Health for All in Dhaka: CHEMRAWN helps establish an International Centre for Natural Product Research

Leiv K. Sydnes
Published Online: 2018-04-30 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ci-2018-0204


After a long-lasting and demanding effort, a dream has come true: plans to establish the International Centre for Natural Product Research (ICNPR) in Dhaka, Bangladesh are becoming a reality. At the end of November 2017, the Islamic Development Bank approved a significant loan that made it possible to achieve an ambitious idea. The centre will be built at, and become an integrated part of, Bangladesh University of Health Sciences in Dhaka. This odyssey would never have become a success if it had not been for Professor Mohammad Mosihuzzaman, who worked relentlessly to build international support for the idea through IUPAC projects and CHEMRAWN XX.
