Happy Nowruz and New Iranian Year

 | Post date: 2019/03/18 | 

Originating in Iran’s ancient history, Nowruz is celebrated by more than 300 million people worldwide on March 21, the day of the Spring Equinox, which marks the sun’s crossing of the Equator and the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Nowruz is as one of the oldest and most cherished festivities celebrated for at least 3,000 years.


Nowruz is a messenger of peace, friendship, benevolence for the humankind and admiration for nature not only for Iranians, but for several nations and tribes who adorn this ancient festivity and celebrate it. Nowruz is an opportunity for rethinking, restarting and remaking. Nowruz is the spiritual heritage of humankind and the Iranians will be most delighted if the world nations enjoy this heritage and take advantage of it. Nowruz is the message of peace and friendship by the Iranians for the whole world.

Nowruz (Norouz) in Persian means "New Day". It is the beginning of the year for the peoples of Iran. The International Day of Nowruz was registered on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity on February 23, 2010.

We at the Iran University of Medical Sciences would like to express our best wishes for the New Year and the advent of spring and Nowruz to all Iranians, our staff and students and visitors of our site and all the peace-loving people around the world. On this International Day of Nowruz, we express hope that all people can use the occasion to reflect on the beauty of nature, the promise of spring and the power of culture to build peace.

Happy 22nd of Bahman (Iranian Islamic revolution)

 | Post date: 2019/02/10 | 

The Iranian Islamic revolution refers to events involving the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty under Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, who was supported by the United States and its eventual replacement with an Islamic republic under the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the revolution, supported by various Islamic organizations and Iranian student movements.
 against the Shah commenced in October 1977, developing into a campaign of civil resistance that was religious-based and intensified in January 1978. Between August and December 1978, strikes and demonstrations paralyzed the country. The Shah left Iran for exile on January 16, 1979, as the last Persian monarch, leaving his duties to a regency council and an opposition-based prime minister. Ayatollah Khomeini was invited back to Iran by the government and returned to Tehran to a greeting by several million Iranians. The royal reign collapsed shortly after on February 11 when guerrillas and rebel troops overwhelmed troops loyal to the Shah in armed street fighting, bringing Khomeini to official power. 
Iran voted by national referendum to become the 
Islamic Republic on April 1, 1979, and to approve a new theocratic-republican constitution whereby Khomeini became Supreme Leader of the country, in December 1979. The revolution was unusual for the surprise it created throughout the world: it lacked many of the customary causes of revolution (defeat at war, a financial crisis, peasant rebellion, or disgruntled military), occurred in a nation that was enjoying relatively good material wealth and prosperity, produced profound change at great speed, was massively popular, resulted in the exile of many Iranians, and replaced a pro-Western semi-absolute monarchy  with an anti-Western authoritarian theocracy based on the concept of Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists.

Iran’s retinal treatment technology equals developed states

 | Post date: 2018/12/15 | 
Tehran, IRNA - With the new methods now employed in the field of eye diseases and retinal disorders, Iran is in the same place as the advanced countries of the world, said the head of Ophthalmology Department at Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS) on Friday.

Retina is a light-sensitive neural tissue that forms a thin layer inside the posterior part of the eye. It transforms the light into neural signals and sends them to the brain. So the retina plays a key role in the visual process.

keypartofvision is affected by diseases such as diabetes, eye injuries, or age-related disorders that require immediate treatment.

Previously, retinal disorders treatment was difficult, but with the scientific advances and the development of new technology-based firms (NTBF), it is becoming easier, said Khalil Qasemi Falavarjani who is also an associate professor of ophthalmology at IUMS.

He added there have been many advances in curing retinal disorders in terms of both diagnosis and treatment worldwide.

“Although a part of these findings cannot be applied clinically, they pave the way for future improvements.”

Qasemi Falavarjani said one of these findings pertaining to diagnostic methods applied for retinal diseases is a new imaging method which provides the doctor with diagnostic ability equivalent to retinal sampling. It also helps the physician find the causes of the disease.

“Being non-invasive, new imaging techniques eliminate the need for contrast
agent, and demonstrate vascular images and their changes by image analysis procedures.”

The new non-invasive technique is fast, he said, adding that wide-field imaging is another imaging method.

In traditional ways, 'we could see a limited area of the retina, or at most we would assemble a variety of images, sticking them together and making a final one with spending a great deal of time', he added.

“But new approaches provide us with an area twice as large as the area provided in previous techniques. It helps us easily diagnose and treat illnesses that have occurred on both sides of the retina.”

Removing the distortion in optic imaging and getting very precise images of even one cell is another feature of this technology, he said, adding, “Previously, we used to cut the cell and examine it under a microscope, but the new technology is so precise that we can examine the cells also.”

Qasemi Falavarjani suggested gene therapy as another therapeutic method, adding that the first retinal treatment through gene therapy was approved by the US last year, and is now being applied.

“This method is quite new, but we hope it will be applied for congenital or acquired retinal diseases in the near future.”

He noted that there are some other techniques that remove the necessity for surgeries. For instance, computer chips or artificial retina are placed for blind people giving them the ability to see one light.

“This technique is already being applied in Iran, but unfortunately it is very expensive and we hope to have new versions with lower prices in the coming years.”

Facilitating the process of surgery, some other ophthalmic surgical technologies help the surgeon see three-dimensional images, the ophthalmologist added.

Many of these techniques are applied every day In Iran and in some other cases 'we are negotiating with some countries to import the techniques' and equipment, he concluded.

Collaboration in Translational Research for a Sustainable Future

Scheduled for Kish Island on October 19-21, 2018, the Forum sets out to craft a way forward for translational research to promote innovation and solutions in support of prosperity and a sustainable future. Today, countries in the Middle East devote significant effort to research and innovation but, in contrast to the EU, their agendas are fragmented, and mostly with limited impact on key societal issues. At focus here is working out common initiatives to enable universities, researchers and key stakeholders in the two regions to engage in effective collaboration in support of future prosperity and sustainable development. Part of the task has to do with strategy how to build a joint platform for addressing climate change, the restoration of ecosystems, resilient and dynamic cities, sound governance and the engagement of people in support of sustainable lifestyle and a circular economy. Meanwhile, in-depth discussions will aim to lay the basis for cross-border match making of research and innovation activities in four areas; urban Issues and solutions, water, renewable energy, and non-communicable disease (NCDs).
