Guess The Cancer Researcher From India In Today’s Google Doodle?

New Delhi: Any guess who is today’s Google Doodle?

She is Indian cell biologist Dr Kamal Ranadive and today is her 104th birth anniversary.

“Today’s Doodle, illustrated by India-based guest artist Ibrahim Rayintakath, celebrates Indian cell biologist Dr Kamal Ranadive on her 104th birthday. Ranadive is best known for her groundbreaking cancer research and devotion to creating a more equitable society through science and education,” Google said.

Kamal Samarath, better known as Kamal Ranadive, was born in 1917 in Pune. In 1949, she received a doctorate in cytology, the study of cells, while working as a researcher in the Indian Cancer Research Center (ICRC).

After a fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, she returned to Mumbai (then Bombay) and the ICRC, where she established the country’s first tissue culture laboratory.

Ranadive was among the first researchers in India to propose a link between breast cancer and heredity and to identify the links among cancers and certain viruses.
