Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar prize for the year 2007 & 2008

 Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan singh today gave away the Shati Swarup Bhatnagar Awards for the Year 2007 and 2008 at a function in New Delhi. The list of the awardees is as follows:

Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for the year 2007

Biological Sciences:  

Dr Narayanaswamy Srinivasan of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore who has made outstanding contributions in the area of computational genomics, protein structure analysis, modeling and computational studies on proteins that are involved in cellular signal transduction pathways.  His studies at the whole genome level have helped to identify remotely similar proteins sharing structural and functional features. 

Dr Upinder Singh Bhalla of the National Centre for Biological Sciences (TIFR), Bangalore who  has made outstanding contributions in computational and experimental approaches to understanding neuronal and Synaptic signaling in memory and in coding of olfactory information. 

Chemical Sciences : 

Dr Amalendu Chandra of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur who has made pioneering contributions to microscopic theories and simulations of liquids, interface and clusters, leading to definitive predictions borne out by experimentation. 

Dr A Ajayaghosh of the National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram for his significant contributions in supramolecular assemblies and light induced sensor systems. 

Earth Sciences : 

Dr Anil Bhardwaj of the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram for  his fundamental contributions and creative ideas to elucidate X-Ray emissions from planetary bodies including auroras and advancing its subsequent enrichment and futuristic potential by attracting international collaboration. 

Engineering Sciences:  

Dr Rama Govindarajan of the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore has made original contributions to the understanding of instabilities in shear and non-parallel flows, flow entrainment, turbulent transition and small-scale hydraulic jumps. 

Dr Budaraju Srinivasa Murty of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai Murty has made original contributions in synthesizing nano materials by mechanical alloying and in the synthesis and nanocrystallization of bulk metallic glasses.

Mathematical Sciences

Dr B V Rajarama Bhat of the Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore has made outstanding contributions to quantum stochastic calculus, minimal dilations of quantum dynamical semi groups, theory of product systems and E◦ – semi groups. 

Medical Sciences:

Dr Pundi Narasimhan Rangarajan of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore for his outstanding contributions towards understanding gene expression changes induced by neurotropic viruses as well as DNA vaccine development. 

Physical Sciences :

Dr Yashwant Gupta of the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics, Pune for his novel observations of pulsars leading to new interpretation of these enigmatic objects.  He has made a vital contribution to the highly complex digital correlation system of Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) near Pune. 

Dr Pinaki Majumdar of the Harish-Chandra Research Insitute, Kolkata for  outstanding contributions in the area of strongly correlated systems in the presence of disorder, leading to definitive understanding of metal- insulator transition, nanoscale texture formation and colossal response driven by external fields. 

The Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for the year 2008  

Biological Sciences:  

Dr Gajendra Pal Singh Raghava of the Institute of Micobial Technology (CSIR), Chandigarh contributed significantly in the field of bioinformatics, particularly in the searching of potential drug and vaccine targets. 

Dr L S Shashidhara of the Centre for Cellular & Molecular Biology (CSIR), Hyderabad has made outstanding contributions to the understanding of appendage development in animals. His studies on the underlying molecular pathways have important implications in deciphering growth control and cancer. 

Chemical Sciences : 

Dr Pradeep Thalappil of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai made significant contributions to the area of molecular and nanoscale materials, with special focus on metal nanoparticles.

Dr Jarugu Narasimha Moorthy of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur made significant contributions in physical organic chemistry towards understanding the photoreactivity and organization of organic molecules.

Dr P N Vinayachandran of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore for

outstanding contributions to the physical oceanography of the Indian Ocean and its role in air-sea interaction and biological processes. 

Engineering Sciences:  

Dr Ranjan Kumar Mallik of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi has made seminal contributions to the performance analysis of multiple-input multi-output systems, characterization of fading channel statistics, and error analysis under correlated fading conditions. 

Mathematical Sciences 

Dr Jaikumar Radhakrishnan of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai for fundamental contributions to the theory of lower bounds in general, and to quantum information theory and communication complexity in particular. 

Dr Ravinder Goswami of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.  Dr Ravinder Goswami is recognized for his significant contributions in the field of clinical endocrinology with particular reference to hypocalcaemic disorders. His research work has documented the prevalence, significance and causes of vitamin D deficiency in apparently healthy individuals for the first time in India. His work on sporadic idiopathic hypoparathyroidism has provided valuable information on the etiopathogenesis and clinical feature of this disorder as seen in our country. 

Physical Sciences:

Dr Raghunathan Srianand of the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune who made outstanding contributions in obtaining information on redshift evolution on the cosmic microwave background radiation and establishing bounds on the variation of fundamental constants using the absorption line spectra of quasars. 

Dr Srikanth Sastry of the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore.  Dr Sastry's work has had an impact on the theoretical understanding of glass-forming liquids and conditions under which materials end up in structurally arrested states. His work on glass forming ability of materials has lead to the experimental breakthrough of making a monoatomic metallic glass by vitrifying germanium. He has established a novel liquid-liquid transition in supercooled silicon and shown it to be a metal to non-metal transition.
