          The National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) organized the annual "Inventor Day" 2010 and presented the awards from the NRC: Outstanding Researcher Awards, Research Awards, and Thesis Awards for the year 2009 and the Invention Award of 2010 at Hall 9, Impact Muang Thong Thani Exhibition Center and Convention Hall, Nonthaburi Province, on 2 February 2010.

         Khunying Dr. Kalaya Sophonpanich, Minister of Science and Technology, presided over the ceremony and Professor Dr. Thira Sutabutra, Chairman of the Executive Board of the National Research Council, presented the award certificates. On this occasion, Assistant Professor Dr. Pongrama Ramasoota, DVM, Deputy Dean for Research and Innovation, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, and the research team consisted of Assistant Professor Dr. Porntippa Lekcharoensuk, DVM, Associate Professor Dr. Pathana Ekapho, Assistant Professor Thareerat Kalambaheti, Assistant Professor Dr. Narin Upakornkarinth, DVM, Assistant Professor Dr. Narisorn Na-ngam, DVM, Rongdetch Tangtrakarnpong, DVM, and Miss Prannamthip Pitaksajjakul, received a "Good" level award for the research titled "Production of Antigens and Antibodies Specific to Tropical Diseases by Protein Expression on Phage Surface". The mentioned research would give Thai researchers the necessary knowledge base to domestically produce diagnostic kits, allowing physicians to diagnose diseases quickly and make timely choices for treatment and reduce the expense of importing diagnostic reagents by billions of bahts in the future.

         Dr. Pongrama said that "For this diagnostic kit that the research team has developed, it would take only around 30 minutes to find out which strain of type-A influenza infects the subjects by using discharges such as snot, feces, urine, saliva from animals or humans suspected of being infected with the virus. The discharge would be mixed with the solutions in the instructed ratio, then the mixture would be dropped on the sample well, wait for the result, and then the infected human or animal would be able to receive treatment on time."
