According to Granma newspaper, doctors Luis Herrera Martinez, General Director of the Havana-based Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB), and Gerardo Guillen Nieto, head of the Biomedical Research Department at this prestigious institution, have been included in a list of 18 global top industry experts.
Sources from the Cuban Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment said the list has just been published in the context of preparations for the Fourth World Vaccine Congress Asia 2010, scheduled for June 8-11 in Singapore.
The two Cuban experts are the only ones in the list from an underdeveloped country. All the others come from highly developed nations such as Germany, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, the United States, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Australia, Canada, Austria and Belgium.
