Establishment of essential research infrastructure for understanding and effectively addressing health, energy, and environmental challenges.

Ability to effectively address a challenge is naturally associated with the ability to understand a challenge!

Correct understanding of a challenge is the key component of any attempt to find an effective solution to it. Understanding starts from asking the right questions, for instance: Why does a disease occur? Why a disease is so prevalent in a certain region? What factors are triggering it and what are the potential cures? How can we ensure food security for our next generations? What type of crops should we grow and how can we enhance their productivity? What implications economic growth have on our ecosystem and how can we sustain our progress with a minimum impact on our ecosystem? What is smog, where is it coming from, and why do insulations fail when there is smog? Electricity, Energy! Why are we short of it and how can we overcome its shortfall? Answers to these questions, and many others, come from a set of key analytical equipment such as NMR, STEM, XPS, etc. Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE) at LUMS and its faculty team have been able to establish a commendable set of equipment through winning grants from various national and international funding resources. However, equipment like NMR is too expensive to acquire through any of the external/internal funding mechanism. So, we request your support as we set ourselves the goal of acquiring the ability to understand and effectively respond to challenges faced by our local and global community. We have started a fund raising campaign to acquire key equipment (NMR) essential for understanding and innovating solutions to health, energy, and environmental challenges. Besides, such a high quality infrastructure will raise the quality of education accessible to the students and relevant industry in the region. 

We have a commitment of half (50%) of the cost of an NMR equipment from a donor and LUMS, and we ONLY need to raise the other half. Please donate as much as you can for this purpose:
