  • IIT Delhi Industry Day laid emphasis on investing in innovation-led economy to develop India’s competitive advantage
  • 200 innovative product prototypes showcased at Industry Day by IIT Delhi researchers
  • New CSR Funding policy decision to boost research funding at IITs

New Delhi: Stressing on the need to strengthen industry-academia linkages to boost growth, the 3rd edition of IIT Delhi Industry Day opened here today. Distinguished speakers at the inaugural session acknowledged the need to accelerate investment in innovation-led economy to boost growth and develop competitive advantage for India in the global market.

Chief Guest at the Industry Day, Dr. V. K. Paul, Member, NITI Aayog inaugurated the day-long event at IIT Delhi. He was joined by Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao, Director, IIT Delhi,Prof. Anurag S.Rathore, Dean, Corporate Relations and other senior IITD functionaries.

The inaugural session was attended by business leaders, research community, delegates from Finland and Japan and IIT Delhi faculty.

Addressing the inaugural session Dr. V.K. Paul, Member, NITI Aayog, said, India’s national progress is crucially dependent on the science we discover and understand, on technologies we can create and manufacture, and on products our people can use and access. It needs innovation – both frugal and disruptive – and this discourse is to be imbibed by us in our system.”

He gave an example of the medical devices market, which is currently worth USD 7-8 billion in India. “Seventy five per cent of this demand is met by imports. However, considering the talent and potential India has, this market can be worth US$ 50 billion in India; and only innovation can achieve that,” he said.

Dr. Paul said that government programmes like Ayushman Bharat will be innovator’s delight and broaden the scope of innovation in public health delivery.

He also stressed on the idea of launching exchange programmes between medical institutions like AIIMS and IIT-Delhi on critical health issues, which can support immersion programmes of IIT Delhi.

Speaking at the inaugural session, Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao, Director, IIT Delhi, called upon the industry to collaborate with the academia. “The role of the industry primarily was to develop products, and that of the academia to focus on education and research. But that’s changing now. Academia is expected to develop products through innovation. Innovation has now been added to our mandate in a major way. Academia and industry need to collaborate on research and innovation on products which can benefit society.”

Prof. Rao added, “IIT Delhi is not only looking for collaborations with the industry but IIT Delhi also wants the industry to treat them as part of their innovation ecosystem.”

He also said that very soon there would be more diploma & certificate programmes for the industry that can be pursued online from IIT Delhi. This will open up opportunities for private companies to collaborate with research community of IIT Delhi.

He also thanked the government for expanding the scope of corporate spending under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) norms, “which will boost research funding in institutions like IIT Delhi and promote collaborations between the academia and the industry.”

Prof. Anurag S. Rathore, Dean, Corporate Relations, IIT Delhi, said, “A productive academic-industry relationship is the necessary foundation for the long term development of India. Academia needs to step up to demonstrate their scientific and engineering capabilities as well as their ability to channel their ability into focused development of products and technologies. Industry too needs to play a critical role in partnering on the co-development and later in commercialization of these outcomes. The objective of this year’s Industry Day is to demonstrate technical research capabilities, forge new collaborative relationships and further strengthen our existing partnerships.”

Industry Day 2019 witnessed a placement session organized exclusively for the institute’s Ph.D. students in which 17 companies interviewed more than 70 students.

The IIT Delhi research community showcased large number of research-based prototypes and posters to industry leaders who attended the event. 

The flagship event of the institute witnessed discussions and deliberations by industry experts and academia on five thematic sessions that include Clean Energy for Sustainable Economy and Environment, Sustainable Medical Technologies, Emerging Nano and Advanced Materials, Sustainable Environment, and Make in India.

The five thematic sessions and a session on “Women in Science” during Industry Day 2019 brought together more than 500 experts from Industry and 100 IIT Delhi faculty members.

North India’s “Angelina” – patient undergoes bilateral mastectomy and removal of ovaries to prevent breast and ovarian cancer

Ghaziabad, 19th September 2019 – Positive family support and best of medical advice helped a 37-year-old Riti from West Delhi’s Janakpuri take a very bold step which has changed her life forever. As a preventive step to avoid development of breast and ovarian cancer, she underwent voluntary bilateral mastectomy and removal of her ovaries.

Presenting her case to spread awareness about this unusual situation, Max Healthcare, Vaishali, organised a press conference today to highlight the fact that the stakes are very high in those detected with a mutation in their genes.

Genetic mutation of BRCA 1 (gene associated with breast cancer) running in her family, her elder sister was recently diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada and her mother had already had two encounters with breast cancer once in 1997 and then in the other breast in 2007.

With this background, Riti was advised to undergo gene test to determine if she was carrying a mutation in a gene associated with breast cancer. After consultation with Dr Geeta Kadayaprath, breast surgeon and Dr Amit Verma, Genetics consultants, she underwent genetic testing and as luck would have it, her results were positive for BRCA1 mutation. The results were affirmative that she had around 80% of developing breast cancer and 50-60% chances of developing ovarian cancer in her lifetime.

“Only 10% cases of breast cancer are due to genetic mutation. While it is rare, we are seeing quite a few patients with high risk familial cancers. The fear of what a mutation in the gene may portend drives many from actually undergoing the test. There is still a social stigma attached to cancer and there are many who don’t want to know their mutation status. Timely action in those with the mutation is the best chance against cancer developing. It is very well known that the journey after developing cancer can be tough with uncertain outcomes. Fortunately, in this case, the elder sister took timely measures to get her younger sister checked for the mutation in BRAC1 gene. It is important for people to be aware and take all possible steps to prevent the disease from happening. Knowing is empowering. Nothing is more important than leading a full, healthy life.” said Dr. Geeta Kadayaprath, Director, Surgical Oncology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali.

Epitomizing the essence of Nidarr Hamesha, Riti has embarked on a unique journey with the staunch support of her sister, mother and her husband, by demonstrating rare courage to undergo preventive surgery to reduce the risk of breast cancer by upto 95%. There is a rise in number of such cases with high risk of familial cancer due to possible gene mutation, putting one at a very high risk of developing cancer.  

“When a mutation in the BRCA 1 gene comes positive, the chances of developing Breast Cancer are 80% and Ovarian and Fallopian Tube Cancer is 50-60%, in the lifetime (80 years) of the patient. Since the tests of Riti revealed an ovarian cyst, the reasons to get the surgery done became even more critical. By removal of just ovaries, risk of ovarian cancer decreases by 80 percent n breast by 56 percent n total reduction of risk of cancer by just BSO is 77 percent. And in her case because we did prophylactic bilateral mastectomy also, we reduced the risk of cancer to 95 percent.” Said Dr Kanika Gupta, Associate Director, Oncology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali

“Three weeks ago, I suddenly developed pain in the lower abdomen and upon investigation, the results revealed a cyst in the ovary. Upon further insistence from my elder sister who had already undergone mastectomy surgery after being diagnosed with breast cancer, I had agreed to get my genes tested. Dr Geeta kept me with two options, either to ‘wait and watch’ with frequent imaging studies and clinical examinations until the progression of breast cancer, or to go ahead of the disease by voluntarily undergoing surgery to avoid any chances of breast cancer. With the assurance of the doctors, I preferred to undergo removal of my breasts, fallopian tubes, ovaries along with breast reconstruction surgery.” Said Ms Riti, Patient who underwent preventive breast cancer surgery.
