Minhaj University Lahore prides itself in being persistently dedicated to the pursuit of endeavors promoting research and innovation to bring about a positive, sustainable, and meaningful impact upon the world. Integral to our core mission our commitment to establish and nurture an innovative culture of research and entrepreneurship amongst our faculty and students. Our goal is to establish a supporting infrastructure through ORIC that magnifies the pace towards broadening the horizons of science, technology, and innovation, by increasing awards of extramural grants for researchers, conducting capacity building activities, and initiating policies to increase the quantity, and improve the quality of research output from Minhaj University Lahore while simultaneously generating support to commercialize this research. I'm particularly excited to announce the expansion of ORIC to include a Business Incubation Center to enrich an entrepreneurial ethos in faculty and students alike in the university. I look forward to supporting the exhilarating world of research and discovery through ORIC MUL in the future.
