UMBI’s Participation in ICDDTM’18-Two Awards Received

From the 4th to 5th of December, 2018, seven students (Ryia Illani, Muhiddin, Najwa, Joanne, Hon Kha Wai, Siti Maizatul and Siti Hawa) and three research fellows (Dr. Syakima, Dr. Nadiah and Dr. Aiman) from UMBI participated in the first International Conference on Drug Discovery and Translational Medicine 2018, organized by Malaysian Association of Cancer Research held at the Everly Hotel, Putrajaya. Six of us were selected for oral presentation, three for poster presentation and two for speed oral presentation.

The lectures were of particular interest especially in applying precision medicine for drug discovery in cancer and other diseases. This conference has educated us on the difficulty and criteria required for drug discovery, especially in this era. Distinguished speakers from the UK, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Ireland and Malaysia shared their knowledge and interesting findings on drug discovery and translational medicine.

We would also like to congratulate two of our students who won awards during the conference:

  1. Mr. Hon Kha Wai for Best Speed Oral Presentation with the title “Profiling of Exosomal Circular RNA in FOLFOX-resistant Colon Cancer Cells
  2. Ms Ryia Illani Mohd Yunos for People Choice’s Award Oral Speed Presentation with the title “Uncovering the Landscape of Somatic Mutations in Malaysian Colorectal Cancer Patients via Whole Genome Sequencing”

Congratulations to all the winners!
