Updates on Navin Khanna, ICGEB Delhi and his killer work on Dengue

Navin Khanna heads the Recombinant Gene Products Group at ICGEB New Delhi; his work is featured in "The Ken",  this month, referring to him as "India's Judge Dredd of Dengue" (an allusion to Judge Joseph Dredd, British comic book law enforcement officer), and explains how in the 26 years that he has been at ICGEB he has developed 26 diagnostic kits, 23 of which are on the market.

In October 2016, ICGEB entered into a partnership with Sun Pharma to develop a novel dengue vaccine for India and Global markets, based on the work of Navin Khanna.
