New Delhi: Two ILS researchers among top 2% Global Scientists
Dr. Sanjeev K Sahoo and Dr. Amaresh C. Panda scientists working with Institute of Life Sciences, Bhubaneswar have been listed among the top 2% global scientists. This global list has been recently released by Stanford University and listed the most-cited scientists across various disciplines involving 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. The list includes nearly 1,500 scientists, doctors and engineers in India. The list is based on number of citations, H -Index, co-authorship and number of publications.

Dr Sanjeev Sahoo is a senior scientist at ILS since 2005. He is a well-known expert in the field of Nanotechnology based drug delivery system in the field of Cancer.

One of the patented technologies developed by Dr. Sahoo has been transferred to a pharmaceutical company for commercialisation.

Dr. Amaresh Panda joined ILS in 2017 after successful post-doctoral work in USA. His research group is involved in molecular biology research for understanding the RNA-mediated gene regulation, particularly governing beta cell physiology in diabetes and role of circular RNA in muscle differentiation. He has more than 45 publications in international journals.

Dr. Ajay Parida, Director, ILS mentioned that it is extremely gratifying to see two scientists of ILS being recognised globally, and hoped this will encourage them as well as other scientists of ILS to contribute more effectivity in the coming days.
