SEPANG, June 13 (Bernama) - Malaysian scientist Dr Siti Kayriyyah Mohd Hanafiah is prepared to work with the Health Ministry on the use of antibody-antigens to diagnose tuberculosis (TB) in the country.
The lecturer from Universiti Sains Malaysia who was crowned world champion in the Famelab International 2018 competition in Cheltenham, the United Kingdom recently, is convinced that if the study is successful, the disease can be detected and prevented early.
Hope my research 'To Find a Hidden Killer' which identifies TB bacteria more accurately, quickly and effectively, would be made possible with the help of biomarkers.
"We have financial constraints and provisions, that's my challenge, so I hope to work with various parties including the Health Ministry if there is an opportunity," she said.
Dr Siti Kayriyyah said this to reporters after she returned from the competition at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) here today.....
