Recently, TheLifeofScience.com created content for a firecracker of an outreach event. Faridabad-based Translational Health Science and Technology Institute (THSTI) celebrated its 10th Foundation Day on July 15, 2019. We were tasked with creating 4 comics to highlight some of THSTI’s biggest contributions to India’s public health!
The second in this series, this infographic is about Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), a chronic inflammatory disease affecting the gut and THSTI’s battle against it. India has the highest incidence of IBD among South-East Asian countries and the symptoms can vary highly between individuals. Researchers at THSTI have found a possible strategy to battle this epidemic in India, read on to find out about it!
We will be posting one of these comics every few weeks. Share far and wide!
