Chennai and Mumbai 2011

In 2011 a group of us visited two centres in India, the Fetal Care Research Foundation in Chennai and the KEM Hospital in Mumbai, where Tanya and I were guests of Dr Mamta Muranjan, Additional Professor of Paediatrics. The group consisted of Tanya Collin-Histed (CEO, UK Gauchers Association), Dr Uma Ramaswami (Consultant Metabolic Paediatrician, Addenbrooke’s Hospital), Niamh Finnegan (LSD Clinical Nurse Specialist, GOSH), Christine Lavery (CEO, MPS Society), and Malcolm Johnson (Genzyme).

While I had been working with Dr Jagadeesh in Chennai for a number of years, it was the first time I had had the privilege of accompanying colleagues to her centre. It was also the first time I had visited KEM hospital. A detailed report is available in the UK Gauchers Association newsletter here.

I have had a lifelong interest in lysosomal storage disorders. Having recently retired I now have time to pursue my passion for teaching and training of young doctors and scientists, and hopefully instil in them the passion for their patients that is so integral to working in this field.
