HMCSR aims to be a center of distinct scientific and educational environment with solid foundation in the field of material sciences, nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical solutions and drug discovery.

In particular, it strives to narrow the gap between academia and industry by enhancing cooperation between the two sectors and providing a platform for joint projects.

 

 

HMCSR aims to be a center of distinct scientific and educational environment with solid foundation in the field of material sciences, nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical solutions and drug discovery.

In particular, it strives to narrow the gap between academia and industry by enhancing cooperation between the two sectors and providing a platform for joint projects.

The strategy to achieve this aim will entail the following activities:

 

 

Short term

  • Supporting scientific research in the fields which are deemed to be of the utmost priority to the center (material science, nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical solution and drug discovery).
  • Participating in publishing the research results supported by HMCSR.
  • Hiring research assistants to conduct research or assist faculty members conducting research.
  • Equipping the center with the latest technology available to conduct applied and scientific research.
  • Supporting other faculties within the UJ to conduct scientific research inside the center in order to participate in local and international.
  • Hosting companies and institutions to conduct workshops and lectures inside the center.
  • Offering Ali Mango Awards for distinguished research projects. This prize is awarded every year to researchers who have conducted outstanding research in one of the following fields: material science, nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical solution and drug discovery. The award consists of a cash award of 2,000 JD (2,210€), donated by the Mango Family after whom the centre is named.
  • Holding Yearly HMCSR Scientific Day.
  • Holding Monthly lectures inside the center.

 

Medium term

  • Establishing Central Laboratories equipped with the latest technology and make them available to all UJ faculties.
  • Establishing a specialized unit for managing research projects so as to increase HMCSR’s research capacity.

 

Long term

  • Bringing research and innovation closer to the market and fostering the link between academia and industry.
  • Establishing the Technology Transfer Office (TTO) as main instrument to help researchers:
    • Developing their projects;
    • Founding industrial partners;
    • Dealing with IP;
    • Bringing products to market.
  

HMCSR aspires to active participation in developing the resources, at the University of Jordan, to conduct original research in the fields of Applied Science and Technology, in the fields which have been deemed to utmost priority to the center such as (material science, nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical solution and drug discovery). This objective is to be achieved by dedicating HMCSR to:

Short

1.     Supporting scientific research in the fields which are deemed to be of the utmost priority to the center (material science, nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical solution and drug discovery).

  1. Participating in publishing the research results supported by HMCSR.
  2. Hiring research assistants for specific periods of time, to conduct research or assist faculty members conducting research.
  3. Establishing and equipping the center with   necessary & modern equipment to conduct applied and scientific research.

5.     Supporting other schools to conduct scientific research inside the center in order to participate in local and international competition and supervising the conduct their research.

6.     Hosting companies and institutions to conduct workshops and lectures inside the center.

7.     Establishing scientific labs and installing different advanced scientific equipment for the different scientific faculties inside the center.

8.     Offering Ali Mango Award for distinguished researcher of scientific faculties in the University of Jordan. This reward is awarded every year to distinguished researchers in recognition of the level of the research performance of the faculty members by   HMCSR and to encourage researchers in scientific faculties. The Mango Family donated the amount of the award of (JD 5000) five thousand Jordanian Dinars, (JD 2000) two thousand thereof shall be distributed to the winners.

9.     Holding Yearly HMCSR Scientific Day

10.  Holding Monthly lectures inside the center

Medium

11.  Establishing Central Laboratories in the center equipped with various advanced scientific instrumentation and contributing to the procurement of such equipment. Providing labs that meet the needs and uses of such equipments.

The following equipments are currently available in the Central Labs:

a.     Scanning Electron Microscope ( SEM)

b.    Spectroflourometer

c.     Particle Size and zeta-potential Analyzer

d.    Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR 500 MHz)       

e.     X-Ray Single Crystal

12.  Establishing a specialized unit for managing research projects, for the advancement of scientific research within the University of Jordan in order to enhance the researchers’ capabilities and unite them with their counterparts wherever they are. This can be achieved by providing the appropriate conditions for the researcher in preparing their research project properly and direct them to the relevant local, international and/or regional body that provides the appropriate financial support for the execution of the research and the actual and practical help in managing and executing these external projects

Long

13.  Bringing research and innovation closer together hoping to be a model research center in the region

Establishing the Technology Transfer Office (TTO) to help researchers first; with their Intellectual Property then to transfer their innovation to industry and to transfer the scientific researches results into product. Participate in initiating specific interdisciplinary scientific research projects in areas of benefit to Jordan and various Jordanian development Universities
  

• Participating in the development of the capabilities of University of Jordan in the fields of materials science, nanotechnology, biotechnology, pharmaceutical solution, drug discovery research.
• Enhancing the capabilities of researchers and opening the way for cooperation with their counterparts.
• Providing the necessary support and help for researchers to conduct scientific research and helping them find the appropriate financial funding stream either at national or international level.
• Cooperating with local, regional and international research institutions and working on technology transfer
