It is a matter of great pride for Aga Khan University that the quality of research work of one of our faculty is being acknowledged and honoured at the national level with this prestigious award. Notably, this award has been given for the first time to an AKU faculty and I am sure that this award will motivate other faculty researchers as well, to reach new levels of excellence.
