Agilent Technologies has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mahidol University in Thailand to accelerate research and development (R&D) in the field of science over the next three years.
The MoU with the university’s Faculty of Science supports a newly established set of collaborative R&D environments focused on providing analytical expertise and is Agilent’s first academic partnership with the top university in Thailand to advance the level of research and education.
The agreement covers areas such as the supply of mechanical elements for early small and large molecule research into target compounds, which is a fundamental platform in translating into synthetic biology in therapeutic use. This collaboration also outlines multi-disciplinary technology training on world-class analytical development, bringing innovative thinking to enable scientific discoveries.
Assoc. Professor Palangpon Kongsaeree, Dean, Faculty of Science, Mahidol University said, “The partnership opportunity with a world-renowned company such as Agilent Technologies will not only strengthen our basic science research, but also translational research to drive for the betterment of our country and mankind.”
Since establishing its Bangkok site in 1999, it has been an engineering center and services hub for Agilent’s business developing and delivering complete analytical science and technologies, as well as clinical research to fulfil laboratory demands across Thailand. Agilent has also partnered with Silpakorn University on programmes to develop local science talent.
