Iran and Kenya express willingness to cooperate in the field of biotechnology

The Iranian side offered to launch joint scientific projects

Kenya's Ambassador to Iran Joshua Igweta Gatimo has called for the development of academic ties between the two countries. This is reported by Tehran Times, a partner of TV BRICS.

The diplomat stressed the need to expand the student and faculty exchange programme.

“Iran’s progress and self-sufficiency in biotechnology and genetic fields are astonishing,” the Kenyan ambassador said during a visit to the country's National Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (NIGEB).

The diplomat in a meeting with NIGEB Director General Javad Mohammadi said Kenya would also like to cooperate with Iran in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. 

Mohammadi, on his part, said the institute welcomes interaction with all countries. He suggested launching joint projects in biotechnology and genetic engineering. The National Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology was founded in 1989 under the auspices of Iran's Ministry of Science, Research and Technology.

NIGEB staff members are involved in both basic and applied research in various biotechnology disciplines. They consider the implications of technology commercialisation and the impact of developments on society, the publication said.
