Oxford Immune Algorithmics (OIA) is honoured to announce a new partnership with a major university in the UAE, Khawarizmi International College or KIC, made possible by Dr Assem Al-Hajj, KIC President, Prof. Nabil El Kadhi, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dr. Lionel Khalil, Head of Legal and International Development at OIA.
His excellency, Mr Patrick Moody, UK Ambassador, and several other high-level officers from the local UAE and Abu Dhabi government and the UK embassy, including the Pippa Russo and Life Sciences Advisor at the Department for International Trade at the British Embassy in Abu Dhabi and the Trade Commissioner and Consul-General in Dubai, Mr Simon Penney, confirmed their presence at the virtual ceremony.
Founded in 1985, Khawarizmi International College (KIC) is one of the first private higher education institutions in the UAE to be accredited by the Ministry of Education, offering Bachelor and Diploma degrees in Business Administration, IT and Computer Graphic Design, Health and Medical Sciences and Mass Communication. Over the course of 35 years, we have graduated over 11,000 alumni that have been empowered by engaging, applied educational experiences to meet the needs of the industry and the community.
We think KIC and OIA are the perfect partners. For those that don’t know about the story behind our flagship product name Algocyte, the first part of the name comes from Algorithm, which is the latinisation of Al Khawarizmi, the polymath that advanced the field of algorithms and is in the name of KIC. Algo also means pain from the Greek álgos. And cyte in Algocyte derived from the Greek "kytos” meaning container or cell.
Two of the main areas taught at KIC are computer sciences, health and medical sciences the very topics of interest of our own company. We think this relationship will be very fruitful and will complement each other.

One major project that OIA wants to achieve with the help of KIC is to prove its technology in space, making it possible for Emirati astronauts to be closely monitored with OIA's innovative technology. We aim at having a prototype working at the Mars City near Dubai to help astronauts train and use cutting-edge medical technology.
