Kamal Samarath, popularly known as Kamal Ranadive, was born in 1917 in Pune, India. Her father encouraged her to pursue medical education, but instead Ranadiv saw her being called into biology. In 1949, while working as a researcher at the Indian Cancer Research Center (ICRC), he received his doctorate in cytology, the study of cells. After a partnership at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, he returned to Mumbai (then Bombay) and the ICRC, where he established the country’s first tissue culture laboratory.
As the Director of the ICRC and a pioneer in the animal modeling of cancer development, Ranativ was one of the first researchers in India to propose a link between breast cancer and heredity and to find a link between cancers and certain viruses. Ranadiv studied the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae, which causes leprosy, and helped develop the vaccine. In 1973, Drs. Ranadive and 11 colleagues founded the Indian Women Scientists Association (IWSA) in support of women in science.
Happy birthday, Dr. Kamal Ranadive!
