Dr. Madhukar Pai, Director of McGill Global Health Programs (GHP) has been appointed as Adjunct Professor at the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), India’s equivalent of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. ICMR is the apex body in India for the formulation, coordination and promotion of biomedical research and is one of the oldest and largest medical research agencies in the world.
Dr. Pai currently serves on the International Scientific Advisory Group (pictured above) of the India Tuberculosis Research Consortium within ICMR, and he has also been invited to help ICMR develop a National Essential Diagnostics List. Several colleagues from ICMR and its affiliated institutes have participated as panelists for the McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health, and such reciprocal relationships have strengthened Canada-India relationships in medicine and science.
