Legends of Science
Palliakaranai Thirumalai Narasimhan Palliakaranai Thirumalai Narasimhan

Palliakaranai Narasimhan obtained his Ph.D. from the IISc, Bangalore, in 1955. His research focused on absolute intensities in infrared spectroscopy, theoretical analysis of NMR spectra, quantum theory of magnetic resonance parameters. He later specialized in developing magnetic resonance microscopy as an imaging tool for biological sciences. He worked at the University of Illinois and Columbia University on the theory of nuclear spin coupling constants in 1959-61. Dr. Naransimhan served as Founder Member and Secretary of the Association of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopists of India. He was the recipient of the Shanti Swaroop Bhatnagar Award in 1970; the J C Ghosh Memorial Medal in 1972; C V Raman Award by UGC in 1980.

Hare Krishna Pradhan Hare Krishna Pradhan

Hare Krishna Pradhan obtained his Ph.D. from Indian Veterinary Research Institute in 1976. His specialization was in poultry diseases like infectious bronchitis, herpes virus-induced cancer, duck plague, etc. He developed new in vitro and in vivo models to study contagious bronchitis and Marek's disease. He was responsible for the development of diagnostic methodologies for highly pathogenic avian influenza. He also designed two BSL-3 laboratories for NIV, Pune, which investigate viral outbreaks in human beings. He is known as the Father of Biosafety in India. Dr. Pradhan was a member of the technical committee to establish a bone marrow transplantation and stem-cell research facility under Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. He was a fellow of the Indian Association of Veterinary Microbiology, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases, the Indian Society of Veterinary Immunology and Immunopathology.
