ULAB is improving its research profile by creating a cadre of trained and active researchers. Hence from this year (2018), OFR has started to develop a pool of young researchers. This pool includes young faculty members of the university and some promising students. The faculty member will be act as the research mentor to the students. OFR also plans to arrange regular workshops for the pool to motivate students towards research. Moreover, OFR will encourage the grant awardees to include the pool members into their research. Currently, OFR is offering this young researchers database as an on-demand service.
