Scope and content

This file contains mostly correspondence about the collaboration between the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad, India, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, Maryland. The letters in this file are from January to May of 1985. This file includes letters either addressed to or written by John H Lewi of the Department of State, the Bureau of Oceans and International Environment and Scientific Affairs, KN Johry, Director of CSIR (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research); and many more. There were two letters addressed to Yaspal, Secretary of the Department of Science and Technology, and S Varadarajan, Director-General of CSIR (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research), respectively, and both letters had the same enclosure. However, only one copy of the enclosure is preserved in this file to avoid repetition. This enclosure contains a letter from Philip E Schambra, Science Attache of the Embassy of the United States of America, New Delhi, and two annexures of its own titled 'Intellectual Property, Copyrights and Patent Provisions' and 'Suggested specific items of work on which, in the opinion of staff of CCMB, a collaboration between CCMB and NIH may be mutually profitable'. Two copies of a letter addressed to S Varadarajan, Director-General of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), are retained since both letters contain different annotations.
