    Perhaps we should talk a bit about braindrain in Pakistan. How can this be stopped?.

    actually thats not true. aku does a lot of basic science research.

    i am at Johns Hopkins and I did my MBBS from AKU. I read that paper. AKU has all the infrastructure to do that sort of basic science.

    check out AKU’s wikiepdia entry for recent discoveries

    [quote comment=”19013″]I hope we can have more posts on HOW to create a research environment in Pakistan. Education has to be key, but it is not just about money, its also about thought out policies. Unfortunately most univeristies in Pakistan do NOT see themselves as research places, they see themselves more as teaching places. There is a difference and society needs to recognize it and invest seperately in research environment. There are too many institutes of this and that, but too few who REALLY do any research.[/quote]

    Yes, I agree with that thought. There is a major project underway called LUMS SSE which is being billed as Pakistan’s first major research institution (I’m not in any way affiliated). It seems like some regular posters on this site are actually part of their advisory board.

    AKU does a good bit of research but their research is more geared towards public health issues; i.e. they do not concentrate on basic science research.
