IMO News Service

Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a Trilateral Research Collaboration Project involving Universities of Bristol (UK), Ohio State University, USA and the Aligarh Muslim University.

AMU Registrar Prof. V. K. Abdul Jaleel signed the proposal on behalf of the University. Prof. Nick Brooker, University of Bristol (UK), Prof. Wasi Haider, Chairman, Department of Physics and Prof. Alim Husain Naqvi, Centre of Excellence in Material Science (Nanomaterial), AMU were present on this occasion.

A pilot project will be launched under the tri-lateral research and education partnership to establish a STEM Research and Education Centre at Aligarh as a model for a larger initiative involving universities in UK, USA and India. The project would be supported by IndoGenius, an education consultancy, which is developing the intervarsity approach to supporting Indian higher education and research.

Two research projects would be initiated on X-ray Nano-Biotechnology to be carried out with the collaboration of Prof. Anil Pradhan and Prof. Sultana Nahar of Ohio State University and Prof. Alim Husain Naqvi of AMU and Prof. Mervyn Miles of Bristol. It is based on the application of a novel methodology for the cancer therapy leading to the development and use of a monochromatic X-ray device coupled with suitable nanomaterial for radio-sensitization of cancerous tumors.

The AMU Department of Physics and the Faculty of Science has been earmarked approximately US $20,000 by Dr. Anil Pradhan and Dr. Sultana Nahar from Ohio State University to support the cost of local education and research training of Indian students.
The Department of Physics, Department of Applied Physics, department of Electronics Engineering and Department of Computer Engineering will be involved as partners in the ambitious project.

The Ohio Supercomputer Centre in Columbus, Ohio will provide computational facilities on state-of-the-art massively parallel platforms at no cost. Moreover, the support will continue even after the students return to India, as STEM faculty at Indian universities to work on long-term collaborative research projects.
