Enhancing innovation - from Delhi to Durban via ICGEB

Prof. Zodwa Dlamini, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research, Innovation & Engagements, Professor of Molecular Genetics & Medical Scientist, Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT), University of Natal, Durban, and distinguished Member of the ICGEB Council of Scientific Advisers, organised a 2nd MUT Research, Innovation and Engagement week during 10-14 July, 2017.

Scientists from all the world over joined in this Symposium. MUT was especially interested in engaging with ICGEB in the area of ‘Environmental Sustainability’ with a focus on ‘Renewable Energy’. Two scientists from ICGEB, New Delhi, Dr. Syed Shams Yazdani and Dr. Shashi Kumar, were invited to give talk and help MUT to expand their capabilities in the research area related to Environmental Sustainability.

Dr. Yazdani gave detailed overview of ICGEB’s translational effort in the area of 2nd and 3rd generation biofuels, while Dr. Kumar presented his leads on algae based biofuels and plant based drug production. ICGEB and MUT are discussing the signing of an agreement for a long term collaboration in these fields.

The next ICGEB Council of Scientific Advisers session takes place at ICGEB New Delhi on 24-25 April 2018.
