IFS Blog.. 30th September 2014.. 40 years in the company of a remarkable scientist.. This autumn, Professor Dr Atta-ur-Rahman reaches the conclusion of his tenure as a Trustee (2007-14) and his active contribution to the governance of IFS.. As we contemplate an International Foundation for Science without the regular, kind and generous support we have enjoyed from Atta-ur-Rahman, we also reflect on the journey we have travelled in the last 40 years from 1974 until 2014.. Read more.. At the conclusion of a Trustee’s tenure we take the opportunity to celebrate the contribution made and, as a token of our appreciation, we present a stone carved in the runic alphabet which was used during ancient times in Scandinavia.. The runic inscription references the founding president of the International Foundation for Science, Sven Brohult, whom together with Abdus Salam, Roger Revelle and Robert Marshak signed the IFS Charter in May 1972.. This very stone will shortly be making its way to Karachi, as a tiny contribution to the many accolades that Atta-ur-Rahman has received in his on-going career.. Just two years after the IFS Charter was signed, and with a Ph.. D.. in organic chemistry from Cambridge University, Atta-ur-Rahman became the 139th person to receive an IFS research grant.. In those days it was possible to be awarded four IFS grants and Atta-ur-Rahman was awarded grants in 1976; 1977; 1979; 1980 for work in the field of natural products around the synthesis of reserpine analogues and indoloquinolizidines from harmaline and harmine.. Atta-ur-Rahman's work in this field had begun with his doctoral thesis on ’Synthetic Studies in the Indole Alkaloid Field’ under the supervision of Dr.. J.. Harley Mason.. Since then he has gone on to isolate and elucidate the structure of bioactive substances from medicinal plants as well as marine plants and animals continued throughout a long and distinguished research career.. Professor Atta-ur-Rahman is responcible for the discovery of several hundred new/novel natural products, many of which have exhibited exciting biological activities including anti-oxidant, anti-epileptic, anti-leishmania, anti-AIDS, immunomodulating, antiasthamatic, analgesic, nematicidal and anti-cancer activities.. Professor Atta-ur-Rahman’s contribution to science does not end with his research or his discoveries.. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society, London.. He was awarded the UNESCO Science Prize (1999).. He has honorary doctorate degrees from many universities including from his own Cambridge University and Coventry University.. He is Honorary Life Fellow of Kings College, Cambridge and was most recently awarded the prestigious Friendship Award by China.. Prof.. Atta-ur-Rahman was Pakistan’s  ...   facilities, or championing of the availability of Massive Open Online Courses to colleagues in and beyond Pakistan through the integrated platform (.. www.. lej4learning.. com.. pk.. ).. Indeed, our own Approach 3 in the IFS 10-Year strategy owes its name ‘Contributing Innovation’ and much of its context to Professor Atta-ur-Rahman’s wise counsel and advice and his unceasing efforts to unleash the creative potential of young scientists.. Atta, all at IFS salute your huge contribution to the future of science, and look forward to working with you in the shared contexts in which we will find ourselves together again going forwards..

From time to time IFS gives awards for excellence in research to outstanding IFS Grantees.. Grantees must be nominated for these awards, but may not nominate themselves.. Further details in the following pages:.. » Awards.. The Pugwash Conferences take their name from the location of the first meeting, which was held in 1957 in the village of Pugwash, Nova Scotia, Canada.. The stimulus for that gathering was a manifesto issued in 1955 by Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein -- and signed also by Max Born, Percy Bridgman, Leopold Infeld, Frederic Joliot-Curie, Herman Muller, Linus Pauling, Cecil Powell, Joseph Rotblat, and Hideki Yukawa -- which called upon scientists of all political persuasions to assemble to discuss the threat posed to civilization by the advent of thermonuclear weapons.. Since then the Nobel Prize winning conference series of scientists meeting in private as individuals, rather than as representatives of governments or institutions has expanded its remit to seeking cooperative solutions for global problems.. The 1965 meeting first proposed the creation of IFS.. DISTRIBUTION OF IFS RESEARCH GRANTS..

  • Title: IFS - International Foundation for Science - Partners
    Descriptive info: Long-term Collaborating Partners.. Affiliated Organisations.. Sponsors.. At IFS, we value greatly working together with others.. We continue to strengthen collaboration with a variety of partner organisations, both to award research grants and organise thematic and research skills development workshops and other capability enhancing support.. Collaborations aim to boost the capability of young researchers and ensure that the research conducted meets both prescribed ethical and quality standards.. Recent efforts undertaken with partners are increasing capability to formulate, implement and evaluate science research, and improving ability to manage research grants, and organise workshops and scientific meetings.. Types of partners:.. For its operations, IFS depends on funds contributed by other organisations, both those having primarily a scientific agenda and those with a development agenda.. Since its establishment in 1972, IFS has received contributions from hundreds of organisations, government agencies, private foundations, research councils and private companies.. A list of those contributing during the last 5 years is here:.. IFS Donors.. Long-term collaborating partners.. With a number of organisations IFS  ...   local research or other organisations involved in sharing their resources or knowledge, hosting at their venues or working with the logistics.. Often giving their services in kind, these organisations are essential for the smooth functioning of IFS.. IFS Affiliated Organisations.. When IFS was created in 1972 this was done with the cooperation of 15 Scientific Academies, known at that time as ‘Member Organisations’.. Interest to participate in IFS grew quickly among Academies, Research Councils, Universities, Governmental Agencies, and others around the world, and this number stands today at 134 organisations, and they are now known as Affiliated Organisations.. They have a consultative role for IFS today, contributing intelligence and allowing us to better understand local scientific landscapes in order to provide the most appropriate support.. List of IFS Affiliated Organisations.. As a not-for-profit organisation with limited resources, IFS greatly appreciates donations and sponsorships of products and services of the commercial kind – these allow us to better serve the scientific community in developing countries..
