UNIVERSITI Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) PhD graduate Dr Gary Low Kim Kuan’s (pic) research paper is the “Top Downloaded Paper” for 2018-2019.
The recognition by Tropical Medicine International Health, the official journal of the Federation of European Societies, was for his paper titled “Diagnostic accuracy and predictive value in differentiating the severity of dengue infection”.
Low, from the institution’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, received a congratulatory certificate from Wiley, a well-known international publisher which was established in 1807.
His research paper reviewed the diagnostic test accuracy and predictive value of statistical models in differentiating the severity of dengue infection.
The paper was co-authored by Jackob Kagize, Katherine J. Faull and Aizad Azahar.
Low was a senior lecturer at UTAR from 2013 to 2018, where he led a research group called “STRIPED Study Group” which focused on dengue infection.
They were supported by the Multidisciplinary UTAR Strategic Research Funding Scheme (UTARSRF) from 2014 to 2018.
The output of the grant resulted in numerous publications and the work has continued even after Low moved to Torrens University Australia last year.
