A quote from Dr Shaila Srinivasan

“The EMBS has certainly come a long way, and what was just a first job for me,
has become a lifetime’s vocation.  While I hope I will be able to retire in a
few years time, I pray that the EMBS will continue its good work in Oxfordshire
for many, many, years to come.”

We at EMBS look forward to the future, in the hope that we can carry forward Dr
Shailas vision for EMBS, and facilitate its growth to even greater heights.
