Knowledge has no limits and no boundaries for research maniac.
Research terminates at infinity
Though, research in science has assumed immeasurable dimensions with its classification into different fields of study, yet, there are matters of mutual interest to give comprehensive treatment to the subject under investigation. In surmounting the problems in respective areas, one invariably is forced to encroach other disciplines. There are number of instances of joint ventures, involving scientists from divergent fields of study, to develop consensus to conclude. In the strict sense, research at top levels has resisted to be colonized. For example,
Study in genetics, has impact on a number of physical and biological sciences.
Research in crystallography has been a subject of mutual interest of physicists, chemists and chemical engineers etc. alike.
Computer simulation is matter of universal interest.
Environmental studies has motivated almost all the sectors of science to share responsibilities in the wake of growing pollution.
So much so, even natural and social sciences compromise at higher level of studies to be separated.
The kind of forum, thus, contemplated by the science international is aimed at providing common room for scientists from various fields of pure and applied sciences for direct communication to share their knowledge. The cross breeding of ideas certainly helps in the exploration of new avenues in the world of science.

Human organs grown in pigs? Not so fast
Despite recent successes at growing mouse organs in rats, using the same trick to grow human organs in larger animals such as pigs is a long way off, new research shows. The resulting human-animal chimeras don’t grow well, and few human cells survive.

  Plant biologists welcome their robot overlords
The idea of using detailed imaging to study plant form and function has caught on. The use of drones and robots is also on the rise as researchers pursue the ‘quantified plant’ — one in which each trait has been carefully and precisely measured from nearly every angle.

Growing organs from one species in the body of another may one day relieve transplant shortages. Now researchers show that islets from rat-grown mouse pancreases can reverse disease when transplanted into diabetic mice.






Countering the Internet Propaganda Against MHT

A Message from Academics—A Call to the Merited Cognizance

It is less often that a certain academic commencement made by some Pakistani makes all of us uprightly elevated as the ground breaking discovery of MHT and its first demonstration makes identically. But, contrarily some naïve chaps have launched an obnoxious propaganda campaign on the internet to pollute the layman public opinion on pretty narrow grounds.

Please have an insight into the subject-matter in order to evaluate the issue’s ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ on a meritorious way—by means of intellectual honesty.

Professor Emeritus Dr. Zaki (COMSATS), Prof. Dr. Khalida M. Khan (University of the Punjab), Prof. Dr. Umar Farooq (DUHS), Lt. Col. (R) Azhar Saleem (SAARC Academia), Dr. F. M. Bhatti (MAVSO Intl.), Dr. Narmeen Gohar (Mayo Hospital), Dr. Rabia Faridi (USA), Dr. Salawal Salah (New Zealand), Dr. E. M. Nawaratne (Sri Lanka)

On the discovery of Magneto- Hydro-Tropism (MHT), an interdisciplinary panel discussion was conducted on 22nd July, 2016 in the Centre for Integrated Mountain Research, University of the Punjab, Lahore, experts of different disciplines posed different questions on the MHT discoverer, Prof, Dr. Aurangzeb Al Hafi. All of the technical questions posed during the session, were addressed properly. MHT was learnt as a breakthrough discovery that has brought a feather in the cap of Pakistani academia and helped to fetch Pakistan’s a softer image in the world. Similarly it was concluded by the quorum consensus to answer and counter the propaganda campaign against the MHT discovery. The said agenda was endorsed by the undermentioned academics. 

Dr. Khalida Khan, (CIMR-PU), Prof. Dr. Humala S. Khalid (Ex Dean, LCWU), Prof. Dr. Zaki Ahmad Professor Emeritus, Adjunct Prof. (COMSAT), Prof. Dr. Azam Sheikh (Sci. Int.),    Prof. Dr. C. M. Ashraf (Rep., Royal Society of Chemistry, UK), Prof. Dr. M.

Discovery of Magneto-hydro-tropism (MHT) — A Question Mark on Academia’s Face or A Test Case for the Intellectual Honesty Essentials—Media Rumors, Communal Divergences or Utilitarian Prejudices?— An Analytical Review.

By: S. S. Paru L. L. D.

In the last two weeks’ course of events, an eccentric and strange wave of suspicion has been outlandishly aroused and stirred on different websites and news outlets, which more or less is all about assessing the ‘worth’ or ‘paltriness’ of an experiment conducted by a team of Pakistani scientists, who claimed a major ‘breakthrough discovery’ in the domains of basic as well as applied sciences.

Reportedly, besides international scientific observing from UK and USA via satellite, the demonstration’s on ground observing panel consisted of inter-disciplinary experts from different institutions of Pakistani national academia.

Some of the findings were disclosed to an assorted and pluralist audience-ship who attended the event. As one would expect, quite naturally, neither all of the specifics were disclosed to media, nor were all of the technical peculiarities likely to be made public. Some of the methodical and certain systematic details were reported to the academics at the termination of the MHT trialing event.
