FMIPA UGM, in collaboration with ASEAN Nagoya Club (ANC) Japan, organized a cooperation program through the Launching Japan Career Center event on Wednesday, Mar 27th, 2024, at the Auditorium of FMIPA UGM. This collaboration aims to strengthen partnerships in the field of education, whether for research or student and faculty careers.

Prof. Dr. Eng. Kuwat Triyana, M.Sc., the Dean of FMIPA UGM, welcomed the presence and reinforcement of the cooperation while delivering a welcoming speech. Subsequently, the event continued with the signing of the cooperation agreement while watching a video tour of the Japan Career Center located within the FMIPA UGM premises.

In this regard, Prof. Drs. Roto, M.Eng. Ph.D., as a lecturer and vice dean of education at FMIPA UGM, facilitated discussions related to the cooperation program being carried out.

“Our students need to acquire foreign language conversation competencies. One of them is proficiency in the Japanese language for scholarships, work, and research,” said Prof. Roto.

Indra Kesuma Nasution, Ph.D., as the advisor of ANC Japan, presented the programs offered through the Japan Career Center.

“We are very open to students and faculty who want to consult about further studies and careers in Japan. In addition, we will provide Japanese language training,” said Indra.

Through this collaboration, FMIPA UGM also supports SDGs points 4 and 9 regarding quality education and innovation by providing access to Japanese language soft skill training that can support scholarship and career searches. Furthermore, this collaboration encourages an increase in the number of researchers in the field of science and technology to conduct research or advanced studies. FMIPA UGM also welcomes ANC Japan in partnership to achieve the goal of increasing the number of researchers by SDGs point 17.

Department of Physics FMIPA UGM Held Seminar on Medical Physics: Nanophotosensitizer with Natural Bioreductants to Increase the Efficacy of Antibacterial Effects

The Physics Department of FMIPA UGM held a seminar titled “Nanophotosensitizer with Natural Bioreductants to Increase the Efficacy of Antibacterial Effects” on Wednesday, Mar 27th 2024, virtually. The speaker at this event was Prof. Dr. Suryani Dyah Astuti, M.Sc., a researcher and lecturer from Universitas Airlangga. This seminar was held with the hope of expanding knowledge increasing public interest in medical physics and providing information about downstream products beneficial for the community. Seminar participants came not only from lecturers, researchers, and students but also from the general public.

“One of the serious challenges in the field of health is the increasing antibiotic resistance by pathogenic microorganisms causing infections. Resistant organisms can withstand the effects of antimicrobial drugs such as antibiotics, antivirals, and others. As a result, the use of standard treatments becomes ineffective in combating infections. Photodynamic inactivation therapy (PDI) offers an alternative route utilizing silver nanoparticles synthesized from grape seeds as nano photosensitizers that enhance antibacterial efficacy. PDI method is a non-invasive, non-ionizing photon-based method that is safe and effective in killing infection-causing microbes,” said Prof. Suryani.

The material presented was an introduction to research results beneficial to the community, such as in the medical sector. For example, the utilization of local raw materials from local plant extracts as reductants for green synthesis of nanoparticles that are safe and have antibacterial properties by the activities contained in plants.

“How do we commercialize research products and establish partnerships to support the commercialization process?” asked one of the participants. Then, Prof. Suryani explained the commercialization scheme with partners. “The way is to share with supportive partners. Research nowadays tends to be commercialized. So, we need to optimize production first so that the prototype is mature for large-scale production. Then, conduct test markets such as product introduction. It can be done by providing the product for trial. Next, inquire about the results and then contact the partner. So, start optimizing for industrial scale. It is essential for us to have a team in collaboration, for example, involving doctors or other professions,” said Prof. Suryani.

The presentation of research product results from medical physics reflects SDG number 3, Good Health and Well-being, to the community to be utilized in daily life, especially in the field of health such as affordable drugs and biomedical treatment. In addition, the presentation of the technical flow of research product commercialization encourages lecturers and researchers to collaborate with industries for the commercialization of research results, thus reflecting SDG number 9, Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure.
