Norizah Mhd Sarbon
ASSOC. PROF. Ts. DR. NORIZAH MHD SARBON is a senior lecturer in Food Science at the Faculty of Fisheries and Food Science, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT). She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Food Science and Technology from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Master’s degree in Food Science and Technology from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) and received her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Food Science from University of Surrey, United Kingdom. The outcomes of her research has been presented and published in many article journals on alternative gelatin production, bioactive peptide from food protein sources, protein-protein interaction, biodegradable gelatin film and food product development at various international and national refereed journals, symposiums and conferences. Presently, 67 articles in refereed journals (15 articles were in high impact journal, Q1) and 19 proceedings have been published as result from her Msc, PhD and mostly from her current reserach. The highlight of her research publication is the publication in Food Chemistry (Q1; IF: 4.946), Food Hydrocolloids (Q1; IF: 5.089), Trend in Food Science and Technology (Q1; IF: 8.519), Food Bioscience (Q1; IF: 3.220), Food and Bioprocess Technology (Q1; IF: 3.356) AND LWT-Food Science and Technology (Q1; IF: 3.714). She had won Gold Award in British Invention Show, in London (2015). She has invented nine products and received 2 Gold and 2 Silver Awards for International Innovation & Technology Exhibition such as International Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition (ITEX) in ITEX 2005; 2013; 2014 and 2015, respectively. Besides, she also received 1 Gold Award in 2012, 3 Gold Awards in 2013, 1 Gold Award in 2014 and 1 Bronze Award in 2015 for her research at university level for Inovasi@UMT. She had received 2 Bronze Awards, 3 Bronze Awards and 1 Gold Awards for Minggu Penyelidikan dan Inovasi in 2017, 2019 and 2020, respectively. She also received award for High Impact Publication In 2014 and 2015 and 2 awards for Best Poster Presentation in her research at National (2004) and International (2013) level. Her current research funds (TPM, RACE, NRGS,FRGS and PGRG Funds) from 2012-2020 with total of RM 719,244.00, was contributed by Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) and Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) which involving the development of bioactive peptide from fish protein sources such as investigation on antioxidant and anticancer activity of eel protein hydrolysate; extraction and characterization of antihypertensive and antioxidant bioactive peptide from fish waste hydrolysate and skin gelatin of shortfin scad and chickpea protein; and also elucidation on physicochemical and antioxidative properties of cobia skin gelatin hydrolysate. The main objective of her research is to give better understanding on the potential of producing value added products from food proteins sources that have health enhancing properties. Her research also takes into consideration on environmental problems which resulted from waste of fish and poultry processing industry and non-biodegradable conventional plastic used as food packaging.
