Universitas Airlangga‘s doctoral student in Medical Science, Nanda Yuli Rahmawati, and team supervised by the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine (FK), Prof. Budi Santoso have won three awards at the International Joint Conference on Medical Engineering, Science, and Technology (iMEDiST).
The three awards were Best Presenter on Medical Science Track, Best Paper on Medical Science Track, and Best of The Best or being the best of all competition categories.
In the competition held on June 29-30, Nanda and the team discussed endometriosis. Endometriosis is a gynaecological disease in women that can cause reduced fertility.
Endometriosis causes an attachment to the reproductive organs and produces a toxic fluid that can thwart the process of fertilization and pregnancy. Through this research, the student from Tuban hoped that her research could continue and be developed as a diagnostic tool to detect the severity of endometriosis.
