Legends of Science
Shree Kumar Apte Shree Kumar Apte

Shree Kumar Apte obtained his Ph.D. degree from Gujarat University in 1985. His major research focus was on the molecular mechanisms underlying the tolerance of bacteria and plants to environmental stresses and their biotechnological applications. His other contributions are in diverse fields like physiology, biochemistry, ecology, molecular genetics, developmental biology, and biotechnology. Dr. Apte coordinated a DAE-sponsored multi-institutional research project entitled "Thermal Ecological Studies" to assess the possible impact of thermal effluents from operating nuclear power plants on aquatic ecosystems. Dr. S K Apte received the International Cyanobacterial Biotechnology Young Scientist award (1996) and; the INS-2206 award from the Indian Nuclear Society (2007).

Bhudev Chandra Das Bhudev Chandra Das

Bhudev Chandra Das received his Ph.D. from the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, in 1982. He pioneered the work on HPV in India and established the prevalence of HPV in cervical cancer as one of the highest in the world. He showed that highly oncogenic HPV type 16 was exclusively prevalent in India. Several new, cost-effective molecular diagnostic methods, including the most simple dry 'Paper Smear' technique, have been developed by him for early detection and population screening of cervical cancer. He is the pioneer of HPV research in India and selected as an advisor from South East Asian region for the Global HPV vaccine program. Dr. Das is the recipient of the Dr. BC Roy national award; J.C. Bose Fellowship. He is a Fellow of the International Union Against Cancer (UICC), Geneva; National Academy of Sciences (India), Allahabad; Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore; and Indian Academy of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.
