2. Foundation
The centre was developed from a consortium of research groups in the Faculty of Associated Medical Sciences, Khon Kaen University aiming to enhance both basic and applied research and development. The final goal of the consortium was to produce self sustainable science and technology based upon local wisdom to solve local health problems, with the emphasis on end products that could be widely used and internationally. Thailand relies tremendously on imports of medical diagnostic products. Since the economic crisis in 1997, the government has encouraged the initiation of strategic activities promoting exports and reducing imports to revitalize the Thai economy. It is believed that a self sustainable economy would solve the problems. Based upon basic knowledge gained locally on local health problems, it is anticipated that targeted medical diagnostic kits could be produced and finally manufactured in the country, reducing imported products and leading to self sustainability.
With the good track records of the research groups at the Faculty of Associated Medical Sciences, a research and development centre entitled “The Centre for Research and Development of Medical Diagnostic Laboratories (CMDL)” was founded in 2002. This was initiated by Khon Kaen University with a seeding fund and with full support (4-5 millions baht/year) for five years starting in 2003. The centre emphasizes four areas of research and development consisting of four projects as follows:
