HEC approves research centre for UHS Lahore

ISLAMABAD, May 23(Daily Times): The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has approved a project for the establishment of an endocrinology and reproductive sciences research centre at the University of Health Sciences (UHS), Lahore.

The decision was taken at the commission's Departmental Development Working Party. The project is expected to strengthen the base of biomedical research in the country by offering postgraduate research programmes leading to PhD degrees for them. The centre will also enhance research linkages with institutions conducting similar research in the country.

The centre will encourage research in Diabetes Type 2 cases during childhood and adolescence in the local population and development of biomarkers for early detection of the disease. Studies on thyroidal function shall also be carried out in relation to nutrition and abnormal growth.

The centre will attract scientists and physicians for short-term training in endocrine and reproductive techniques of two to six weeks and invite foreign and local experts for lectures in research advisory capacity for one to four weeks. These initiatives will be sponsored jointly by the centre and the Department of Medical Education, UHS. The university has already established postgraduate departments of anatomy, biochemistry, microbiology and immunology, pathology, physiology and cell biology, medical education and allied health sciences offering PhD, MPhil and MSc level degrees.
