COLOMBO (NEWS 1st): The race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine is currently intensifying. Many countries, pharmaceutical corporations, and leading universities have developed candidate vaccines that have proven to be highly effective and a successful curative process for COVID-19 is not far away.

The University of Oxford gains much credit among the institutions which are engaged in developing a vaccine for COVID-19.

Sri Lankan born consultant physician Dr. Maheshi Ramasamy is one of the principal investigators in the Oxford Vaccine Group.

Dr. Ramasamy who was born in Sri Lanka completed her medical education in the United Kingdom.

Her name has been highlighted a number of times in an article published in ‘ The Lancet’ a world-renowned medical journal that reports on the clinical progress of the vaccine that is being developed to counter COVID-19.

Dr. Ramasamy obtained her medical degree at Christ’s College, University of Cambridge, and trained in Infectious Diseases and General Internal Medicine in London and Oxford.

She is currently a Consultant Physician at the Oxford University Hospital’s NHS Foundation Trust and also serves as the Principal Lecturer at Megan Medical College.

Dr. Ramasamy’s parents are also illustrious scientists. Her mother Prof. Samaranayake Ramasamy is celebrated as the first Sri Lankan to receive a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge while her father Ranjan Ramasamy was a scientist.
