This week saw the return of Dr Rafika Jarray from Chitkara University’s 8th Global Week. Having been invited to share her particular expertise in the use of pluripotent stem cells in disease modelling, Dr Jarray arrived in Chandigarh on the 17th October to deliver a week of lectures. By all accounts, the staff and students at Chitkara were delighted with the opportunity to learn from, and work alongside, such a highly engaging and qualified researcher.
The Global Week provided also provided Dr Jarray with an exciting opportunity to meet and converse with colleagues at Chitkara University – already an established partner of Sup’Biotech – and other visiting professors, from universities and higher education colleges around the globe. Many interesting opportunities for collaboration and partnership were discussed with various colleagues. The week’s events, which included trips to the Golden Temple at Amritsar and the Kasauli Hill Station, also included ample opportunity to discover the impressive facilities at Chitkara University, and the thriving academic and entrepreneurial environment both on campus, and, in a wider sense, in the city of Chandigarh.
