Fatchiyah and Kassel University TeamFor the realization of WCU (World Class University) program, UB LSIH holds 4 activities, a series of international cooperation improvement. On this event, Fatchiyah, M.Kes, PhD. (Lecturer of Biology Department, who is also the Director of LSIH UB) went to Kassel University Germany to realize a partnership activity with foreign laboratory. Furthermore, Fatchiyah described that while in Kassel (July 22-31, 2010) she is in the Kassel University Faculty of Biology's Genetic Laboratory, lead by Prof Wolfgang Nellen (researcher of genetic field), which is also the main partnership between UB LSIH and Kassel University Genetic Lab.
The event in Kassel is a signing of MOU with Kassel University, by Dr. Nikolaj Fisher witnessed by Katharina Linke (International Collaboration) and representative of Genetik Lab (in the photo).
Arrangement of the program to realize the activity for the next four years has been registered to DAAD Scholarship, which is expected to be the main sponsor of the cooperation. The core of the cooperation is Bridging Curriculum between education in Germany and in Indonesia, and UB is the main partner that will accommodate other cluster universities in Indonesia, in which the program is a bridge to PhD program in Germany. Besides, there is also a supporting program such as Summer School Program for Classical and Molecular Biodiversity Summer School theme at Brawijaya University 2011, which will be submitted to DAAD Scholarship for funding support, or other scholarships. The summer school program will teach young researchers to master analytical technique in laboratory and the implementation in field.
On the program, aside from Prof Wolfgang Nellen, who will present techniques of molecular biology, and also supported by other experts from German University such as Dr, Jens Gebauer from Dept Agriculture in the Tropic, Kassel University, gene banks and by cryo-conservation by Dr.Dehmer, Gatersleben, Holger Schäfer (Heidelberg), Birgit Gmeinholzer (Bar-Coding, Giessen) for Bioinformatics and Philogenetic, and some other experts who will gives materials and analytical technique in summer school program next year.
