Nepal health research council

Nepal Health Research Council

  • Supports health Research

    • Mostly in health system research

    • Negligible investment in Biotechnology


Medical biotechnology in nepal

Medical Biotechnology In Nepal

  • Immunology:

    • Vaccine Production

      • Rabies Vaccine Production (Central Veterinary Research Laboratory), Tripureswor

    • Antibody Production

      • Everest Biotech

        • Founded by biochemists at Oxford University, based in Oxfordshire, UK with a production laboratory established in Kathmandu.

    • CDM TU- Non commercial/Academic Use

Biotechnology development opportunities and challenges

Real-Time PCR


Challenges

Challenges:

  • Machines without consumables

    • Academic & HMG Institutes

  • Training of Human Resources

    • Latest updates

  • Research Culture

    • Carrer prospects

  • Research Funding & Collaboration

    • NHRC ?

    • Big researches- Survey type, No Laboratory capacity development in Nepal

  • Availability of Consumables in local market

    • Mostly not available, If available, costs 3-5 times of original cost

  • Entrepreneurship

    • Market


Hope for future

Hope for Future

  • New University programs as per market requirements

    • Medical technology Program

    • Medical Microbiology Program

    • Pharmaceutical Sciences Program

    • Biotechnology Program

    • Allied health Programs ( Radiology, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Bio-medical Engineering, …….)

  • Availability of funding in post WTO scenario

  • Introduction of newer Pharmaceutical companies

  • Availability of trained /cost effective HRs

  • Worldwide market in post WTO situation

  • Coming up of new diagnostic companies

  • Positive Government Policy ?

Formula for Success


Biotechnology development opportunities and challenges

LUCK

12+21+3+11

47%

LOVE

12+15+22+5

54%

EFFORT

5+6+6+15+18+20

70%

96%

KNOWLEDGE

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5

HARDWORK

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11

98%

None of them makes 100%


Then what makes 100

Then what makes 100%

  • Is it money? …No!!!

  • Is it leadership? …No!!!

  • Every problems has a solution, so perhaps

Change our “ATTITUDE”

It is ATTITUDE towards life and work that makes

Our Life 100% Successful

ATTITUDE

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5

100%

Don’t you think so ?!?!?!?!
