Sri Sathya Sai University and TDU join forces to combat cancer and diabetes

The partnership Aims to Develop Holistic Health Solutions Through Integrative Nutritional Research Combining Ayurveda and Modern Science

New Delhi: To address major health challenges, Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence (SSSUHE) and The University of Trans-Disciplinary Health Sciences and Technology (TDU) have partnered to combat cancer and diabetes through integrative health solutions.
This collaboration, inspired by Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai, aims to leverage the strengths of both institutions to advance scientific knowledge and improve global health outcomes.
The newly signed MOU between SSSUHE and TDU establishes a robust framework for cooperation, encompassing academic exchanges, joint research projects, and the shared use of facilities. A notable aspect of this partnership is the development of teaching modules that emphasize human values such as ethics, compassion, and empathy, which will be integrated into both undergraduate and postgraduate education.
Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai, the Founder of SSSUHE, expressed, “For Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence and Sri Madhusudan Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research collaborating with Trans-Disciplinary Health Sciences and Technology is an honour and a privilege. This MOU is more than just a list of clauses being exchanged; it is a platform for collaboration between the East and West, bringing together diverse knowledge systems and mindsets to provide the greatest care possible for patients and society as a whole.”
A central focus of this partnership is nutrition research aimed at developing innovative treatments for non-communicable diseases. By blending ancient Ayurvedic principles with contemporary research, the collaboration seeks to bring holistic health solutions to the forefront of medical practice.
Dr. Darshan Shankar, Vice Chancellor of TDU, highlighted, “While TDU has been around for 30-35 years, the work that has been done in the last ten years in the areas of healthcare, education, and nutrition via Sri Madhusudan Sai is an example of what only love can accomplish. While there are many different knowledge systems in the world, including indigenous practices, we have mostly been using Western systems. Nonetheless, we have a vast array of native systems from many nations, including Africa and India. The signing of this MoU will increase the momentum of progressing this ideology.”
