Dr Venkatraman Ramakrishnan who won a Nobel Prize in 2009 for Chemistry, in conversation with Prabir Purkayastha, exhorts that a different kind of model needs to be created for developing new drugs.

Such an alternative model will also help in addressing the issue of expensive costs of these new medicines.
