Wellcome Trust - Cambridge Centre for Global Health Research


Studying at Cambridge

Visiting Scholars



Engagement with India is a strategic priority for the University of Cambridge. An example of this engagement is the flourishing partnership between the University and the Government of India Department of Biotechnology (DBT). Working together, the two partners have created five fixed-term, research-oriented unestablished Lectureships to strengthen the University’s strategic partnerships with Indian research institutions and to enhance the academic, research and translational capacity of India and the UK. Post-holders will be employees of the University of Cambridge throughout the 5-year duration of the post, but will be required to spend 3 years (60%) at a partner institution in India. Funding of the posts is being provided 60% by DBT and 40% by the University of Cambridge. Dr Ankur Mutreja has moved  from DBT India to the Anti-Microbial Research Laboratory at The Department of Medicine to  research pandemic strains of enteric diseases for Low and Middle Income Countries
