Q&A with Pierre Marquet

Marquet 150x200This month I had the privilege to interview the director of my doctoral thesis, Professor Pierre Marquet (Limoges, France). I thought I knew the department and research laboratory, and their respective histories, quite well. I was delighted to learn a lot more from the interview, a testament to the extraordinary and diverse work achieved by Pr. Marquet, spanning several decades.

An Interview with Denny Fleming

FlemingThis month our interview comes from Vellore in Tamil Nadu, India. Denny Fleming, honorary professor at the Clinical Pharmacology Unit of the Christian Medical College, kindly shared her experiences. Denny completed her academic formation in Birmingham, United Kingdom, and has worked at the National Health Service (NHS), the University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana, and clinical trials in osteoarthritis, Roussel Uclaf, UK, prior to joining the Unit in Vellore in 1998.

Denny’s story reflects typical and unique challenges, but also a great deal of achievements, many of which have been supported through collaborations with IATDMCT colleagues.
