Turning Passion in Enzymes into Innovations

Professor Pimchai Chaiyen

(Mahidol University & Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology)

Welcome to the world of “Enzyme Engineering” and synthetic biology. Modifying enzymes can open up a world of innovation; from fundamental research to novel inventions and applications that benefit society and industry. Join us to discover how a small enzyme can mean big business.

Invasive species, New Guinea Flatworm and Its Potential Role of Eosinophilic Meningoencephalitis in Thailand

Dr Kittipong Chaisiri (Department of Helminthology, Mahidol University)

The invasive New Guinea flatworm (Platydermus manokwari) is recently reported for the first time in Thailand. With its bizarre biology and capacity to harbour infective stage larvae of lungworm (Angiostrongylus), a nematode causing eosinophilic meningoencephalitis in humans, this flatworm potentially plays an important role in epidemiology of the disease in Thailand.

Hidden Messages behind Beautiful Biological Structures    

Dr Puey Ounjai

(Center of Nanoimaging & Department of Biology, Mahidol University)

Have you ever wondered how things happen in nature? Why do sperm move the way they do or what is the secret mechanism behind virus infection? In this talk, we will explore the power of multiscale imaging and the secret messages hidden inside the images.
