Achievement

Written by Published in: General

Prof Balbir Singh, FASc, who was recently elected as a Fellow of the prestigious Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM), attended the Conferment of ASM Fellowship ceremony in KL on 31st October 2015. The Fellowship certificate was presented to Prof Balbir by Datuk Seri Panglima Madius Tangau, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation. Also present on stage were the President and Vice-President of ASM, Tan Sri Dr Ahmad Tajuddin Ali and Prof Dato' Dr Asma Ismail, respectively. Prof Balbir was one of 25 who was conferred as a Fellow of ASM that day. The election of new Fellows is crucial to ensure sustainability of the ASM since the ASM taps the expertise, knowledge and network of its Fellows to provide Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) input to the government and stakeholders. Through Fellows, ASM continues to demonstrate its commitment in the international STI arena through its strategic membership of multilateral STI networks, its active role in governance of these networks, and its participation in important global scientific interactions. At the national level, a Fellow through the Academy has the opportunity to advance their ideas to push the envelope for S&T development in the country.

Prevalence and antibiotic susceptibility profile of microbial pathogens carried in the human upper respiratory tract in Sarawak

 

This project is in collaboration with the University of Southampton Malaysia Campus and University of Southampton, UK. We are looking into the prevalence of opportunistic pathogens such as but not limited to Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Respiratory tract infections are a serious health concern as the germs that cause these infections are commonly carried in the general population. High carriage rates increase the rate at which infections are passed on and may facilitate the development of life-threatening infections such as pneumonia, meningitis and sepsis. There is also a high possibility of these germs to undergo selection to become resistant to current antibiotics and vaccines.

 

The successful candidate will be based in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and is required but not limited to: recruit volunteers from the hospitals and villages in Sarawak, collect specimens, perform microbiological culture and isolation, molecular characterisation and antibiotic susceptibility profiling.

 

The candidate:

1.    shall possess a MSc and BSc in microbiology, biomedical sciences or any relevant field.

2.    excellent command of the English language.

3.    command in other languages such as Mandarin, Iban, Bidayuh etc will be an added advantage.

4.    must be a people-centered person and be willing to travel to the interior of Sarawak. Experience in volunteer recruitment and patient clerking is an added advantage.

5.    be interested in the possibility of a placement in the UK.

6.    possess own transport.

 

Funding

The successful candidate is required to register as a PhD candidate with Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and apply for a scholarship.

Title:  Genetic Polymorphism of lipid related gene-associated Familial Hypercholesterolemia in Bidayuh and  Iban ethnic groups in Sarawak

Synopsis:

Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) is one of the most common inherited disorders, with an estimated worldwide prevalence of 1 in 500 (0.2%), though the frequency is considerably higher in some populations because of a founder effect. Single nucleotide polymorphisms of certain Low Density Lipoprotein Receptor gene (LDLR), Apolipoprotein B (APOB), Pro-protein Convertase Subtilisin or Kexin type IX (PCSK9) and Upstream Transcription Factor 1 gene (USF1) have been reported to be higher in FH patients compared to normal controls in Malaysian population. Our research question is; what are the frequencies of the aforementioned lipid related gene in Bidayuh and Iban ethnic groups in Sarawak? Insofar there is no information on the relationship between FH and polymorphism of lipid related gene among Bidayuh and Iban ethnic groups in Sarawak as no previous studies have been conducted. Therefore, the present study is designed to investigate genetic polymorphisms of a few lipid related genes (genes which are found to be important for familial hypercholesterolemia in Malaysian population) in Bidayuh and Iban ethnic groups in Sarawak and to elucidate the association of the polymorphic genotypes with other clinical profiles of aforementioned ethnics groups. DNA from the peripheral blood of the study subjects will be extracted and the genes of interest will be PCR-amplified using appropriate primers and PCR conditions. All single nucleotide polymorphisms in this study will be determined by using allele specific PCR. Early detection can help significantly in better treatment outcomes for FH. Consequently, identifying predisposing genetic variations is important to our understanding of the FH process. Systematic genetic screening for mutations for those at risk of FH can be cost effective and can result in better prognosis.
