UP Pharmacy Faculties Joined International Webinar

Webinars can serve as a very useful tool to train staff and faculties, by taking advantage of technology advancements. Despite the fact that webinars are virtual, when set up properly they can be more interactive and engaging than face-to- face meetings.

On November 20, 2020, pharmacy faculties had attended a very useful International Webinar on Infectious Diseases Preparedness: a special focus on COVID-19 Challenges and Opportunities. Speakers were different from countries such as Portugal, Thailand, India, Malaysia etc.

“It is a great International Webinar where I can meet nearly all of my colleagues from World Union on Herbal Drug Discovery to share with each other on our preparedness to address emerging infectious diseases based on the challenges and opportunities that we have had so far during the COVID-19 pandemic. The focus is on drug discovery for COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. Moreover, we also talk about any possibilities to work together to discover antivirals from our exiting nature, especially plants. Together, we can go as far as we can.” said Dr. Chea Sin, Dean of Pharmacy, University of Puthisastra.
