Dr Khawaja Ashfaque Ahmed (b.02.01.1973), PhD, Assistant Professor-cum-Jr-
Scientist, Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Bihar Veterinary College, Patna.
Dr.Ahmed is a very highly motivated scientist who has worked on innate immunity loci in
poultry. The work is highly relevant and such work needs to be encouraged in India. He has
published all the work in peer reviewed journals of reasonably good standing. For his
consistent and important work he is strongly recommended.
Dr Udaya K Anandavardhanan (b.25.05.1976), PhD, Assistant Professor,
Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai.
Solved many interesting cases of conjectures of Jacquet, Flicker and Rallis . His results are
at the cutting edge of current research in number theory.
Dr Sangita Bose (b.21.01.1977), PhD, Guest Scientist, Max Planck Institute for Solid
State Research, Nanoscale Science Department, Germany.
For her studies of the size dependence of superconducting properties of nanostructured thin
films, providing new insights on the competing influences of surface and quantum size
Dr Saibal Chatterjee (b.29.04.1977), PhD, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Department of
Epigenetics, Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research, Maulbeerstrasse,
Dr.Saibal Chatterjee has made very good contributions in the area of tRNA import in
Kinetoplast/ mitochondria of the protozoan parasite Leishmania. Leishmania mitochondrial
RNA import complex has been characterized by him and he has demonstrated the role of the
multi-subunit RNA Import Complex (RIC) in the import system.
