Missouri S&T, PCRMC partner for research & education

Officials from Missouri University of Science and Technology and the Phelps County Regional Medical Center met today (Thursday, July 2, 2015) to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that will help both institutions increase research collaboration and educational exchange.

“We are excited to join Phelps County Regional Medical Center on such an important collaboration,” says Dr. K. Krishnamurthy, vice provost for research at Missouri S&T. “Both Missouri S&T and PCRMC have a long history of serving the Rolla community and the state of Missouri. This partnership, which combines world-class technological research and medical advances, will build upon the success of both institutions.”

The MOU will promote collaboration in research and education and facilitate the exchange of ideas. It will leverage each institution’s resources in facilities, sponsored research, scholarly activities and technology transfer, as well as the development of new academic programs.

Research conducted as part of this collaboration is expected to be broad-based, ranging from the development of biomaterials for a number of applications to cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment to healthcare informatics, says Krishnamurthy.
