OU Launches $9 Million Research Collaboration with Peruvian University

The University of Oklahoma has entered an agreement to develop a $9 million program of joint research with Universidad Nacional de San Agustín, one of Peru’s largest and oldest public research universities.

Tomás Díaz de la Rubia, OU vice president for research and partnerships, last week signed a cooperative agreement with UNSA to launch the program, which will focus on the impact of climate change – particularly its effects on Peru’s Arequipa region – as well as research aimed at identifying the socio-economic drivers leading to high incidence of diseases such as cancer and diabetes among the population of Arequipa, and at improving disease diagnostics and treatments that incorporate advanced technologies like artificial intelligence.
