal by-product transformations, which are eco-friendly and sustainable in production. 


We have published many publications both nationally and internationally. We have also made many contributions in the field of science through the research we have done. Having a solid research team makes each research run faster.
