Natoli Engineering’s Yasar Shaikh, International Business Development Manager, recently visited the University of Karachi in Pakistan to deliver technical training to a capacity crowd of over 200 people.
Attendees of Natoli’s Basics of Tablet Troubleshooting course included all members of the university’s Department of Pharmaceutics faculty as well as faculty from several other universities in Karachi.
Natoli Engineering has a strong partnership with the University of Karachi, where the company established the Natoli Tablet Compression Lab in the Department of Pharmaceutics. This lab was established for the purposes of creating awareness of tablet compression among students and to help prepare them for their professional careers. Natoli Engineering also gifted the lab with an NP-RD10 single-station R&D tablet press.
Dr. Iqbal Azhar, Dean of the university’s Faculty of Pharmacy, kicked off the event by expressing appreciation for the support of Natoli Engineering President Dale Natoli and acknowledging Mr. Natoli’s interest in academic development in Pakistan and his contributions to the university.
The University of Karachi is one of the most respected institutions in Pakistan, and many who work in Pakistan’s pharmaceutical industry are graduates of the university.
