First of all, congratulations to Sasiprapa Poomrattanangoon for being awarded for Royal Golden Jubilee PhD scholarship. She has started working on doing research in the area of using nanomaterials for tissue engineering.

This month Dr. Pissuwan gave an oral presentation entitled “Biological responses to encapsulating layers and cellular activities in a co-culture system of T cells encapsulated with PSS-coated gold nanorods” in Gold Conference 2018, Paris, France.

As well, N-BMR members joined a fire prevention practice. We thanked the staff who takes care on the safety issue and gave us a good opportunity to join this useful activity.

Finally, both undergraduate and graduate students gave a talk on their research during summer break.

Quite a few things happened to our N-BMR Laboratory this month. First of all, we would like to say good bye to Issaraporn. She did quite well on doing research at N-BMR Lab during her Co-operative Education Period. We thank for her contribution with us.

We also thank for a kind visit of Associate Professor Pornpan Pungpo (Head of Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, UBU). Thanks a lot for consider N-BMR laboratory to be a place for on a Co-operative Education Project.

Another good news is that Dr. Pissuwan has been selected to receive Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship 2018. Finally, it is time for celebration for many great things happened in May !!!

On April 27 (the second safety day of Mahidol University), our laboratory received a trophy from the Acting President of Mahidol University. This trophy indicates that Nanobiotechnology & Nanobiomaterials laboratory could achieve ESPReL standard. We also congratulated to other 14 laboratories from Mahidol University that achieved this standard too. We thank to COSHEM committees for their guidance on the safety of the laboratory. We also thank Mr. Sumet Kittipoom and Mr. Phairat Sirikiatdamrong for their supports. Finally, our laboratory could pass the ESPReL standard because of a great teamwork from N-BMR members.

During Thai New Year period, the traditional Thai activity was organized by N-BMR young members.

On March 29, Dr. Kihoko Tokue and her colleague from Leave a Nest, Japan kindly visited us. We thanked for a useful book that they provided to us.

Ms. Sasima (Boom) was a representative of N-BMR team to give a pitch in “Promoting I with I” event on March 6 at Pullman Bangkok Hotel G. Boom did a great talk to introduce S2-soap (a soap bar containing gold nanoparticles). As well, all N-BMR members especially graduate students put a lot of effort to support this pitching. Boom also had the same pith on Venture Day (March 22) organised by Faculty of Science, MU.

Dr. Pissuwan joined STEM workshop entitled “Nanoparticles and Environment” for high school teachers on March 4. Dr. Sujin Jiracheewanun from KMUTT (STEM Mentor) and students from N-BMR lab. including a visiting scholar student also contributed in this STEM workshop. The workshop was organised by Center of Excellence on Environmental Health and Toxicology (EHT), Chulabhorn Graduate Institute. At the end of the workshop, the distribution of a brochure of Thai & International Undergraduate Programs of Faculty of Science, Mahidol University was also done. This might lead more chance to introduce all programs to high school students.

    On Jan 26, Sowmiya gave a presentation on her work that she has done with N-BMR group. She has gained new research experience and has completed her research internship under the MOU contact between Mahidol University and K.S. Rangasamy College of Technology. We wish her the best for completing her undergraduate program Nano Science and Technology at her college in India.

    N-BMR members organized a welcome trip for Sowmiya (undergraduate student from India) on Jan 20, 2018.

    Dr. Pissuwan gave a talk entitled “Cellular activity of human T-cells encapsulated with polyelectrolytes and gold nanorods and their function on cancer destruction” in TRF-OHEC Annual Congress 2018 on Jan 11, 2018.

    The first news of the year starts with welcoming 3 Indian students who will join an activity at Faculty of Science (under the MOU with Materials Science and Nano Engineering Program) for a month. Two members (Sasima & Chanthar) from N-BMR group kindly took care these Indian students at the airport on Jan 3, 2018.

    One student Sowmiya will be at N-BMR team. Sowmiya is the third year undergraduate student from K.S. Rangasamy College of Technology, India. She is a student at B. Tech (Nano Science and Technology). Our N-BMR members are very pleased to have Sowmiya with us.
