5 research abstracts accepted as poster presentation at the 6th ICPAPS & the 3rd ASEAN Pharmnet 2019 in Indonesia

Aiming to facilitate the experts meeting and sharing the knowledge among the pharmacists, the Faculty of Pharmacy, Gadjah Mada University will hold the 6th International Conference on Pharmacy and Advanced Pharmaceutical Sciences (ICPAPS 2019). The ICPAPS 2019 is themed “Exploring the Local Wisdom for Advanced Pharmacy Education and Research” and organized in collaboration with the 3rd International Conference on Pharmacy Education and Research Network of ASEAN (ASEAN PharmNET 2019) which also occurs every 2 years.

The Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Puthisastra (UP), has encouraged students to attend this important conference. Finally, 5 research abstracts of 12 pharmacy students (from foundation year to year III) were accepted as poster presentation. Interestingly, two among the 5 abstracts were conducted by foundation year pharmacy students who just early started their bachelor of pharmacy. They are so excited and looking forward to this fantastic journey.

Their topics of research are as follows:
1. Traditional Therapeutic Model Applied by Folk Healers in Koh Kong Province, Cambodia: A Qualitative Study
2. Phytochemical and Thin Layer Chromatography Analyses of Methanolic Leaf Extract of Citrus medica L. (Reaksaa) Native to Cambodia
3. Phytochemical and Thin Layer Chromatography Analyses of Methanolic Root Extract of Combretum trifoliatum Vent. (Voa Troahs) Originated in Cambodia
4. Marine Phytochemical and Thin Layer Chromatography Analyses of DifferentTissues of Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda Latreille (Horseshoe Crab) Originated in Cambodia

We hope that our students will have a great time in Yogyarkarta meeting with other researchers, academia, students, practioners in health institutions and industries, policymakers, and communities from all over the world to exchange and share one another experience and research results in different aspects related to pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences.
