It has been a very interesting and exciting journey for me to go through all stages - from a faculty member to the Provost of the University. It is also a future plan of the NU to introduce tuition fees as part of the University's income. Because you are now a Provost, you also take care of the research processes at NU.
Obviously, not everyone will become a researcher, but knowing the process will help them in all kinds of professions they take - from engineering to public service, and hopefully some of them will become successful researchers in the future .

At the end of the event, all workshop participants had the opportunity to ask questions to the.

Kalachi Sleeping Syndrome Outbreak Investigation
Kalachi and the neighboring village of Krasnogorsk (about 450 kilometers northwest of Astana on the Ishim River), which currently has a combined population of about 600-650 inhabitants, have been affected by the mysterious sleeping syndrome since late 2012. In October 2015, research teams from Nazarbayev University School of Medicine, in collaboration with the Scientific-Research Institute of Radiation Medicine and Ecology (Ministry of Health and Social Development), initiated an outbreak. Fishing, eating fish and swimming in the Ishim River are not associated with Kalachi sleep syndrome.
Research Management and Administration”
The workshop is the second in the series of seminars that will be held as part of the Newton - Al-Farabi Partnership Program at the NUGSE. Workshop participants had a privilege to work with Tara Mitchell, Canada and Amos Fatakun, UK as trainers of the workshop. The roundtable was a result of discussions initiated by the Women's Initiatives at NU (WIN) network organized by interim Provost Dr.
Through the WIN networking breakfast, it became clear that there are many members of the NU community who are interested in Gender and Women's Studies as a research area. Jenifer Lewis (GSB), Anna CohenMiller (GSE) and Gwen McEvoy (SHSS) decided to host the roundtable to bring scholars together to discuss their shared research interests. With the support of the Provost's office and the coordinating support of Aigerim Shaikhina, Teaching Assistant in the Communication Department, the roundtable participants achieved the goal of sharing ideas, finding collaborators and building momentum for this emerging area of research at NU.
Representatives from most of NU's schools were present, including engineering, medicine, humanities and social sciences, education, public policy, entrepreneurship and the Foundation Year program. The first Research Roundtable on Gender and Women's Studies was held on Friday, May 20, 2016. The purpose of the roundtable was to bring together members of the NU community who are currently researching or interested in research in any area. related to gender and/or women's studies.
The discussion mainly focused on understanding what research has been done and what is going on at NU.
