Tropical medicine center is older than the '59 revolution

Gustavo Kourí

Gustavo Kourí heads a research institute his father founded more than seven decades ago.
The Pedro Kourí Tropical Medicine Institute conducts research into infectious and parasitic diseases.

“This institute was very small," Gustavo Kourí told a reporter last year. "It was a personal decision of Fidel Castro to increase the activities of the institute in 1979 to make it an excellent institution.”
