“Scientific inspiration can come from anywhere —people, an event, even an experiment gone awry.
But perhaps nothing can drive innovation morepowerfully than the passion born of tragedy”
In addition to our constant efforts in improving the academic excellence in SMUFOM, we have started
a bunch of research projects. One of the upcoming projects is- The Early Detection of Diabetic
Complications, Metabolic syndrome and even predicting the start of management in prediabetics
using the metabolomic methods. This project is a joint effort of St. Martinus University faculty of
Medicine & University of Hasselt (Belgium). We will use the metabolites as early markers for predicting
complications related to Diabetes (Prognostication of Diabetes by the Metabolomic methods).
NMR spectroscopy is a new emerging and most promising method of early detection of various
pathologies with a much higher sensitivity and specificity than commonly available screening
methods for various cancers (for which University of Hasselt already has got the patents), and we
will be focusing on employing the NMR spectroscopy on the most common noncommunicable disease worldwide (Diabetes).
The time is not far when we will be able to predict ahead of time about various
complications in diabetics, and then employ the management and preventive measures for diabetic complications, which can prove as one
of the biggest breakthrough in the ever evolving science of medicine.
As much as are academics important in a student’s life, so is the importance of research
and development of a creative mind, and so we will be involving our students in the research
projects in SMUFOM during summers & the fall 2012 semester .
Moreover the publications will help students not just establishing their names in the ever
evolving field of science, but also give them insight of the integration of research and
academics in the life of a clinician academician.
