Nazarbayev University (NU), Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, and the Nazarbayev Foundation recently had a meeting with Kazakh Prime Minister Olzhas Bektenov to discuss the state-of-the-art laboratories at NU and the latest scientific developments happening there.

During the meeting, the Supreme Board of Trustees learned about the research teams at NU laboratories who are currently working on projects related to artificial intelligence development, innovations in optoelectronics for green technologies, and advancements in diagnosing and treating complex diseases.

The general director of the National Laboratory Astana (NLA), Dos Sarbassov, shared information about his team’s work on developing an effective cancer treatment. He reported encouraging results from the initial phases 1 and 2 studies of the drug. Additionally, Ainur Akilzhanova, the acting director of the Center for Life Sciences at NLA, discussed creating a “genetic profile” of Kazakh citizens. This genetic profile could help identify predispositions to diseases and contribute to public health protection and domestic medicine development in Kazakhstan.

Bektenov laid out specific tasks aimed at integrating science and production as well as expanding access to scientific infrastructure for Kazakh research community. The meeting also included a presentation on an accelerator for research on water purification and hydrogen generation that was created in collaboration with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in United States.
