  1. To provide a platform for researchers, scientists and academicians to share their research findings describing traditional and latest applications and practices of medical and health sciences, and  the role of moral values and Maqasid al-Shari’ah therein, in line with the university’s mission of integration and Islamizisation of acquired human knowledge at a more specified and practical level.
  2. To identify research avenues, multi-disciplinary in nature; that combines scientific research findings in natural sciences and healthcare practices with legal, ethical and religious values.
