Two students, Lutfil Hadi Rafli B Nizam and Yong E-Rong, were presented with the Certificate of Merit for their exceptional Poster Presentations. Lutfil presented his internship work conducted at ACM Biolabs, focusing on RNA drug development. His research involved a comprehensive evaluation of polymer-based drug delivery systems compared to traditional lipid-based counterparts. E-Rong's project, on the other hand, aimed to establish an in-house assay for detecting lysozyme activity in biological samples. 


Another student, Loh Mei Zhen also shared insights into her Final Year Project, which focused on developing a vaccine to prevent viral infections in Seabass.

Overall, the symposium provided a valuable opportunity for students to showcase their research efforts and contribute to the advancement of science and technology. It fostered collaboration and inspired innovation among budding scientists, laying the foundation for future breakthroughs in the field.
