Sanaria Inc vice-president of process development and manufacturing Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee (pic) dedicated her life to the field of scientific research.
“I have worked on filariasis (the disease that causes elephantiasis) and malaria since my university days. I have also worked on other infectious diseases like dengue fever, SARS, anthrax and plague,” she said.
Sim, who grew up in Kota Baru, received her early education at SK Zainab and Sultan Ismail College.
“When I was in high school, I participated in science fairs. I even travelled from Kota Baru to Kuala Lumpur to participate in a national science fair when I was in Form 6,” she said.
She pursued her undergraduate and graduate studies at University Malaya.
