KUANTAN, 14 May - UniKL MESTECH undergraduate, Siti Munirah Aminah Bt. Mohd Razali won first place for Best Poster Presentation in the Physiology, Pharmacology & Toxicology category at the 8th Malaysian Symposium of Biomedical Sciences (MySymBios) in UIA Kuantan. The annual symposium is the largest gathering of Biomedical Science students and saw participation from various universities in Malaysia which include UniKL, UIA, UKM, USM, UM, UTAR, IMU and Newcastle University, Malaysia among others.
Siti Munirah received the Best Poster Presentation award
Despite sending the smallest delegate of 7 student participants, UniKL found itself in the winning circle with the project entitled "Comparison of ECG and Hematological Parameters between Active and Passive Smokers", a project supervised by Mr. Muhammad Taufiq Badaruddin. It's a one of a kind programme which provides a platform for undergraduate students to hone and showcase their presentation skills and share their research activities. More importantly, the symposium would allow future collaborations and networking with other universities, future graduates and potential employers.
