Prof. Maharaj Kishan Bhan, a great paediatrician, humanist and luminary who developed the Rota Virus vaccine, is no longer with us. Former Secretary, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, he was a stellar academician and visionary and was committed to intellectual and scientific excellence. He believed in keeping the civil society and academic institutions at the centre of scientific thinking and growth. He not only established BIRAC but was the guiding force of many leading scientific institutes across India including JIPMER and THSTI. We were privileged to have Prof. Bhan as the President of the Centre for Chronic Disease Control. Prof. Bhan was a great visionary and was the strength and stimulus to young researchers, institutions of excellence, and his contribution to public health and science overall was unparalleled in the context of India. Centre for Chronic Disease Control will miss his benevolent guidance and generous advise.
