Malaysia memang boleh lah...

I've just read about a Malaysian NASA scientist - Dr Wan Nardatul Amani who won NASA's Thora Halstead Young Scientist Award for her achievement.

An inspiration for all Malaysians.^_^

This is the article:

An example of how the two fields are merging was the selection of Amani Wan Salim of Purdue University to receive the Thora Halstead Young Investigator award for her work on the Cell-Electrophysiology Lab-on-a-chip, an interdisciplinary project joining biology and fluid physics.

wow!!

interesting quote from the article,

----------
"The life sciences also offered new challenges. As on Earth, there is a strong drive to develop non-invasive diagnostic techniques, ways to sample or measure without going inside the patient. New methods of measuring blood sugar during bed rest were discussed, along with how to measure fluid pressures inside the brain without actually getting inside someone's head.

An example of how the two fields are merging was the selection of Amani Wan Salim of Purdue University to receive the Thora Halstead Young Investigator award for her work on the Cell-Electrophysiology Lab-on-a-chip, an interdisciplinary project joining biology and fluid physics.

With this aspect of the space journey just beginning, more results -- and questions -- are expected at the next conference, Nov. 3–8, 2013, in Orlando, Fla.

diagnosing health without any physical insertion or contact just by using some sort of magnetic gravitational device or gadget....wow! it took a rocket science to understand this...hehehe!

Amani Wan Salim, i salute you...

We are proud to see long list of achievers in our country.

But most important is, don't forget about our own achievement in life.
