Universities’ Research Centre, commonly known as URC, is a multidisciplinary research laboratory established in 1985 to assist and foster research activities in Universities, colleges and institutes of higher education as well as to provide research assistance/services to private enterprises and government organizations seeking modern technology.
The URC is staffed by specially trained technicians and professional scientists in physics, chemistry, geology, botany and zoology.
The laboratory instruments and facilities are managed by a team of above scientists and technicians assigned to the Centre from the University of Yangon. The URC has a range of expertise across the broad spectrum of Science and they are available for discussion on research problems and technical development.

URC focuses on basic, applied and translational research through four research clusters:

  • Material Science and Engineering
  • Electronics
  • Environmental Science
  • Biology

These clusters encourage partnerships among various disciplines, as well as with other educational institutions, private enterprises and government agencies.

  • Enhancing capacities of laboratory

To be in line with our vision we are going to implement a quality system aimed at improving the ability of our ‘water and food analysis laboratory’ to consistently produce valid results. The resolution of building this quality infrastructure is to be international recognized ISO standard laboratory. The following g activities are carrying out for our purpose.

  • Participating the laboratory Network (Myanmar) as a member
  • Developing a platform for sharing information
  • Making to improve performance, Competence (Method, personal, instrument, accreditation)
  • Proficiency testing
  • Trainings
  • Upgrading Instruments
  • Renovation of Laboratories
