Human Resources Development
The Bioresources Technology Unit recognizes the importance of personnel development when it comes to the transformation of young scientists into professional researchers who are able to achieve their career goals. To this end, the unit has introduced a mentoring system for new scientists, and periodically seeks assistance from renowned professors from universities to provide valuable suggestions for the researchers.
The Bioresources Technology Unit also offers research training for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels to both local and foreign institutions. The unit currently has 50 undergraduate and 40 graduate students training each year. Most of the Master and Doctoral students receive scholarships supported by the Royal Golden Jubilee Program [Thailand Research Fund (TRF)], the Thai Graduate Institute of Science and Technology (TGIST) research fund and Biodiversity Research
and Training Program (BRT).
