Need for promotion of research in medical profession stressed

Founder of Pakistan Research Initiative (PRI) Dr. Nauman Hashmani Friday said that research was very valuable in medical profession and local data gathering must be promoted in the country.
Delivering a lecture on “Learn how to write a research manuscript” in a seminar held during a three-day 39th KAROPHTH & First Pak Cornea Conference, he said that the young researchers could do miracles at international level if provided with much needed resources. This would also help fight with different ailments. Research and development (R&D) funds should be enhanced.
He said that PRI was founded to promote academics and research within the Pakistani community. “There is a severe lack of knowledge and motivation for new students, and through this initiative, we would like to bring that to the many students in the country. “We not only want to promote the idea of publishing but the idea that data gathering is more than simple publications; it helps you change communities and the medical world at large,” he added.
Dr. Nauman said that PRI hopes to bring basic research, manuscript writing, and statistical analysis workshops to throughout the country.
This would be possible if the enormous interest from the students continues to pour in.
