Women in Health: Scientists

The DPT facility in CRI is a current good
manufacturing practice facility and it is the first of its kind in the government sector
in India. Here we produce the DPT group of vaccines,
where different components – that is, diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus – are all formulated
in the form of a vaccine. Then it is filled, labeled and packaged, ready
for commercial use. In my childhood, I read an interesting story
about Edward Jenner, and how he protected people from smallpox by injecting cow pox
material. That really fascinated me. Working in science is not only about gaining
knowledge. It is about gaining knowledge to help people and and do something for society.
