Leong Yin-Hui
National Poison Centre of Malaysia
Universiti Sains Malaysia

Dr Leong Yin-Hui is a researcher in National Poison Centre of Malaysia, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). She obtained her PhD in Food Safety in 2011 from USM. She had served as a post-doctoral fellow in USM for 3 years and has more than 3 years of working experiences in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries.

Dr Leong’s research interests have been focused on the public health, food safety, food analysis and new drug compounds or contaminants discovery in clinical, environmental and food matrices. Currently, she is actively involves in the research of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), for example dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs in human breast milks, food and environmental samples; investigation of the efficacy of various plant extracts in antifungal and aflatoxins inhibition properties and other researches related to food and nutritional security. The outcomes of the studies have been published in both the national and international journals. 

           Dr Leong also provide advisory services and training to students, industries or government sectors on Food Safety, GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), LC-MS/MS instrumentation as well as contract research on demand. As a food scientist, Dr Leong knows very well how important of safe and high quality food for mankind and how to prevent deterioration or improve the quality of food. Food safety is considered to be a basic requirement of food quality and it involves the safe and acceptance levels of various natural or chemical contaminants which can render a food injurious to health leading to acute or chronic disease.

Research Interest: Risk Assessment Of Natural Or Chemical Contaminants, Food Safety And Public Health.
