Collaborative research in Nanotechnology and Ophthalmology

Saturday the 23rd of July marked a red letter day for research in Nanotechnology and Opthalmology. Deliberations and discussions on the prospect and scope of doing joint research in these areas between the Sankara Nethralaya and the University of Missouri which began with the honouring of Chairman Emeritus Dr SS Badrinath with a Doctor of Science award by the Mizzou University, its highest academic tribute for his role as a leader and exemplary citizen in year 2010, culminated in the signing of an MoU between the two research institutions in these areas of mutual interest. The purpose of the MoU is to create a vibrant environment conducive for the exchange of research findings, conducting bilateral research, collaborative learning especially in the fields of Nano biotechnology and ophthalmology.

The MoU was signed by Dr S.Bhaskaran, Chairman, Sankara Nethralaya, Dr H.N Madhavan, President, Vision Research Foundation and Dr Ronnie George, Director Research, Medical Research Foundation on behalf of Vision Research Foundation and Professor Robert Churchill, Dean, University of Missouri on behalf of the University of Missouri, in the presence of the Chief Guest Ms Michelle Zhra, the US Vice Consul

Under the provisions of the MoU the Vision Research Foundation and the University of Missouri will commit themselves to common goals of seeking knowledge and applying it to the improvement of human conditions, promote advanced research and formal training in Nano medicine focused on ophthalmic care, cancer therapy/imaging related debilitating human conditions, encourage exchange of scientists for joint teaching, training programs, host national and international conferences in the areas of nanotechnology, Nano medicine and other mutually beneficial disciplines to be defined in the future

The Professor S.Venkateshwaran Endowment Fund named in honour of one of the greatest academicians of our times, who could be credited for making the BITS, Pilani where he served as Dean -Education, Development and Vision, as a world class institution was set up to facilitate the exchange of research scholars and scientists between the two institutions. The signing of the MoU was followed by a ‘Symposium on applications of Nanotechnology in Health Care’ addressed by eminent speakers from different areas of expertise on their given area of specialization.
