The agreement was signed between Queen's and the Ministry of Biotechnology, Government of India. It involves top cancer specialists from the National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi and Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, Queen's University.
To strengthen the agreement an international conference on Cancer Biology supported by the Government of India and the Department of Employment and Learning, Northern Ireland will run from 14 – 16 November in New Delhi. The Northern Ireland Minister for Employment and Learning, Sir Reg Empey, will officially open the conference.
Leading the Northern Ireland delegation is world renowned cancer oncologist, Professor Patrick Johnston from Queen's University. Speaking at the event he said: "Cancer does not recognise national boundaries and affects people across the globe. It is only through international research partnerships and the sharing of information that we can learn more about the disease. Through this collaboration we will be able to develop new treatments and improve the diagnosis of cancer to the betterment of everyone.
"India has great expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. With the beginning of this new partnership I am confident that we will take significant strides in combating one of the worlds most prevalent diseases."
The International Symposium features over 30 speakers from the United States, Europe and India, including seven invitees from the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology at Queen’s University.
Queen's University Belfast is on a ten day visit to strengthen its links with India.
In association with Bengal Engineering and Science University, Kolkata, Queen's will launch a unique scholarship programme at BESU on 19 November to allow Indian science and technology students to live and work in Belfast. The new scholarship scheme will help identify the research leaders of tomorrow.
Indian students will study in the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT), an established world class research centre at Queen's University. Students will also engage in a range of academic, cultural and social activities.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
