Kattesh V. Katti
University of Missouri, USA
Professor Kattesh V. Katti is internationally recognized as a leader in the interconnecting fields of—chemistry, radiopharmaceutical sciences, nanotechnology/green nanotechnology and nanomedicine—for biomedical applications, specifically for molecular imaging and therapy of living subjects. Dr. Katti has been awarded a number of international awards and citations which include: Winner of the 2016 'Person of the Year in Science' award by Vijayavani, India's most influential newspaper with over 75 million readership base. Dr. Katti has been selected for this coveted award for his pioneering research to connect India's 5000 year old traditional holistic medicine (Ayurveda) with scientifically sound nanomedicine through his ingenious green nanotechnology research. This work has created a new field of holistic medicine which Dr. Katti refers to as nano-ayurvedic medicine. International Hevesy Medal Award (2015) for excellence in Nuclear Sciences; Elected to the fellowship of the National Academy of Inventors (2015) recognizing the discovery of ‘Katti Peptides’; One of the ‘25 Most Influential Scientists In Molecular Imaging in the World’ award by RT Image, the ‘Father of Green Nanotechnology’ citation by the Nobel Prize Winner Norman Borlaug, Gauss Professorship—Hall of Fame—from the Gottingen Academy of Sciences, ‘Outstanding Scientists Fellows’ award and induction as a Fellow of the Academy of Science, St Louis—one of the oldest scientific academies of the world and many more. In 2013, Dr. Katti was elected as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science with a citation “for distinguished contributions encompassing nanoscale chemistry, particularly for ground breaking discoveries enabling application of nanotechnology concepts for biomedical applications”. His unprecedented discovery of the production of tumor specific gold nanoparticles through 100% green processes have been cited as the Editor’s choice in Nature, Future Medicine, in Science (AAAS), in Popular Science, by the Discovery Channel and have been highlighted in scientific/medical programs of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC, London).
