It’s not okay for your gum to bleed

Pay attention to the signals your body is telling you. It is not okay to have gum bleeding every now and then. Make that visit to the dentist, so they will examine you and provide the necessary treatment to control your gum bleeding problem.

Every nation has their own strength and limitations from socio-economic and geo-political background. Like in any other sectors, advancing strategies for universities should then also be based on their own strength rather than following what others are doing elsewhere.


Universiti Malaya’s Institute of Ocean and Earth Sciences (IOES) was announced as part of 15 global projects related to seaweed research, receiving a total of €700,000 in research funding from the Safe Seaweed Coalition.

The Institute will be responsible for “creating a global taxonomic framework for the carrageenan industry to benefit biobanking, breeding, and quality control.”

This call was the first round of multiple calls for proposals planned over three years to distribute £3 million toward research supporting seaweed safety and sustainability. The coalition and its steering committee invite applicants with diverse research and product interests to apply for grants in future calls.

The coalition is coordinated by the CNRS with the help of strategic and funding partner Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the support of United Nations Global Compact. For more information, visit www.safeseaweedcoalition.org.
