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 Federal Minister  ...   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..
