SELS TO RECEIVE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FROM INDUSTRY FOR RESEARCH CAPACITY BUILDING.
To assist in our ongoing efforts to enhance research capacity in SELS, a reputed pharmaceutical company, Radiant Pharmaceuticals Ltd., has offered to provide a financial support of Tk 30,00000/- ( Tk Thirty Lacs) to conduct a capacity building program. Under this program, a series of lectures and hands-on training in research methodologies, scientific writing, as well as ethical and bio-safety guidelines will be offered to deserving students. In addition short-term pilot projects will be undertaken which will provide preliminary data for developing larger research projects. A successful implementation of this program will predictably contribute to increase students’ involvement in research, research-active faculty members, improve laboratories, and contribute to enhance overall teaching and research capacity in SELS. This program will also be an excellent example of productive collaboration between academia and industry in Bangladesh. The Chairman of the Radiant Group Mr. Nasser Shahrear Zahedee has also expressed his willingness to enter into long-term collaboration with SELS and IUB.
