About Ms. Dikelle Lekamalage Nushka Lahiri Ubhayawardana...

Nushka Ubhayawardana is a B.Sc. (Special) Human Biology (Hons) graduate from Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka. Right after my first degree, I completed my postgraduate degree (M.Phil) at the same university in 2016.  My M. Phil research project was on Helicobacter pylori and it’s resistance to clarithromycin. For the first time in Sri Lanka, this study presents data about clarithromycin resistance in H. pylori by genotypic methods. I am interested on this topic and it gave me many ideas for my future research.  Further I would like to study about this carcinogenic bacterium with new objectives.
