Youngest Indian Speaker at
UN General Assembly
Mr. Faizal Khan presented the case study on NIMS Medicity’s success in using hybrid
renewable sources of energy for
powering health interventions at The General Assembly of United Nations, New York,
on 21st May 2015. This happens to be
Asia’s first successful initiative on solar industrialization using hybrid renewable
sources of energy.
Emphasized the idea of harnessing solar energy to meet the energy requirements of
industries and stressed on generating
solar energy for industrial purpose rather than for domestic purpose. His
presentation was selected as one among the
four best presentations selected out of a total seven.
Cardiac catheterization lab powered by hybrid energy sources (Solar & Wind
Established Asia's First cardiology department performing cardiac Interventions
powered by sustainable renewable energy.
Electricity generated from the hybrid system of wind and solar plant, sprawling over
300000 sq. ft. area in the 24 acres
hospital campus was used to power the cardiac catheterization lab making it Asia's
first green cardiac catheterization
lab. This successful implementation of renewable energy project was highly commended
by Dr. Kandeh Yumkella, former CEO
of the UN programme for Sustainable Energy for All, who visited Mr. Faizal Khan’s
project sites and expressed his
appreciation for setting models for others to replicate such project initiatives,
with a priority accent on efficiency
and ecological compliance in generating and using renewable sources of energy.
NIUSAT-First Private Nano Satellite
As the Pro-Chancellor of Noorul Islam University, Mr. Faizal Khan acted as a major
driving force behind India's 98th
satellite and first indigenous private nanosatellite launched on 23rd June 2017 by
ISRO built by Noorul Islam
University. The micro satellite can provide timely information related to impending
disasters and also the necessary
data for correct decision making to support any miscasting of any disasters in any
part of the country or on the globe.
The satellite could also help in disaster management in areas such as Kanyakumari
and Nagapattinam, which were
devastated by the tsunami in 2004.
The nanosatellite can provide timely information related to impending disasters and
also the necessary data for correct
decision making to support any miscasting of any disasters in any part of the
country or on the globe. The nanosatellite
also can map pollution and crop patterns across the globe. It can monitor the stress
on crops caused by diseases or lack
of proper irrigation. The Noorul Islam University has also established a dedicated
mission control centre for telemetry
and tele-command operations and payload data reception.
NIMS CENTRE FOR ADVANCED BIOTECHNOLOGY (NCAB)
Established the first Human Genetics and Molecular Biology Laboratory in Kerala as
Subsidiary of NIMS Medicity
established inside the NIMS Campus with the goal of providing advanced diagnostics
for various infectious and genetic
diseases. The exclusive facilities include NGS, CRISPR-Cas9 – Technology etc. that
enables geneticists and medical
researchers to edit parts of the genome by removing, adding or altering sections of
the DNA sequence. NIMS-HGK
Biotechnology finishing school, part of NCAB is also part of NCAB established with
the intention of providing the much
needed training for the biotechnology professionals.
