Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony and Kyrghyz President Roza Otunbaeva jointly inaugurating the Kyrghyz-Indian Mountain Biomedical Research Centre in Bishkek on Tuesday - IANS.
India on Tuesday opened a mountain biomedical research centre in Kyrghyzstan to help better the lives of both military personnel and civilians, making it the first such joint project New Delhi has had with any country.
The centre, which has been built in Kyrghyz capital Bishkek, was jointly inaugurated by Kyrghyzstan President Roza Otumbaeva and Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony. The Indian minister is on a three-day visit to the Central Asian nation.
"The Kyrghyz-Indian Mountain Biomedical Research Centre (KIMBMRC) will carry out research on the mechanism of short-term and long-term high altitude adaptation," a defence ministry release said.
Scientists from the two countries will focus on molecular biology approaches to identify markers for screening of people for high altitude resistance and susceptibility to high altitude sickness and development of mountain maladies, added the release.
"The benefits of these studies will apply to a large population across the globe, as more and more people travel to the mountains every year. India's contribution to the project is Rs6 crore," it said.
