Legends of Science
Archana Sharma Archana Sharma

Archana Sharma obtained her doctorate from University of Calcutta in 1955. She was a pioneer in the study of the structure of chromosomes, for which she developed new staining and pre-treatment techniques. She conducted extensive work in human genetics and also studied the effect of plant products in modifying the cytotoxicity of known pollutants. She contributed immensely when she was in association with Science and Engineering Research Council of the DST and Environmental Research Council of the Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India. Sharma received the Padma Bhushan Award in 1984. She was also the receipient of the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award, J C Bose Award, Birabal Sahni Medal, Women Scientist Award.
