On the back of Professor Graham Ball’s collaboration with Professor Sanjeeva Srivastava, IITB, a general MoU was signed in June 2018, to support the collaboration and facilitate the co-supervision of PhD students and virtual mobility.

Stephen Williams, the Director of NTU Global said “NTU is particularly delighted to have signed this MoU with India’s highest ranked institution as it builds on a strong academic collaboration that developed out of Professor Ball’s participation in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Life Sciences Delegation to India in 2016. As a result, it not only has the full backing of the British Deputy High Commission in Mumbai, but is also supported by a number of concrete projects including the co-supervision of PhD students.”

It is testament to the quality of our research and NTU’s growing international reputation that IITB has requested to sign an MoU with NTU.

Professor Ball is Professor of Bioinformatics in the School of Science and Technology, Molecular Biology Lead for the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre and supervises undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral research projects at NTU. He also teaches on Bioinformatics, Statistics and Environmental Science modules.

Professor Sanjeeva Srivastava is the Associate Professor at IIT Bombay, teaching Proteomics, Biotechnology, and Cellular and Molecular Biology.
