Current State Of Science & Technology In Iran

In general, the state of Science & Technology in Iran is Developed.

In fact, if you leave out Israel, the state of Science & Technology in Iran is the most advanced in the Middle East, South Asia & South East Asia Region.

But research is mostly limited to the Public SectorUniversities & Government Facilities.

Apart from Medical Research – that can be easily translated into Medical or Surgical Practices – very little Research is translated to the Private Sector (generating Economic benefits / Wealth).
Pharmaceutical / Biotechnology Industry is exemplary in Translational Research.

Biochemical Research, Nanotechnology Research, Medical Research, Nuclear Research (which must be limited to Nuclear Power Plants and not as another threat to the World), Aerospace Research, Robotics, Microprocessor Manufacturing, Super-Computers

– Iranians are doing advanced research, but only in the Public Sector.

What seem most promising –

  • Iranians are talented and
  • Research facilities seem to be in place.

To become an Economic Powerhouse, Iran needs High Technology Companies – which – its state of research indicates – it is capable of – although yet to materialize.

I am willing to provide guidance for:

Development of High Tech Industries in Iran.

If Iran is only the 9th country to put domestic-built Satellite into Orbit [Public Sector], why can’t an Iranian Firm build a Commercial Aircraft [Private Sector]?

Different body of Expertise (& Outlook), Institutional Structures & Policies are required for

Development of Research & Engineering Based High Tech Industries [Translational Research – turning research into Market Products] :


  • e.g., Knowledge of International Market.


  • Research is not just about publishing Papers and dreaming of the glory of winning Prizes & Awards! Translating Research into Industrial Products and making your country wealthier is equal in “glory”!
    • Required Outlook: How do I incorporate my research into an Industrial Product?

Institutional Structures

  • Venture Capital Firms and other Financial Institutions that are bold enough to invest in Companies that bring “research – generated products” to Markets.
    • In many Developing Nations, where there aren’t many High Technology Firms and not a lot of success stories, Investors struggle to believe in success of such Firms.


  • e.g., Policies that encourage Entrepreneurship


Israel is a very good example of a country that has mastered the art of turning “Research” into “High Tech Industries”.

Iran can, and should learn from Israel.

Here is a nice book to start with:

Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle by Dan Senor, Saul Singer [Amazon]


I, myself, is very excited about winning Prizes, Awards, Honors! But what excites me equally is putting my knowledge of Sciences to practice.

Here are a few of my Articles:


Britain In Realization [12.17.14] : Engineering In Britain


Engineering In Britain

Engineering Education

“The Science Museum is hosting a new engineering exhibition –  aimed at 11-15 year olds opened today and will run for the next three years. Engineer Your Future features a variety of objects and interactive games and was described by a museum spokesperson as “an exhibition about careers that doesn’t feel about careers”.

The exhibition includes a game to design a Mars rover, a 3D printed city onto which a game is projected and challenges to deliver luggage in an airport and run trains on time … advice also available about how to pursue a career in engineering or take up further studies.”

Large Scale Engineering

BBC Theme Park

“The new elevator technology, nicknamed Multi, can go sideways as well as up and down and will begin testing in 2016.
The innovative new elevator uses magnetic levitation (maglev) technology”

Engineering Prizes, Awards, Honors

Tim Berners Lee, Louis Pouzin, Robert Kahn,Vint Cerf and Marc Andreessen have been awarded the first Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering in recognition of their work on the internet and the web.”

Computer Reimagined [Architecture; UI; Materials]

“By 2008, Hawking’s hand was too weak to use the clicker. 

… “cheek switch”. Attached to his glasses, it could detect, via a low infrared beam, when Hawking tensed his cheek muscle. 

By 2011, he managed only about one or two words per minute

designed by Words Plus. It provided him with a keyboard on the screen and a basic word-prediction algorithm. A cursor automatically scanned across the keyboard by row or by column and he could select a character by moving his cheek to stop the cursor.

Hawking now uses an adaptive word predictor from London startup SwiftKey which allows him to select a word after typing a letter, whereas Hawking’s previous system required him to navigate to the bottom of his user interface and select a word from a list.
But He was used to predicting his own word predictor.” 

The new version of Hawking’s user interface includes contextual menus that provide Hawking with various shortcuts to speak, search or email

“The idea is to have a camera pointed at Stephen’s face to pick up not just his cheek movements but other facial movements,” says Wood. “He could move his jaw sideways, up and down, and drive a mouse and even potentially drive his wheelchair.

a joystick that attaches to Hawking’s chin and allows him to navigate his wheelchair independently.”

[I wish I could engineer a better and more suitable User Interface for Dr. Stephen Hawking.]

DIY / Lego / “Automata Set”


Virtual Reality

Digital Manufacturing

Smart Car

Physical Digital Computing /
Internet of Things

“A £1 million government pot has been awarded to seven startups working on internet of things projects to help solve problems facing UK businesses.

Winners include a company working on sensors for digital farms, a compact air quality monitoring system and a project using data to make cycling safer in towns and cities. The seven companies are all based in either London or Cambridge and will share the £1m grant provided by the government-funded Innovate UK programme.”


Academia – Industry Collaboration

The new UCL East campus will focus on technology and engineering

“University College London (UCL) is to build a huge campus on the Olympic Park in a bid to inspire research in technology and engineering.

… the university says it will forge “new connections” between researchers and businesses while creating a space for “radical innovation, new insights and new industries” in the UK.”

[Next: A “Silicon Valley” – “kind of” Tech & Entrepreneurial Hub – somewhere near London!]

High Speed Internet for All


“the company is taking a novel approach towards overcoming the usual need for cables. It is doing this by wirelessly connecting small mobile antennas to suitable macro sites.

The technology has already been tested in the village of Sebergham in Cumbria. All 129 households and small businesses within the village can now receive data and voice connectivity thanks to just three meshed antennas that have been installed across the town.”

BioEngineering & Translational Medicine

“The £125 spit test kit is not a diagnostic test, but instead identifies genes that are associated with inherited conditions including cystic fibrosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and sickle cell anaemia.” 


Smart City

City of Dundee

“The title recognises the design innovations Dundee has contributed to the world, including aspirin, biomedical research which has led to hundreds of new cancer drugs, comics including the Beano and Dandy, orange marmalade, and video games including Lemmings and Grand Theft Auto. 

The city’s waterfront is also undergoing a 30-year, £1bn regeneration project including the V&A Dundee museum of design.”

“In order to kick-start its smart-city programme, the government ran a competition last year and the winner, Glasgow, was given £24m to spend on smart technologies.

Some of the money (in Glasgow) may go on using big data … energy efficiency … solve crime …  intelligent lighting” 


Bristol won the £3m runner-up prize 

Bristol plans, to open up a wealth of government data that can be turned into useful apps and services.”

Scientific Approach To Engineering

Scientific Approach To Engineering

I have never taken a single course in Aerospace Engineering.
But I am capable of single-handedly building a passenger Aircraft as big as Boeing and more advanced than anything the world has ever seen.
Moreover, building an Aircraft is simple for me.
How is it possible?
For me, building an Aircraft is utilizing “a few” basic laws of Physics and “a few” fundamental principles of Chemistry (Materials for Aircraft).
For Aerospace Engineers, building an Aircraft is complex and, surely out of reach for any single individual Engineer.
  • Because the Aerospace Engineer learns about “Jet Engines” and loses himself in details. (He doesn’t see that only a few basic Principles of Physics and Chemistry govern the design of a Jet Engine.) 


  • The Aerospace Engineer learns to calculate the wind pressure required to keep the Aircraft flying – and loses himself in details – on the size and speed. (He doesn’t see that a few basic Laws of Physics and Chemistry is enough to calculate and design the wings of an Aircraft and the amount of pressure required to support the weight of the Aircraft.)
  • The modern control system (built out of complex Software) that a modern Pilot uses to guide himself while running a plane – is out of reach of any single Aerospace Engineer. For me – designing and building the Software is simple.
This is how “being the best Scientist makes me the best Engineer”.
In brief:  
Physics and Chemistry – simplifies the world with a few basic principles (these are the laws of nature, the ultimate possibilites). If you learn those principles and you have enough imagination – you can build anything you can think of – from Passenger Aircraft and Satellite to High Speed Rail and Electric Car.

Scientific Approach To Engineering
Learning the ultimate possibilities through Science and building the ultimate Engineering Machines
I am more of a scientist – a Theory / Model Builder. And that makes me the best Engineer.
Whenever I try to learn something, I learn everything that can ever be learned about the subject – even knowledge that is yet to be discovered (of course by thinking, because everything that can ever be learned about a subject” is not yet documented anywhere in an organized way). 

So, when I am learning Robotics

I organize – everything that can ever be learned about Robotics – from the perspective of Physics and Computer Science (by thinking).

Physics defines the rules that the world follows – you can’t go beyond those rules. So to understand the ultimate Physical possibilities of Robotics – you have to think from the perspective of Physics.
I build the ultimate “Model”s of the world.

Researchers work on building better“Model”s of parts of the world, try to “improve upon”current devices. So a researcher working on – say, Optogenetics, asks specific and limited questions – 

what other protein respond to light? 
What other wavelength of light can we use to control neurons?

While, I ask general questions (the ultimate possibilities)– 

What are the ways we can “control” neurons? Shining light from outside and building sensors (out of protein) that respond on neurons is one way.

How far can we go with Optogenetics? Creating a Magnetic Field is another way to control parts of the brain.

This is my approach – I try to learn everything that can ever be learned – because Science sets the ultimate possibilities

That’s how being the Best Scientist makes me the Best Engineer.

Manhattan Scale Research” in BioSciences, Translational Medicine and BioEngineering

I’ll soon start “Manhattan Scale Research” Project in Medicine and BioEngineering – that will define the frontiers of Healthcare, Medicine and related fields – like Environment, Energy (Fuel; Photosynthesis inspired Solar Cells?) & Sustainability, Agriculture.

  • Cancer, Ebola, Parkinson’s, AIDS, Alzheimer’s,
  • Disabilities and losses (Eyesight loss; Limb Amputee, etc. <- Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine. We can replace with Mechanical / Physical parts as long as we our Stem Cell / Regenerative Medicine Tech is not advanced enough – but remember – Biology – is the ultimate technology.
My Guiding Principle: 
Restore the Normal
(as opposed to the “Artificial” – Mechanical devices or Pills or Drugs)
– possibly through:
  • Stem Cell / Regenerative Medicine
  • Gene Therapy.
As long as we can’t make headway in “Stem Cell – Gene Therapy”,
we can do away with “Drugs and Devices” (“Artificial” means),

but the ultimate future of Medicine lies in Biology.

Excited about the CRISPR DNA-editing technique? or Stem Cell Therapy? You are on the right track! Because that’s the future!
My Plan is to build
  • Medical / Scientific / Engineering Equipments (that would be required in my own research) and
  • Sell and use the profit to fund my research / further work.
So only limited funding would be required in the first phase – and from that point on self – funding / reinvesting.
Equipments would require continuous innovations and improvements. For example,
  • Gene Sequencers (Bringing down the cost of Gene sequencing of a single Genome to several hundred dollars or maybe $100.)
  • Robots that automate much of Experimental work. [Consider: Combinatorial Chemistry – parallel reactions]
Another line of products (lots of innovations)
  • Medical / Surgical Equipments (from smaller Ultra-Sounds to “Da Vinci”-like Surgical Robots)
  • Healthcare IT Infrastructure and Services (to Hospitals, Clinics) – Examples:
    • Sensors that measure Body parameters and store data in Database / Cloud <- Big Data 2.0 on Data;
    • Watson-like AI on Medical Literature (e.g., Pubmed) to augment Medical Researchers and Physicians


A few

– each concentrating on a particular part – under my supervision:

  • One researcher concentrating on Transport system of Cells – 2013 Nobel Physiology or Medicine Prize Work (Collaborating with other researchers focused on other Cellular organelles or Extra-cellular Matrix)
  • Another researcher concentrating on Spatial Representations and Motor Planning in the Brain – 2014 Nobel Physiology or Medicine Prize Work
  • Couple working on how to repair / replace Damaged Organs with Tissue / Organs grown from Stem Cells – carrying on the 2012 Nobel Physiology or Medicine Prize Work
– I’ll teach, guide and help them grow.
[Areas mentioned above are – studying the “Natural” – life as it is.]
Policy Reform:
I will review and modernizethe FDA (Drug, Medical Device) appoval process.
Going through a process that takes 10 years and costs Billion Dollars – after inventing a drug [and device] – to bring it to market – kills off many promising drugs.
[This is how having access to everything – will enable me to bring about Revolutionary Changes. No company could think of modernizing FDA approval process – however bad they wanted it.]
