Madras University to play a key role in DRDO's biodefence project: The DRDO has tied up with National Manufacturing Competitive Council in preparing a draft on nanoscience and technology policy which would be ready in six months

Abstract:
The National Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of the University of Madras will play a key role in the National Biodefence programme of the Defence Research and Development Organisation , said W. Selvamurthy, Chief Controller (R&D), DRDO.

Delivering the inaugural address at the national conference on nanoscience and nanotechnology organised by the university, he said the national biodefence programme was currently being drafted. DRDO was the nodal agency associated with the project which aims at protecting the natural wealth, including plants, herbs, animals, hotspots in North East and Western Ghats, coasts and farm products.

The DRDO has tied up with National Manufacturing Competitive Council in preparing a draft on nanoscience and nanotechnology policy which would be ready in six months.
