[unpad.ac.id, 28/03/2019] The Universitas Padjadjaran Faculty of Medicine team won four titles at the Science Atma Cordis “Aesculapius: Atmajaya Scholar Competition and Annual Congress 2019” held by Atmajaya Catholic University Jakarta’s Faculty of Medicine, from 20-23 March.
The awards are 1st Winner of Public Health poster, 2nd winner of public education video, and first and second winner of scientific poster.
Bringing up the theme “Bye Bye Oxidant, Bye Bye Cancer!”, the FK Unpad team composed of Ryzkianty Annis Nurdin and Rafa Fathia Suhud become the 1st winner of the public health poster category. According to Rafa, the theme is intended to educate millennials on the dangers of oxidants as a cancer trigger.
“Because the theme of the event itself is about cancer and after we did some research on WHO, we decided to take a preventive step. Our education is aimed more toward millennials who have different characteristics from previous generations. This generation needs to know the cause before believing something,” told Rafa.
For that, Rafa and her team encourage the younger generation to lead a healthy lifestyle to avoid cancer. They suggest to live a healthy lifestyle such as consuming a lot of vegetables and fruits, avoiding cigarettes and pollution, as well as working out.
In achieving the award, Rafa and team hope that they can motivate other Unpad students to be confident in scientific competitions. “Not only we can seize the prize, we can also broaden our knowledge and get to new friends,” added Rafa.
Aside the public health poster category, an educative video titled “Bye Bye Oxidant, Bye Bye Cancer!” also won 2nd place in the public education video category with team members Rafa Fathia Suhud, Fadli Zaky Arsydinilhuda, and Ryzkianty Annis Nurdin.
Another FK Unpad student who secured the podium was Putri Nadhira Adinda Adriansyah who achieved 1st place in the scientific poster category. In the competition, Putri brought the theme “The Potential of Gen Therapy based on MicroRNA with Specific Triple-Helix Hydrogel Scaffold as Gen Therapy Innovation in Suppressing the Number of Global Cervical Cancer Mortality”.
In addition, Fiyandi Afianda and Mutiara Rahmah Amari achieved 2nd place in the scientific poster category with the title “Salmonella Thyphimurium engineering with Specific RGD Peptide ɑVβ3 as the Latest Therapy for Breast Cancer”.
