Chinese Firm Buys Canada mRNA Vaccine Tech in $500 Million Deal — perfect example of how cheen acquires not just a product but “platforms n people” ⁦@sriramthg⁩ ⁦@cvkrishnan⁩ 1/n…
They would not care if this particular vaccine works or not… they want the tech platform - trained people, machines, people who design and make the machines/lipid pumps/raw materials, test gear because mrna will have many uses and they want in + help their own efforts 2/n
So they have teams of talent scouts who roam all over looking for small cos with good tech but needing money. Kaneda govt imported all vaccs and gave minimal funds to this co… so they home in and make a good offer 3/n
Very soon once initial absorption is done there will be a total buyout and infusion of mainland scientists to come over and learn things and scale things back home. The few kanadians on payroll will be handsomely paid and used as consultants ..4/n
Instead of manufacturing and clinical trials partnerships like gennova did with hdt seattle and bioE with baylor college of medicine we need these funded deals to acquire IP/people/labs. Need a war chest funded by govt/proxies to keep acquiring dozens of small cos 5/n
Like cadila zydus acquired a small co etna pharma in sicily for vaccines, ola bought etergo for scooters - goal must be unify things and keep building on initial pump of tech infusion not repeat the decadal cycle ot begging bowl for tot n/n

5 page primer on MIRV from a mid 80s childhood book I retained- early on I felt before ssbn and mirv all power was maya… now we stand at (official) cusp on another breakout move - it has all details of how mirv is done pros and cons 1/2
The round ball above is likely the ARIS inertial reference sphere type device of icbm . For chicha it was pioneered by charles draper labs in MIT which still works on classified stuff today.

behind the main fleet but sliding like a SSN under the water is India's first mRNA vaccine candidate HGCO19 by Gennova, Pune helped by the dept of biotech . With enrollment starting for phase1/2 trials a month ago, maybe by 1Q CY22 we will see EUA.…

We will spend all day today debating and booing merkel but real soln is to fix things for autonomy ... few of the outragers will want to spent cycles on even thinking what are the gaps. and there r yawning gaps if we have to airlift o2 machines from germany now.
Victory begins with a honest self assessment and then course corrections in a continuous cycle. There are 1000s of unsexy but essential gear with not even indian license prod let alone IP.
If we can supply 1000s of type of machinery to world markets with indian IP (like germany does) would not hear such rude comments. But then giving gyaan on ai/ml/5th gen and salivating over FANG is our elite youths fascination 😂💁

India is going to need a centrally funded and run FEMA type agency to maintain strategic stockpiles of everything needed in a world where borders are harder , travel is dying and global supply chains iffy, plus state govts a mixed bag. NDRF is not it as its disaster relief... 1/5
Desi FEMA will need people from various manufacturing, IT, operations research, supply chain, finance , pure science and logistics .. maybe as a bigger adjunct to the proposed tri service joint logistics command 2/5
Needless to say ias cannot run the show in this. PM having to chair meetings on oxygen supply yesterday shows how things allowed to drift,lack of initiative at normal level. A few superstars/sage-kings cannot do, need process in all things to reduce the modi/napolean need 3/5

The first is single use bioreactor bags. The leading makers per a video that explains their use are Image
Second is beta propiolactone - imported from germany . Used to inactivate viruses so covaxin needs it…
