Legends of Science
Prem Dutt Dogra Prem Dutt Dogra

Prem Dutt Dogra obtained his PhD from the Punjab University in 1962. His topics of research included species diversity, natural variation, wild gene resources, evolutionary trends in embryology of 11 genera and 24 species of conifers of India. His research was important for the genetical control of the seed, by use of x-ray seed radiography for screening of provenances of fertility and in selection and survey of germplasm. Dr. Dogra was the recipient of the Seth Memorial Award for Forestry of Indian Society of Tree Scientists (1989). He was a Fellow, National Academy of Agricultural Sciences, New Delhi.

Mihir Chowdhury Mihir Chowdhury

Mihir Chowdhury received his PhD from the Kolkata University in 1960. His pioneering research was on modern photochemistry. His significant work was on excited state geometry change/ photo-isomerization of Benzene. Using optical absorption and circular dichroism, he made significant contributions to forbidden transitions in lanthanides. He was the elected Fellow of the Indian National Science Academy and the Indian Academy of Sciences. He was the recipient of the S S Bhatnagar Award in 1977, Lifetime Achievement Award of the Indian Society of Radiation and Photochemical Sciences.
