TI, IIT-Kgp in medical tech pact

Texas Instruments (TI), the global information technology company, has signed a four-year collaborative agreement with the School of Medical Science and Technology of Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT-KGP), to develop semiconductor technologies that will help improve the quality, comfort and accessibility of healthcare in India.

This is TI’s first partnership with an IIT on research projects devoted to medical electronics innovation. The project is a part of TI’s recent announcement to spend $15 million towards funding research work in the field of medical technology.

According to Ajoy Kumar Ray, head of school of medical science and technology at IIT-KGP, “In India alone, about 800,000 patients undergo coronary bypass surgery every year, while one in every 12 women develops breast cancer. Also, oral leukoplakia and oral sub-mucous fibrosis have been widely prevalent in India and are a cause of concern to scientists in the country. The TI-IT KGP technology partnership will enable devices that could help address some of these pressing healthcare issues.”

The research team will develop semiconductors for medical equipment for cancer and cardiac-related treatment. TI’s was supporting this research to help develop new semiconductor technologies for personal medical devices, implantables, medical imaging, wireless healthcare systems and bio-sensor technology.

The IIT-KGP research collaboration reflected TI’s keenness to develop the next generation of innovators.

The outcome of the research would be intellectual property of TI, which will use the technology globally, said Bishwadip Mitra, managing director of TI India Ltd.

Other research focus areas would be detection technology for cancer and heart problems by use of imaging technology and micro electro-mechanical system (MEMS) based biosensor technology.

“The research will be essentially on TI platform, as the company has an arsenal of about 17,000 analog chips, which can be used for imaging techniques,” Mitra said.

The collaborative research with IIT-KGP, which would involve 15-20 researchers, would be divided into three groups — biological research team, image processing team, and doctors, said Mitra.

This apart, specialists from TI would also work with the IIT researchers, and the research would be reviewed every six months, Ray added.

TI works with medical device customers across the globe to make quality healthcare more accessible to consumers.

Karnataka ready to go back to B-school

Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa wants to school his ministers before they well and truly begin to rule.

With development high on its agenda, the newly-formed Bharatiya Janata Party government in the state has decided to rope in the Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore (IIM-B) to give lessons in public policy to ministers and bureaucrats.

While this would be a unique experience for the powers that be, this is also the first time that the IIM-B would design such courses.

The decision was taken at a meeting between the institute and Yeddyurappa last week.
“The chief minister liked the idea and immediately agreed to facilitate it. Now, we are discussing how to develop the course and expect to finalise it by month-end,” chairman of centre for public policy (CPP) Gopal Naik said.

The ministers will learn to understand various issues and form public policies to tackle them through the short-term courses ranging from two days to a week. The courses will include workshops and seminars.

The CPP at IIM has a two-year post-graduate programme and short-term courses for IAS, IFS, IRS and ICS officers where the babus learn to identify issues and design and implement policies.
