    Pakistan's International Centre for Chemical and Biological Sciences placed under the auspices of UNESCO



    © UNESCO/Christelle ALIX Signing of an agreement to establish ICCBS as a Categrory 2 Centre

    On Monday 21 November 2016, an agreement was signed by UNESCO’s Director-General, Ms Irina Bokova and the Director of the International Centre for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS), Mr Muhammad Iqbal Choudhary to establish ICCBS as UNESCO category 2 centre. The decision to place ICCBS under the auspices of UNESCO as a category 2 centre was approved during the 38th General Conference of the Organization*.

    Based in Karachi, Pakistan, ICCBS is regarded asone of the developing world’s finest research and training centres at the interphase between chemical and biological sciences, conducting cutting-edge interdisciplinary research for the discovery of important chemical compounds from plants and antioxidants, as well as exploring innovative methodologies for the synthesis of novel agents and proteins used in drug discovery and biotechnology. It has amassed around 200 scientific patents to date and counts with state of the art equipment. In addition, ICCBS organizes important international conferences, symposia and workshops for participants from Pakistan and abroad on topics ranging from natural products, molecular medicine, spectroscopy, nanotechnology and computational medicinal chemistry.

    Located in the premises of the University of Karachi, ICCBS is a large centre, covering more than 200 acres and comprising 12 research-laboratory complexes with some of Pakistan’s most sophisticated laboratory equipment. The foundation of ICCBS was brought about by generous private donations from the Husein Ebrahim Jamal (HEJ) Foundation, which built the Husein Ebrahim Jamal Research Institute of Chemistry in 1976 and the Dr. Panjwani Memorial Trust, which built the Panjwani Centre for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research in 2002. Over the past 47 years, more than 700 students have earned Doctorate degrees and around 1,000 Masters degrees.

    The Director General expressed her appreciation of the centre, its strong south-south cooperation and of the quality of science and scientists she has met during her missions to Pakistan. She also highlighted the need for both applied and basic science.

    The Ambassador of Pakistan thanked the Director General for her support of the centre and praised Prof. Att U. Rahman’s important role in creating UNESCO category 2 centre and his unrelenting support to scientific excellence world-wide, which has inspired many researchers in Pakistan and beyond.

    Mr Mr Aziz Latif Jamal recalled his late father’s support for the establishment of the centre, which was the largest support of scientific research in Pakistan at the time.

    The 800 MHz Bruker Ascend NMR spectrometer is the newest addition to the NMR facility, of the International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences. The equipment is featured with an Avance III HD console (5 RF channels, 2 receivers), equipped with a TCI (1H/13C/15N/2H) cryogenically cooled probe (with temperature control over -40 and +80 °C ) optimized for 1H detection (inverse probe), and also a RT probe.

    The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility at the ICCBS is a Core Science Facility established in 1982. It provides access to qualified researchers in the physical, biological, and industrial sciences to state-of-the-art NMR instrumentation for spectroscopy. The Facility serves mostly undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral researchers in the Chemistry and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Departments all over the country. The Facility presently operates twelve superconducting NMR spectrometers (Bruker) of varying purposes and capabilities, including three instruments (two 600 MHz and one 500 MHz) are equipped with cryogenically cooled probes, and one multinuclear probe to detect all type of elements. The new 800 MHz NMR instrument has recently been installed. The NMR instruments are accessible to trained users 24 hours per day, year-round.

    The Facility also serve corporate and industrial clients, we offer a full range of NMR spectroscopy service options from routine 1D proton spectra acquisition and interpretation to complex 2D NMR analysis for the verification of their products as well as contaminants.

    The Facility provides on request training to the researcher all over the country as well as to the researchers of our brother Muslim countries to enable users to independently operate the spectrometers.
