Getinge, a 130-year-old Swedish multinational in MedTech and a technology leader in critical care, recently had the privilege of collaborating with Indian academia for the first time. The experience of working with Prof. Rohit Srivastava and Dr. Arnab Ghosh from the Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering was truly enriching.
The innovative and professional approach demonstrated by Prof. Srivastava and Dr. Ghosh in delivering results impressed our global R&D team. They were able to achieve optimal cost-efficiency, timely delivery, and swift implementation.

We look forward to more such opportunities to collaborate with IIT Bombay in the near future.
