PU contributing to research and development: governor
Lahore, March 26, 2008: Governor Lt-Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool said that the Punjab University (PU) is continuously contributing to research and development.

According to a press release issued by PU on Tuesday, while speaking at the launching ceremony of the four-day Bio-Forum 2008 organised by the PU Centre of Excellence in Molecular Biology (CEMB), he said that the industrialists must look at the steps taken by the varsities for the country's development.

Vice Chancellor (VC) Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran, former PU VC Khairat Ibn-e-Risa, CEMB Director Dr Sheikh Riaz-ud-Din, Dr Sajida and over 232 biologists, researchers and industrialists from across the country were present on the occasion. The governor said, "We must realise that we are living in an age of industrial competition and we will only succeed if we are able to produce low cost, standardised products". He said that in order to achieve development in the field of biotechnology, a crop of trained manpower was needed and there should be control over the quality and price of new products.

He said that the forensic lab and DNA sequencing facilities available at the PU CEMB is accessible to the entire country. He said that these labs and other departments of the university must generate income through commercialisation and start practical programmes.

The VC said that the university had been the first in every new initiative taken in scientific education and research. He also said that PU was the first university that had established a definitive programme for molecular biology teaching and research.

CEMB Director Dr Riaz-ud-Din gave a comprehensive briefing about the Bio-Forum and said that they had received several applications for participation. Later, he gave a presentation on how to develop the university-industry linkage. Daily Times
