Reddy Asks Stanford University to Open Hyderabad Campus

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, who is on a visit to the US, has asked Stanford University to set up an offshore campus in Hyderabad, promising to provide all necessary infrastructure.

The chief minister made the request after the signing of an MoU between Stanford University, the Andhra government and Satyam Computers' EMRI (Emergency Management and Research Institute) in California Thursday.

Under the MoU, EMRI and Stanford University Medical Centre will come together to prepare professionals for emergency care in India.

Reddy met Burt McMurtry, chairman of the board of trustees at the Stanford University, and briefed him about the state, its potential and fast growing sectors like IT, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.

McMurtry agreed in principle to set up an institute in the state and assured to provide affordable healthcare to the poor, said a statement from the chief minister's office in Hyderabad.

Satyam Computers' chairman B. Ramalinga Raju was also present.

Under the MoU, Stanford University, one of the world's leading research and teaching institutes and EMRI, a non-profit group based in Hyderabad will train India's new corps of paramedics.

In addition to training paramedics, the Stanford group will teach paramedic educators in India who can carry on the work of instructing the next generation of advanced emergency medical technicians.

According to EMRI CEO Venkat Changavalli, EMRI - launched in 2005 - has responded to 250,000 emergencies and saved more than 10,000 lives in little more than a year.

Stanford School of Medicine dean Philip Pizzo said the new partnership is part of a major effort, called the Stanford Challenge, in which the university works to improve global health by reaching out to other parts of the world.

"We are committed to transforming the lives of those in our communities - locally, nationally and globally," he said.

After winding up a four-day visit to the US, Reddy, along with other officials, has left for Singapore.
