Vaccines and vitamin D: Measuring immune response
Researchers in Sarawak, Malaysia, measured the immunity responses of people who received different COVID-19 vaccines.
The rapid international effort to develop and deploy vaccinations against the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been a saving grace of the pandemic. But it’s not over yet. Scientists now need to understand in detail how our immune systems respond to the different vaccines over time to continue to tweak them and improve their efficacy as the virus changes.
UNIMAS Innovation welcomed a visit by Mr Thomas Hii and Mr Patrick Song from Kenyalang Farming Services Sdn Bhd, a local company that specialises on aquaculture and fisheries.
It was an engaging discussion on IoT and aquaculture and we look forward to a partnership with new industry player i.e., Kenyalang Farming Services Sdn Bhd. We hope this will result in industry grants and possible commercialisation. Food security is one of the important agenda of Sarawak Government.
In presence during the meeting were YBhg Prof Wan Hashim, AP Dr Samsur Mohamad, AP Dr Kartinah Zen, Prof Dr Wang Yin Chai, AP Dr Sim Siong Fong, and researchers from faculties.
