Nobel Laureate,
Dr. Rolf Zinkernagel's inaugural speech at the Ramanbhai Foundation
5th International Symposium
on February 1, 2011





Dear Colleagues,

It’s a pleasure to welcome you all to the Ramanbhai Foundation 8th International Symposium.

This year’s RBF symposium will focus on Advances in New Drug Discovery and Development through state-of-the-art lectures, cutting-edge poster presentations, panel discussions and informal scientific networking.

Our overarching aim through the RBF Symposium has been to create a platform for knowledge-sharing where researchers, scientists, academicians and the industry can converge, discuss and share new trends in Drug Discovery and Development. We made a beginning with this endeavor in 2003 and today the biennial symposium has become an important event amongst the scientific community. This year our panel of distinguished speakers will be sharing their knowledge and experience. As always, the interactive panel discussions and the poster presentations will open up new vistas of learning.

We believe that collaborations across the healthcare ecosystem are important in accelerating the pace of innovation for developing new medicines and improving patients' lives. We are confident that you will find the Ramanbhai Foundation 8th International Symposium, an enriching experience.

With warm regards,

Pankaj R. Patel
Chief Patron - Ramanbhai Foundation
