03 new NAFOSTED projects from USTH

30/11/2016

   According to Decison 195/QĐ-HĐQL- NAFOSTED dated November 24th, 2016 by Director of National Foundation of Science and Technology Development (NAFOSTED), there are 210 projects that will be financially supported by NAFOSTED in 2016. So cheerfully, our beloved USTH contributes up to 3 projects to the list. A huge congratulation to 3 brand-new NAFOSTED Principal Investigators:

1. Dr. To Thi Mai Huong – Department of Biology, Pharmacology, Medicine and Agriculture
 
Mai Huong
 ​​
  Dr. Huong is a lecturer- researcher at department of BPMA Department. She is leader of a NAFOSTED project entitled “Discovering some significant QTLs linked to the Jasmonic Acid sensitivity using Genome-Wide  Association Studies (GWAS) approach to improve stress tolerance of rice”. 

2. Dr. Nguyen Van Quynh – Department of Advanced Material Sciences and Nanotechnology
 
Quynh

 Dr Quynh will lead the Project “Elaboration of hybrid immunosensor based on dual channel tranduction mechanisms: electrochemical and surface plasmon resonance detection for determining organic pollutants in waters”.  Dr. Quynh is working as a lecturer-researcher in Electrochemical Bioanalytical Microsystem (EBM) group of Advanced Material Science and Nanotechnology Department. 

3. Dr. Nguyen Thi Tuyet Mai – Department of Advanced Material Sciences and Nanotechnology
 
Dr NGUYEN TUYET MAI

 
   Based on the plasmonic phenomenon of gold nanoparticles as an assisted agent for Hydrogen revolution, Dr Mai is leader of the NAFOSTED project entitled “Novel hybrid nanomaterials based on gold nanoparticles and metal sulfides for plasmon-induced photocatalytic H2 generation ».  Dr. Mai is now co-principal investigator of NanoEngineering and NanoScience (NENS) group of Advanced Material Science and Nanotechnology Department. 

  Being a Principal Investigator of a NAFOSTED Project is a great challenge but also an honor mission. USTH acknowledges your contribution and wishes you a great success in your project and future works.
