Bangladeshi microbiologist Dr Senjuti Saha, who led research on genome sequencing of the novel coronavirus, will now serve the Polio Transition Independent Monitoring Board (TIMB) created by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative to monitor and guide the process of polio transition planning in countries around the world.  

"Advising the WHO at Director-General level on progress on the polio transition process will not be an easy job, but this is the first time a Bangladeshi has been appointed to this position and I will do my best to bring our and other LMIC's perspectives to the table," she posted on Facebook.

She said she is honoured by the appointment.
