The Foundation's Staff

“The staff we met had served for a long time with the foundation and appeared a committed and cohesive group. The interaction and understanding between the three major groups (Tuberculosis, Leprosy and Medicinal Plants) was excellent. The leadership for the three above-mentioned areas was in the hands of experienced researchers and the majority of the junior staff members present during the discussions were confident and articulate”
