Mayah Biological has a strong scientific research team which consists of professors in the field of medicine research and development (“R&D”) from prestigious universities in the United States, such as professors of the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine, professors of the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at the University of Kentucky Cancer Center, and professors of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of Kentucky School of Pharmacy.
