Anuk Das Champions Multicultural Networking In Immunology Research.

Diversity is not just a liberal ideal — it is a portal to discovery. To understand that statement in the context of the biopharmaceutical industry, the words at either end of the sentence must be taken at their largest meaning. Diversity of people and research resources leads to more productive discovery of human potential and new therapeutic entities. Diversity and discovery go hand in hand at Janssen Research & Development, where Anuk Das heads the Disease Integrative Biology, Immunology Research unit, and where she has helped make diversity a cultural priority at the company.
