The Supreme Board of Trustees of Nazarbayev University (NU), Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, and the Nazarbayev Foundation recently convened a meeting with Kazakh Prime Minister, Olzhas Bektenov.

One such project involves developing an effective cancer treatment. Dos Sarbassov, the general director of the National Laboratory Astana (NLA), shared details about his team’s work on this project. He reported encouraging results from the initial phases 1 and 2 studies of the drug.

The meeting also included a presentation on an accelerator for research on water purification and hydrogen generation, which was created in collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the United States. Bektenov laid out specific tasks aimed at integrating science and production, as well as expanding access to scientific infrastructure for the Kazakh research community.
