APEC-Australia Women in Research
Dr Prattana Tanyapanyachon
Home Economy: Thailand
Host Institution: University of Queensland, School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences
Project Title: Developing the M-cell targeted polyacrylate-PADRE-GnRH-loaded liposome & studying its ability to overcome the oral immunocontraceptive vaccine development hurdles
Project Outline: The present project aims to develop the M-cell targeted polyacrylate-PADRE-GnRH-loaded liposome as the new oral immunocontraceptive vaccine. The vaccine is designed to stimulate the production of anti-GnRH (a key regulator of all reproductive events) antibody through oral administration. Therefore, the vaccine would open the door for ethical population control of feral animal species.
Reasons for applying for fellowship: As an early career researcher, this fellowship will provide me the opportunity to broaden and deepen my research by working with professional experienced researchers in Australia. This working experience will strengthen my connection with Australian institutions. This collaboration will further increase the chance of winning the research grant in Thailand which is one of the key factors to promote research career.
