‘Muller Medithon 2023’-an ideation competition at Father Muller Concludes
Mangaluru: The Closing ceremony of the Muller Medithon an ideathon translational research with an interdisciplinary approach concluded on 11 March 2023 with an outstanding interactive session. The two-day event hosted by the Father Muller Research Centre (FMRC) closed with praise and guiding comments by the stalwarts in interdisciplinary research.
The welcoming of the gathering was beautifully essayed by Dr Ramesh Bhat, Vice Dean FMMC. The programme was presided by Director FMCI Rev.

This will definitely narrow the gap in healthcare in the coming days and help boost economies the world over.
