May is the last month of internship activities in the division for One Health Laboratory Network (OHLN) interns. A lot of activities have been carried out during this last month, starting from making CRDF factsheets, creating articles, uploading Instagram social media content like the previous months, and this month we also did a lot of […]

  The field of nutrigenomics has received a lot of attention in recent years for its potential to change the way we eat and improve our health. Nutrigenomics combines nutrition research with genetics. The goal of nutrigenomics is to understand how our unique genetic makeup affects our response to dietary factors. By elucidating the complex […]

Laboratory examinations have been used by doctors for centuries to confirm disease diagnoses. Before the discovery of the microscope, laboratory examinations were conducted macroscopically, relying on the bare eyes to observe various types of specimens such as urine and feces. However, macroscopic examinations alone could not reveal microscopic changes, such as the type and form […]

The current state of global health is a matter of urgent concern, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With new and emerging health threats, it is crucial to have the proper tools that can quickly and accurately detect, diagnose, and surveil diseases. Technological advancements like biosensors might have the potential to help with […]

Working in a laboratory is inseparable from the risks that might occur. The laboratory is a place with great potential risks with various sources and types of risks. Risks that can occur include physical hazards, chemical hazards, biological material hazards, and other hazards. When viewed from the potential hazards that occur in the laboratory, it […]

Currently the field of emerging biotechnology and its application in the world and in Indonesia continues to grow rapidly, because it’s getting easier to perform and also cheaper. At the same time, issues of bioterrorism and research with the potential for dual use are also increasing. As a network that supports the establishment of integrated […]

It has been almost three months since the One Health Young Leaders Independent Campus Certified Internship program began. So many things have been done during this internship at INDOHUN, from attending a series of lectures and doing assignments to participating in internship activities in the OHLN (One Health Laboratory Network) division which are still ongoing.

Malaria is an infectious disease caused by a parasite, the protozoan genus Plasmodium, and is usually transmitted through mosquito bites, particularly from female Anopheles mosquitoes. Only female Anopheles mosquitoes can cause malaria because females can bite and suck blood to obtain nutrients and protein for their eggs, while males cannot. When a mosquito infected with […]

Various activities carried out in the laboratory, such as research, quality testing, and sample analysis can produce various kinds of waste, both chemical, biological, radioactive waste, and even a mixture of these various types of waste. Without proper handling, this waste can endanger laboratory workers, the surrounding community, and can cause environmental pollution. However, there […]

The rapid development of biotechnology, such as microbiology and parasitology, food and plant materials, organism modification, genetic modification, and chemical modification, has broad implications. Besides supporting national economic growth, industrial development, and improving public health status, advanced biotechnology can also have negative implications if the technology misuse prevention is not taken into account. The development […]
