"Plans are underway for joint research programmes with external funding. Exchange programmes will be promoted through creation of visiting faculty/posts of scientists with access to laboratory facilities for joint research and exchange of data," Mr Chakrabory, who also heads the School of Medical Science & Technology and is the Associate Dean of Sponsored Research and Industrial Consultancy at IITKGP said.
The integrated M.Sc.- Ph.D. programme, which has been planned, will focus on medical physics, nuclear medicine and molecular medical microbiology in its first phase.
