Hospital Sibu Top 5 Recruiter Globally for Respire RSV Study

Dr. Toh Teck Hock and his clinical research team has set another milestone in Hospital Sibu, Sarawak for the Respire RSV study recently as they are the world’s top 5 recruiter in the Respire RSV study.

“Although Sibu has a number of queries (which is normal), but our Study Coordinators (SC) were fast to resolve those queries. To me it shows the “Quality” work our SC has done (Of course, the Co-I has to be good too)” – Dr Toh Teck Hock, Head of Clinical Research Centre, Hospital Sibu.

We would like to congratulate Dr. Toh and his team in Hospital Sibu for the great achievement!

Calling Technologies Presenters – Semiconductors in Life Sciences Symposium 2018

Semiconductors in Life Sciences Symposium Penang, 18th September 2018

Hosted by SilTerra Malaysia, Supported by imec

The convergence of micro-electronics and life sciences is poised to take the next leap of advancement.

Ever since the retail introduction of glucometers and glucose strips, the lives of millions of diabetic sufferers changed dramatically. This was enabled because an accurate electrical signal could be generated from blood sugar by the presence of glucose oxidase in the strip. Other point-of-care applications have since emerged and expanded beyond this approach.

The recognition that micro-electronics and semiconductor processing can revolutionize healthcare has led renowned research institutes around the world like imec with headquarters in Belgium, Europe to pursue this field. SilTerra has been collaborating with imec to commercialise the next generation micro-chip applications like photonics-based DNA sequencing chips, semiconductor-based ultrasonics transducers, micro-fluidics based lab-on-a-chip systems and others.

SilTerra, supported by imec, is organising a technology symposium that will bring together thought leaders and eminent researchers to share and collaborate in accelerating this field of semiconductors in life sciences. We invite technologists and thought leaders from:

Research Institutes working on semiconductor-based life sciences applications that are on the verge of commercialisation, and
Companies who have techniques and methods for supporting these technologies to
Submit presentation proposals1 for sharing with other eminent persons at this event.

We have invited speakers from Europe, Asia and USA to share the latest in their respective areas – in addition to imec, we expect to include companies such as Pacific Biosciences, MEMS Journal, AmKor Technology, Korea Electronics Technology Institute, and others.
