Research and Innovation

Indo-Australian collaboration in non-communicable disease and injury research
graphic

In late 2007, a five year MOU was signed with the Indian Council of Medical Research supporting collaborative projects in non-communicable disease control and injury prevention. The current initiatives under this MOU include:

  • Diabetes research workshop in New Delhi in 2009 - This workshop has arisen from a joint symposium held in November 2008 to agree on a research theme of common interest. The theme that emerged was “Obesity and diabetes in adolescence”.
  • Road traffic injury workshop in Sydney in early 2010 - This workshop has arisen from a the shared interests of the 3 partners.

These initial workshops will serve as a sustainable model for funded, truly collaborative and major research activities between University of Sydney and a range of Indian scientists.
