Legends of Science
Chandrima Shaha Chandrima Shaha

Dr. Chandrima Shaha, an Indian biologist, earned her Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, Calcutta (then the Indian Institute of Experimental Medicine). She made significant contributions in understanding cellular defense mechanisms from oxidative stress and modalities of cell death in a multicellular model of mammalian germ cells and a unicellular model of a protozoan parasite. She is currently holding the President Chair of the Indian National Science Academy. Shaha served as a Member of the Task Force on Human Genetics and Genome Analysis, Department of Biotechnology. In 1992, Dr. Shaha received the Shakuntala Amirchand Award of ICMR. She also received Special Award for the 50th Anniversary of DNA Double Helix Discovery (2003) for her outstanding contributions in understanding Cell Death Processes in different Model Organisms.

Somadatta Sinha Somadatta Sinha

Dr. Sinha obtained her Ph.D. from the School of Environmental Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Her research focussed on theoretical biology, nonlinear dynamics, and complex systems, intending to understand the logic and design of biological processes. Her research work also involved analyzing epidemiological data of infectious diseases, studying host-parasite evolution using genomic data and computational modeling, and graph theory to understand macroscopic properties of intracellular networks. She worked as a Scientist at CCMB, Hyderabad, from 1983 to 2011, became a Professor, and later a visiting Professor at IISER, Mohali. She received the J C Bose National Fellowship (2012) by the DST and received the National Women Bioscientist (senior) Award in 2013 by the DBT.
