The Research and Community Service Institution formally consisted of two independent institutions, namely the Research Institution and the Community Service Institution. Considering that the research and the community service activities could not be separated in the implementation of the Tri-Duties of a university and the effectiveness of the human resource management, the Decree of the Rector of Hasanuddin University No. 2630/H4/0/2010 of June 29, 2010 was issued to integrate both institutions called the Research and Community Service Institution.
As a sub-system of Hasanuddin University Organization and Working Management, the Research and Community Service Institutionin its operational activities makes use of the human resources and other facilities available in the university. Therefore, the institutionhas the capacity to settle and advocate the problems which may occur in the society in relation to the applications of Sciences Technology, Arts.
The Health Research and Development Centre of Hasanuddin University was established in 2011 as a unit within the Research and Community Service Institution. To realize the vision and missions of theuniversity as a research university and to increase the quality and quantity of the research, and which can be made as the basis of the implementation of the Tri-Duties of a Higher Education Institution, the centre was formed to coordinate the implementation of the research and communitiy service activities in the field of health. It is also expected to become the centre or the umbrella organization for the individual/autonomous researches or institutions involving the inter-disciplines and synergizing the health researches in Hasanuddin University, which can benefit the academic world and the whole community.
The centre is the umbrella organization of the health cluster of various disciplines of medical science, dentistry, community health, pharmacology, veterinary, nursing science, psychology, and other disciplines related to the health sciences.
The centre has conducted various basic and applied researches in the field of healthsciences. In line with the Road Map andPrime Development Plan of Hasanuddin University which comprised Nutrition and Tropical Diseases, as well as the Management and Health Risks and Safety.

Research and Service Activities (Selected)
The Research and Development of Demography and Gender Centre (RD2GC) is one of the twelve Research and Development Centres under the Research and Community Service Institution of Hasanuddin University. The centre established in January, 2011 was the merger of 2 (two) study centres in the university:The Demography Study Centre (DSC) was established in 1970’s, and the Women Study Centre (WSC) was established in 1980’s.
On one hand, the dynamics of the development issues, the demands for WSC and DSC have become wider and more complex. WSCwhich formerly assisted the research activities and informed the issues concerning the facts that women have been left behind in the process of development,now has become the Gender Research Centre (GRC). The jobs of the centre have become more extensive comprising the efforts to achieve the equality between the men and the women in all stages of development, starting from the planning, implementation, control, and evaluation of the development results called “Gender in Development”, women empowerment and children protection; prevention efforts in the household violence,and trafficking. On the other hand, DSC has faced a number of challenges ofdemographic problems with the their variations, such as the rate of population growth, under-five-year old children, early-aged children, elderly people, each of which has their own different problems; migrationof Indonesian manpower, health, education, workforces. Those problems do not stand separately but rather relating to one another, including the gender issues (between men and women).
By integrating DSC and WSC into GRC, Hasanuddin University implicitly directs the studies/researches and advocacyin the field of demography and gender as the complete and whole issue or unit to produce the formula of the development policy and program comprehensively, so that the program can ultimately contribute to the improvement of the indexes of the Human Development, Gender Development, and Gender Empowerment. The activities can also be implemented partially in every field (demography and gender), and can also be implemented simultaneously with the focus on the two issues.
The research and advocacy implemented BY RD2GC focus on the fields of: (i) the demography and the workforce; (ii) the field of development being responsive to gender (Gender-Priority); (iii) and or the combination between the demography and Gender-Priority.
The primary issues of the research are: the Quality of Human Resources and Work Forces, Population Mobility, Education and Employment, Population and Health, HIV, Children Protection, Gender-Priority, Issues about Gender, and Community Social Environment. Whereas the focus of the consultation/advocation/Services are among others: Gender pathway analysis, the arrangement of sorted data/profile of population and gender statistics, the formulation of demography policy, the advocacy for solving health problems of mothers and babies, the Women Empowerment and Child Protection, formulation of Planning design and Gender Responsive Budgeting.

At present, Biotechnology has developed very rapidly. This progress is marked by the various technological inventions, among others genetic engineering, culture tissue, DNA recombinant, proliferation of stem cell, cloning, et cetera.The technology has enabled human to recover from genetic or chronic diseases such as cancers and/or AIDS. In the field of food, by using such technology, better plants resistant to pests and ecological pressure and yields with high quality nutrition can be produced. The application of the biotechnology now can also be used to preserve the environment, to clean oil spilt in the ocean, and to clean the rivers and oceans from toxic substances using new types of bacteria.Therefore, the Centre for Research and Biotechnological Development of Research and Community Service Institution (RCSI) of Hasanuddin University has the following missions:
a) To become the main agent in disclosing and increasing the added values of the biological resources through the mastery of the biotechnology which includes: cell and tissue biotechnology, genetic engineering, and bioprospecting of the genetic resources;
b) To participate in the efforts to educate the nation through cooperation and of the results of biotechnological researches and the genetic resources;
c) To improve the performance and the management ofgood research institutions (good corporate governance).

Therefore, the functional staff members of P3KM consist of the academicians of the university from different disciplines such as economics, sociology, development administration, public policy, anthropology, agriculture, engineering, regional planning, law, public health, and other disciplines related to policy and development management.
In line with the advancement achieved by the university in various fields, P3KM has become one of the most important pillars to achieve advancement and success. The university has developed the concept of’ ‘local autonomy’ which has become reference paradigm of and an approach to regional development and is parallel with the implementation of autonomy and development decentralisation in Indonesia. To anticipate the rapid changes and development of the strategic environment in the future, the P3KM continuously develops academic culture and atmosphere conducive to the internal consolidation through institutional strengthening. For that reason, P3KM keeps developing itself to play a part to contribute the university goal/target attainment.
