She is the second Vietnamese female scientist to receive the grant.

Hiep is a lecturer of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Orientation in the Biomedical Engineering Department of the International University of Vietnam National Universities - Ho Chi Minh City.

Her work focuses on biomaterials such as bio-glue, bio-tape and needleless suturing for wound repair that can be used by patients at home.

Her most recent project involves the development of a gel that is mainly formed by cross-linking hyaluronic acid (which contributes significantly to cell proliferation and migration) and chitosan (useful in tissue regeneration). It can carry other ingredients such as silver and curcumin nano-particles for different uses.

Her team is currently testing the gel to maximise safety and performance. The goal is a product that can be applied promptly on wounds, helps eliminate bacteria and promotes rapid tissue regeneration. When applied, the gel will form a membrane to stop bleeding, absorb liquid from the wound and prevent infection from microorganisms.

With the award, Hiep said her goal is to bring biomaterials and medicines originating in Vietnam to the world. She has just launched a start-up to develop commercially viable biomaterials and is committed to developing research capacity in Vietnam.

On the occasion, she encouraged Vietnamese female scientists to continue their passion for research, contributing more for the country.

Every year, 15 outstanding young researchers are identified as the future of science among the winners of the 275 Fellowships awarded worldwide.

These rising talents receive an additional grant, giving them greater visibility among the international scientific community.

The awards were granted by the For Women in Science Programme, launched by the L’Oreal Group and UNESCO in 1998.

The L`Oreal-UNESCO partnership is a long-term commitment to recognising women in science and supporting scientific vocations.

The Women in Science has grown into a global programme that includes international, regional and national fellowships and an international network of more than 2,000 women in more than 100 countries.
