I've just received an email from back home ; regarding the 2012 opening for ERGS - A Research Grant with such promising incentives for aspiring researches by MOHE.
Total crapness and a definite resource money for cronies of the MOHE Select committee.Yup, the Ministry of Higher Education with a Grant scheme kononnya MACAM BAGUS but total RUBBISH BY CONTENT!
I had a bitter experience last year when enthusiasticly I applies for it. It may be an ambitious study but it is doable with all the resources I had in Sungai Buloh Hospital. I had the support of the faculty, the hospital and everyone was looking forward for it to be granted.It was almost impossible to be rejected based on the idea.

Obviously, I was not successful. But the answer I received from the email was, nak baca tak email tu :

"We regret to inform that your proposal entitled: The Diagnostic and Prognostic Utilisation of S_1000B, Neuron Specific Enolase (NSE), Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) and Interleukin-6 (IL-6) As Biomarkers for Neuroprotection Post Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) has not been approved for ERGS 2011 application. Please find the attached comments for your reference.

So many studies already performed in this conversational area. The information will not be useful for the major of patient."

Maaakkk aaiii.. I cant believe reading the so UNPROFESSIONAL COMMENT! Dahlah broken English nak mampus and this was the reply from MOHE? I actually demanded on reasons why I was rejected but to no avail.. there was no answer. Kepala hotak dia?
MAybe I can't accept rejection or too grandiose with my own ideas and ability? Perhaps... 

but starting January 2012, There is a study currently conducted in Royal Perth Hospital called the MOBY study. And guess what? The methodology and outcome.. VERY SIMILAR TO  MY PROPOSAL...

Camana Malaysia? What can I say..
