Heartfelt congratulations go to our NTD Network HUB lead for Pakistan, Prof. Dr. M. Iqbal Choudhary, who is today being awarded the 2021 winner of the Mustafa (PBUH) Prize for his services in the field of bio-organic chemistry! This year’s ceremony, held today in Tehran, Iran, is part of a 4-day event that includes talks and workshops – enabling Iqbal and his fellow 2021 Laureates to share their passion for science with an international audience, including many early-career researchers.
Today an interview with our director, Professor Paul Denny, features in a new campaign, running in the UK’s Guardian newspaper, to highlight the need to engage with the need for innovative research and better global public awareness for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).
The COMSTECH and the NTD NETWORK virtual lecture programme, launched June 2021, provides live webinars in skills needed for research into Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and draws upon expertise from both our Networks.
These talks are aimed at academics, professional scientists and interested members of the general public from Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states and offer opportunities for specialists in Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) to gain or enhance their knowledge, skills, and academic connections.
