In conjunction with ASM’s 25th Anniversary, the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) had launched the ASM Fellows’ Lecture series, i.e. FAScinate™. FAScinate™ is a play on the word “fascinate” combined with “FASc”, the abbreviation for Fellow of the Academy of Sciences Malaysia. FAScinate™ features a refreshed format, transitioning from a formal lecture-style presentation into a more casual engagement, to bring science closer to the community.

The inaugural FAScinate™ was held on 12 November 2019 at the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) Kuala Lumpur. It featured engaging presentations by six ASM Fellows, including Professor Dominic Foo from University of Nottingham Malaysia.
