    1. “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 INTERNATIONALIZATION OF RESEARCH INSTITUTES AND BIOETHICS FOCUSING ON EU FP7 THEBERA PROJECT AS A ROLE MODEL By: Sanaa Botros Professor of Pharmacology Theodor Bilharz Research Institute , THEBERA Coordinator Chair of TBRI Research Ethics Committee UNESCO Rregional Conference

    2. INTERNATIONALIZATION OF RESEARCH UNESCO Rregional Conference “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 • Provides new opportunity for business to draw on local strengths and specialization. • It is the global trade in knowledge. • Strengthening economies through R&D can provide economic benefits similar to other farms of trade • R&D are now shifting from supply –side models towards demand driven approaches entailing collaboration between researchers in different public, private institutes and industry.

    3. INTERNATIONALIZATION OF MEDICAL RESEARCH AND HEALTH CARE UNESCO Rregional Conference   “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 • Strong public science base and well educated human talent • Good connection between science base and industry • Intellectual property rights that appropriately balance protection and mobility of knowledge • Strengthening of bioethics to govern ethical conduct of research

    4. FP7 ERAWIDE PROJECT THEBERA THEODOR BILHARZ INTO THE EUROPEAN RESEARCH AREAFP7 INCO.2010-6-2 ERAWIDEProject number 266581 UNESCO Rregional Conference “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 • A response to the EU-ERAWIDE call aiming to reinforce the cooperative capacities of research centers located in the ENP to allow for coherent international health research schemes across the Mediterranean by the integration of approaches and resources.

    5. UNESCO Rregional Conference “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 THEBERA Project Objective Strengthening the capacity of TBRI excellence for participation in European health research initiatives by expanding cooperation and integration with the ERA while realizing it as an international excellence centre for liver disease research & management including liver surgery excellence

    6. UNESCO Rregional Conference “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 THEBERA Partner Organizations • Theodor Bilharz Research Institute (TBRI): A medical governmental research institute focusing on control and management of endemic diseases prevalent in the region • Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT): A non profit organization providing public service by ensuring independent assessment of sciences and presenting it both within Egypt and internationally • Europe for Business Ltd (EFB): A high growth knowledge Co., focusing on innovative management, providing support to PP organizations in product innovation, TT,IT solutions and R&D projects • PISA University (UINIPI): A regional referral center for major hepatobiliary and liver transplant surgery , acute liver failure and liver trauma, the liver transplant program of Pisa is the second largest in Italy.

    9. UNESCO Rregional Conference “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 Training Workshop Topics • FP7: General presentations, funding opportunities, how to prepare proposals, contracting rules, project management including financial • Ethics : Research ethics committees, research misconduct, informed consent, ethics of stem cells, liver transplantation and biological samples • IPR : IPR related agreements, patent drafting, licensing, TT and contractual issues • Three workshops /2 years , each for three days • Participants number is 25-30 • Egyptian and international experts

    10. UNESCO Rregional Conference   “Current Challenges in Women’s Health Care and Medical Research,Cairo7-8 December 2011 Theodor Bilharz Research Institute IRB • Operational guidelines: • The establishment of operational policies addressing ethical issues for sound implementation of research activities to ensure an institutional culture of research excellence • TBRI, IRB is multidisciplinary and multi-sectorial in composition involving medical and non medical, scientific and non scientific members with balanced gender • A template for applying to Ethics BC including name, address, proof of acceptability of research design , recruitment procedure, clinical & laboratory tests to be carried out, the number of subjects, risks & benefits to participants , example of informed consent and Helsinki declaration • A checklist for protocol evaluation in view of international agencies SOP’s to unify criteria for evaluation • Meetings are scheduled to be monthly with prepared agenda and minutes registered
