YaBiNaPA wins several prices at the SCSYR Conference in Douala!

"Scientific week of professionalization coupled with the 4th Edition of Scientific Conference of PhD Students and Young Researchers of state Universities/Private institutes of Higher Education 2019 (SCSYR)" is a three days conference organized by the Faculty of Science of the University of Douala on June 11th-13th, 2019. The objective of the seminar was to look into current issues of students' participation in Higher Education Governance, from institutional to national and international levels, outlining the adaptation of their training with needs of enterprises in order to overcome the current problems and obstacles faced by students after graduation. The conference thus aimed at looking for examples of good practice solutions and proposing a way forward as well as to foster discussion and strengthen connections between experts and young scientists from national and private universities, as well as from industry. The three-day conference comprises plenary and posters sessions. Booth were provided to participants particularly research groups or Graduates Schools for exposition of their products and research outcomes. This was a great opportunity to meet people from private sectors and companies for further collaboration on the valorization and conservation of our bio-resources. The Graduate School was represented by a delegation of 20 participants (students, coordinators and guest lecturers) with 10 posters and a booth to present antibacterial liquid soap, antifungal soap, antifungal cream and anti-inflammatory balm formulated by our PhD students. YaBiNaPA received the prize for the best poster presentation and booth at the conference, sponsored by the company Prometal. YaBiNaPA was also awarded a price in recognition of the best project on the valorization of Cameroonian medicinal plants.
