Fei Yam, a PhD student from the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences (PPSF) produced a unique innovation - the most sensitive measuring device for measuring a disease that haunts many societies around the world.
Fei Yam received a $500 cash prize and Graduate Travel Award worth $300 after he presented the findings in conjunction with the 7th Federation of Asian and Oceanian physiological Societies Congress.
Fei Yam said he did not expect to win alongside over 400 researchers from countries such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China and others.
But, he said, innovations in the form of computer software capable of reading and interpreting data related to arthritis managed to steal the focus, thus proving highly relevant research at the international level.
"This win gives me enthusiasm to continue my commitment to continue the study until the technology has been commercialized,'' he said.
He said the research has also been published in major journals and has the attention of many, especially those directly involved in medical education and health.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
