I am so pleased to share that I have been appointed in Advisory Board by Government of India for an ambitious joint Cancer Research project between India and UK

I am proud to be part of such exceptional advisory panel who have senior leadership of Tata Memorial Hospital, National Cancer Insitiute, AIIMS, King’s college London, University of Cambridge, and University of Oxford.

We the advisory panel met in London to agree the final research challenges for this initiatives. After lots of brainstorming, our bilateral Advisory Panel has set seven research challenges under the theme of affordable approaches to cancer. We are calling on researchers in India and the UK to join forces to tackle these challenges.
