Inaguration and Establishment of DAILAB

An important MoU to promote international academic research cooperation in the field of science and biotechnology was linked between Japan and India on March 22, 2018 at the Department of Biotechnology with the participation of a distinguished gathering of academics from Japan and India. Dr. Pratap K. Pati, Head, Department of Biotechnology, GNDU and Coordinator of the event stated that the MoU was signed between the Guru Nanak Dev University and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST),Japan, acting through its Biomedical Research Institute (BMRI), Japan. The two institutions collaborating in biomedical research for last several years have tied a formal bond to upgrade their activities to train next generation.

National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) is one of the largest public research organizations in Japan engaged in cutting-edge R & D bridging research achievements and industries and linking them to commercialization. In October 2013, AIST had entered into an agreement with the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) of the Government of India to establish a joint research laboratory named “DBT-AIST International Laboratory for Advanced Biomedicine” (DAILAB) at the Biomedical Research Institute at AIST, Tsukuba, Japan. DAILAB is the first of its kind and offers a variety of research and technology opportunities to Indian scholars in a highly competent and world class environment. DAILAB had earlier established six SISTER (Satellite Institutes for Special Training in Education and Research) labs including one in Sri Lanka. The seventh SISTER Lab has been established in Department of Biotechnology,Guru Nanak Dev University (
