KARACHI: Academia and Industry collaboration for Research projects should always be acknowledged, welcomed and promoted. There are major limitations for many health care physicians to actively engage and publish large amount of quality data which is available with them in all health care facilities. We should make it a priority to publish evidence and involve in research activities. This was stated by Prof. Jameel Ahmed, Professor of Medicine at Baqai Medical University during MoU signing ceremony of PharmEvo Research Excellence Program.

He further requested that every few months there should be regular research trainings at our institute both for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Collaboration between the pharmaceutical trade and industry and the academicians in medical institutions can go a long way in promoting the research culture and increasing Pakistan’s contributions to world medical literature, he added.


PharmEvo recently signed an MOU with Department of Medicine at Baqai Medical
University as a part of its Research Excellence Program. Picture taken on this

Dr. Masood Jawaid, Director Medical Affairs PharmEvo speaking on this occasion highlighted some important features of the program. This longitudinal program, he stated, will be working jointly with the faculty members for multiple research projects from the departmental data with just in time support. To build a healthier research based culture and motivate all team members, gamification elements are also built in the project. Main outcome is the number of publication produced after initiation of the program.

Dr. Musarrat Riaz, Associate Professor in the Dept. of Medicine at BMU who was also present on this occasion also appreciated the PharmEvo efforts to promote innovative and problem solving initiatives which definitely support to build the healthier society.
