Late K Anji Reddy, founder, Dr Reddy's Laboratories Limited

The research centre will aim at promoting epidemiological research to understand the genetic, lifestyle and nutritional pre-dispositions of Indian population, disease patho-biology of diabetes and translational research involving hospitals, clinicians, scientists and industry to evolve therapies and solutions to address diabetes.

According to the Diabetes Atlas published by the International Diabetes Federation, it is estimated that every fifth person with diabetes will be an Indian, resulting in huge health and economic burden. To address this problem, the centre will work by integrating the efforts of clinicians, scientists, epidemiologists and pharma industries.

A symposium titled 'Insulin Resistance and Type 2 Diabetes: An Indian Epidemic' would also be organized on the same day in the memory of late K Anji Reddy, founder of Dr Reddy's Laboratories Ltd.
