Alumna Nirmala Boo Pathy, associate professor at the University of Malaya, about the MSc Epidemiology programme:

“I have always had an avid interest in doing medical research. I did my research on coffee and tea intake and risk of breast cancer. My class was very active and we always engaged in health discussions and debates, which in return helped me to promote my understanding in epidemiology. Not forgetting the wonderful and well-equipped teachers that we had. “

Nirmala Boo Pathy was born in Malaysia. After obtaining her medical degree from the University of Malaya, she was in clinical practice for 5 years. In 2008 she graduated in Public Health from the University of Malaya and in that same year she obtained a fellowship award from the European Commision to pursue her master degree in clinical epidemiology at Utrecht University. She subsequently completed a PhD in cancer epidemiology at Utrecht University.
