By Development Communication Section

JSPS or the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science has given a grant to AQD researcher  Ms. Shelah Mae Buen-Ursua to study seahorse genetics at Hokkaido University, Japan. Specifically, Ms. Ursua worked on “Genetic studies of seahorses for stock enhancement: species identification and population structure” from 7 October to 17 November under the supervision of Prof. Katsutoshi Arai.

The JSPS grant is under its RONPAKU (dissertation or PhD) program which provides tutorial and financial support to young researchers in Asia and Africa who wish to obtain their doctorate degree from Japanese universities by submitting a dissertation without going through a doctorate course.
