- LPU scientists got determined to research for treatment of cancer in particular
- Professor Dr Manoj revealed great interest in having joint research works with LPU students and faculty
- Dr Manoj also addressed medical researchers at PGI Chandigarh
Invoking LPU researchers for easy medication and complete eradication of ‘Cancer’, Dr Manoj informed: “The study of medicine is a powerful integration of science, technologies, experience, and experiment. It enables its students to lessen human pain and suffering wherever in the world it may occur. To study research oriented medicine is to be prepared to play a leading role in such a humane quest.” Dr Manoj further informed: “The type of cancer an individual has, and how it gets treated, is no longer just about where in the body the cancer started- breast, lungs or colon. Now, doctors decide how to control cancer by researching in depth about the specific molecular and genetic makeup of their individual patient’s tumor.” Dr Manoj explained in details what personalized medicine means for cancer patients; where personalized cancer stands today; and also reviewed personalized medicine for cancer prevention. He also shared success stories of genomic medicines quoting interesting examples.
About visiting LPU and for further joint projects with it, Dr Manoj shared: “It is indeed a great experience on having exposure to energetic environment at LPU campus, which is definitely the best campus that I visited in India. It was also great to discuss small focused projects on delivery of genes oriented medicine data. Working further with LPU students & faculty, I will be happy to provide an opportunity to abler ones at LPU to visit my lab at Harvard Medical School for internship and carrying out joint projects. Getting progress, I will be further happy to have joint grant from ‘National Science Foundation’ on such projects.” He also assured: “As per my keen interest in Indian food and Ayurveda therapies, I will be glad to evaluate LPU pharmacy products.”
LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal advised young scientists at university to work more in this field as researchers and cancer centers are keen to embrace this personalized caring approach. He asked LPU students and faculty to be up to the expectations and aspirations of the elite guest. Sharing further, Mr Mittal informed: “The US President Barack Obama has also announced many millions investment for such humane initiative which is to provide great opportunities for new medical breakthroughs. I personally feel that extending beyond cancer personalized medicine encompasses all health issues; however, cancer is a major focus.”
