Tackling the challenges of today

IIT Bombay

NTU has recently agreed a double PhD agreement with the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), the highest ranked institution in South Asia. This University-wide, double PhD programme deepens the University’s relationship with IIT Bombay which has so far included collaboration in research and joint workshops in Precision Medicine and short-term student mobility.

One of NTU’s key collaborators at IIT Bombay, Professor Sanjeeva Srivastava, from the Department of Bioscience and Bioengineering, is a Visiting Professor at NTU and works closely with Professor Graham Ball from the School of Science and Technology.  In particular, Professor Ball and Professor Srivastava have co-convened a joint workshop on Big Data and Precision Medicine at IIT Bombay, a workshop funded by the UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) which is supported by India’s Ministry of Education, and the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, among others.

Since the signing of an MoU in June 2018, the two institutions have participated in two way short-term mobility including through NTU’s Global Summer School and have recently co-supervised two PhD students who both won a Newton Bhabha Fund grant to undertake research at NTU. Partnerships like this are pivotal in helping to grow NTU’s research capability, opening up access to world-class collaborators and facilities, and nurturing outstanding PhD students.
