University of Massachusetts recognises him for his commendable work in the field of vaccines
The University of Massachusetts recently conferred Dr Cyrus Poonawalla, Founder of Serum Institute of India, with the Honorary Degree of “Doctor of Science Hon” for his commendable work in the field of vaccines.
Dr Poonawalla said, “I am grateful to the University of Massachusetts for recognising our work. I strongly feel that we need to treat the field of vaccination with the respect it deserves. It’s not just another field related to medical science. But one of the most important ones. We need more precautionary measures than cures for betterment of human life and vaccination is one such measure.”
Along with Dr Poonawallah, physician-scientist Huda Y Zoghbi and Duke University nursing leader Marion E Broome were conferred with the Honorary Degree of ‘Doctor of Science Hon.’ for their accomplishments as well.
