As a result of the efforts by members of Canada-Pakistan Research & Development Council (CPRDC), Pakistan’s Indus Hospital has been selected for Clinical Trials by the University of Manitoba. An agreement to this effect was signed between the University of Manitoba and the Indus Hospital, Pakistan this week. Collaboration between Pakistani and Canadian institutions in this regard will further strengthen clinical trial facilities in Pakistan. Later, focus can be shifted to joint research on the causes and treatment of diseases like hepatitis, diabetes and cancer. A team of researchers from the University of Manitoba will be visiting Pakistan shortly.
