Dr. Jumreang Tummatorn has received a fellowship from L’Oréal Thailand’s For Women in Science 2019

Dr. Jumreang Tummatorn, a lecturer in the Chemical Sciences Program was awarded the fellowship L’Oréal Thailand’s For Women in Science 2019 from L’Oréal Paris Thailand on Friday, October 4, 2019. The L’Oréal Thailand’s For Women in Science fellowship aims to support and improve the representation of women working in scientific fields. In Thailand, the fellowships are given to Thai female scientists who conduct outstanding researches in 2 areas which are Life-Sciences,and Physical science. The fellowships are awarded to female researchers whose research work benefits communities, society, the environment and the country. Every year, applications will be carefully considered by a panel of science experts in Thailand who strenuously examine the applications in search for outstanding female researchers. For Dr. Jumreang Tummatorn, she receives the fellowship in physical science for her research titled “The synthesis of bioactive compounds and evaluation of their anticancer and antimalarial activities” This research could potentially lead to a breakthrough in new therapeutic agents for curing diseases and may eventually pave the way to sustainable development in drug discovery research in Thailand.
