MoU for dental programme

THE CHENNAI-BASED Rajan Dental Institute recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Hong Kong.

A postgraduate programme will be evolved in consultation with the university.

The university's dentistry department is 23 years old and has faculties from 10 other countries, according to Lakshman P. Samaranayake, Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry.

Recently, the university signed a similar memorandum with Beijing University. The first batch of students will arrive from China in September.

A qualified oral microbiologist, Dr. Samaranayake specialises in treating people with HIV/AIDS.

Technical assistance in detecting HIV infection using the facilities in their laboratories is another option open to the Indian doctors, Dr. Samarnayake said.

Felicitating the institute, K. Anandakannan, former vice-chancellor of the Tamilnadu Dr. MGR Medical University, said the collaboration would help in research.

Dr. Samaranayake and Dr. R. Gunaseelan, Medical Director of the institute signed the memorandum.
