The second Inter-Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Research Synergy Day will be held at the Health Sciences Campus, Kochi on May 4, 2018. This day will serve as a forum to present all ideas, innovations and research breakthroughs that have come about as a result of collaboration between doctors, engineers, molecular biologists, computer and data scientists and other specialists. Moreover, it will be an opportunity for researchers in all these fields to interact, brainstorm and initiate joint and collaborative work.

This is a sequel to the first synergy day that was held about one and half years ago, which resulted in a number of successful publications, collaborations, and innovations in fields of cardiology, neuroscience, urology, endocrinology, ophthalmology and Healthcare data science.

For this year's Research Synergy Day, the theme is Digital Health which includes engineering in medicine, mobile and wireless health, bioinformatics and systems biology related to medicine, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in medicine, etc. This is aligned with our University's Mission of compassion driven research as said by our Chancellor Amma for our institution of Eminence status.

The day will begin with a keynote from a world-renowned Physician-cum-Data Scientist from a prestigious international university.
