Legends of Science
Dorairajan Balasubramanian Dorairajan Balasubramanian

Dorairajan Balasubramanian, a biophysical chemist, and an ocular biochemist earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University, the USA, in 1965. His significant research included the biochemistry and cell biology of the eye, particularly cataract or glaucoma. His study revealed how cataract is caused when crystallins are damaged photochemically, leading to diminished lenticular transparency. He is an elected member of the Indian National Science Academy (INSA), Indian Academy of Sciences (IAS), National Academy of Sciences, India (NASI), Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is also a Fellow of the Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, Germany, Mauritian Academy of Sciences, and the International Molecular Biology Network. Dr. Balasubramanian is the recipient of many prestigious awards, The SS Bhatnagar award in 1981; Padma Shri in 2002; the Fukui Award of the National Foundation for Eye Research, United States, in 1991.

Ranjit Kumar Banerjee Ranjit Kumar Banerjee

Ranjit Kumar Banerjee obtained his Ph.D. from Kolkata University in 1972. He isolated and characterized an ATPase from the avian myeloblastosis virus and phosphate transport carrier from mitochondria. His significant research is the single-step isolation of Ca +2-ATPase from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. He made a major contribution to establishing the role of reactive oxygen species in both H. pylori-mediated and non-mediated gastric ulcers. He showed the efficacy of Neem Bark extract in curing hyperacidity and gastroduodenal ulcers in patients with no adverse effects. Dr. Banerjee was the elected fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, in 1993; the National Academy of Sciences, Allahabad, in 1997.
