What’s Washniek doing in this photo with Nigam?
Washniek is the head for Aderans Scientific. Although the parent company in Japan seems to have pulled the plug (or suspended?) their ongoing research into Ji Gami after having put over 150 million into it - perhaps due to dwindling funds? (speculation).
Perhaps if Nigam comes up with something workable for follicular neogenesis which Aderans can work into its Phase II clinical trials (without having to re-do Phase I), he might yet save the day for Aderans if they decide to license it.
All speculation of course - could be just a photo op.
