[Perspectives] Brendan Crabb—making research work for development

Maybe it was Brendan Crabb’s upbringing in India and Papua New Guinea (PNG) that set him on the road to his current role. His father had worked for the United Nations establishing locally owned printing businesses in developing countries—a career that has unexpected parallels with what Crabb does today as Director of the Macfarlane Burnet Institute for Medical Research and Public Health. The institute has a dual role, linking medical research with public health action to improve the lives of poor and vulnerable communities worldwide.
