UNTRM strengthens its international alliance with the University of Sydney, Australia, to enhance medical and health research in Peru 

PASANTÍA SIDNEY

With the goal of bolstering international collaborations with prestigious universities to provide high-quality higher education globally in postgraduate studies, Dr. Jorge Luis Maicelo Quintana, the Rector of the National University Toribio Rodríguez de Mendoza of Amazonas, is engaging in academic management and research activities at the esteemed University of Sydney (USYD), Australia, ranked No. 19 in the world according to QS 2024.

As part of these efforts, the Rector and the Doctoral Program Coordinator of UNTRM recently met with Dr. Margot Day, a research specialist in embryology trained at the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), and Dr. Michael Morris, an expert in reproductive physiology and stem cells, both from Sydney Medical School. During the meeting, they exchanged insights on USYD's latest research and advancements in the early development of the central nervous system, the impact of the maternal environment on embryonic growth, and the therapeutic potential of stem cells.

Additionally, Dr. Jaime Miranda, the Director of the School of Public Health at Sydney Medical School, recognized as one of the 30 scientists redefining science, shared his postgraduate research on epidemiological aspects and health policies regarding non-communicable chronic diseases in low- and middle-income countries, as well as his work on the prevention and control of these diseases. This collaboration is expected to open up new avenues for research and strengthen the exchange of knowledge in priority areas of public health.

These meetings pave the way for the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Health Sciences of UNTRM to establish collaborations in research projects and build robust international networks with the Sydney Medical School of USYD. This partnership will provide access to the latest advancements in areas such as embryology, reproductive physiology, epidemiology, and health policy, enhancing the quality of research and making significant contributions to the field of medicine and health in Peru. Furthermore, it will facilitate academic exchanges, joint research initiatives, and the development of master's and doctoral programs, specializations, training programs, and collaborative scientific events, enriching the educational and professional experiences of our university community.
