On behalf of the organising committee, I warmly welcome you to the 2nd Malaysian Anatomical Association Conference (MAAC) 2022 in the beautiful Iskandar Puteri city of Johor, Malaysia. The long-awaited conference after our first successful MAAC 2019 will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of November 2022. We are honored to be able to organize this conference in collaboration with Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed).

We have chosen the conference theme ‘Anatomy in the New Norms: Tracing New Trajectory in Teaching and Research’ to reflect the highly relevant aspect to discuss in the light of the current situation and the reality that we are facing since the world has to face the Covid-19 pandemic. This is our first hybrid conference, and we hope that we could give you the best opportunities to be part of the wider anatomy community despite the challenges that we face with the pandemic. The pandemic can no longer stop us from reaching out and creating impacts to all corners of the globe, so we hope to offer participants the privilege of virtual conference if your circumstances do not allow you to join us physically. This conference will be one for us to share our thoughts and exchange ideas on how to chart our journey forward to reach the new heights.

MAAC 2022 will once again welcome fellow anatomists and researchers to share a wide spectrum of research topics which include cell biology, neuroscience, developmental biology, clinical anatomy, forensic anatomy, anatomy education, anthropology and applied anatomy. We hope that all participants will be able to extend the network, engage with the sessions in full excitement and gained as much as possible from this event. I would like to thank Professor Dr. Norzana Abd Ghafar, our previous MAAC 2019 chairperson for providing her wisdom and guidance as an Advisor for MAAC 2022, all our international and local speakers and the committee members who have been working really hard to ensure the success of MAAC 2022. Also a special thanks to Professor Christopher Baldwin (NUMed CEO and Provost) who is always very supportive of MAAC, and our collaborators from NUMed. I would also like to thank all of the sponsoring organizations for their generous financial support and finally, to all of you, our conference participants who really made everything that we have planned in MAAC 2022 ‘A Dream Comes True’.

Selamat datang!

Best regards
