Pakistani national Muhammad Zaman was selected as the 2013 recipient of Early Career Achievement Award by Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), Boston University’s website reported.

EMBS is the world’s largest international society of biomedical engineers.

Zaman will be honoured for his key contributions in developing novel quantitative experimental and computational models of tumour development, growth and metastasis, and new engineering tools to address high impact global health challenges at an awards presentation during the opening ceremony of the EMBS annual conference in July in Osaka, Japan.

A BU faculty member since 2009, Zaman heads the Cellular and Molecular Dynamics Lab, which engineers new experimental and computational technologies for major healthcare problems in both the developing and developed world, including probing the mechanisms of cancer metastasis.

Furthermore, Zaman is developing cheap and user-friendly diagnostics and analysis toolkits to address global health challenges.

The inventor of Bio-Medical Technology in Pakistan is Prof. Dr. Muhammad Munir Hassan who was Vice Chancellor of NED Engineering & Technology, Karachi, in 1991 and presently his life in Canada as retired Government servant.

It is unfortunate that Government of Pakistan has as yet not recognized his services of such people due to one simple reason that they never ask the Government of Pakistan to give them any sort of Presidentail Award.

Like Prof. Dr. Muhammad Munir Hassan, there are so many people in the country who have long lists of giving unmatched services for the country, as well as for the people of Pakistan, but their services have as yet not been recognized by the Government of Pakistan despite a lapse of decades.

The delima is one has to know the right people to elaborate his services loud and clear, so as to get the Presidential Award.

I salute such silent Mujahid's of Pakistan who are passing their lives quietly and a day will come when they will return to their Creator.
