Wasudeo Namdeo Gade named VC of Pune University

May 16, 2012

 Date: 16th May 2012

Gade is currently the director of the University of Pune's Board for Colleges and University Development.

Renowned biologist Wasudeo Namdeo Gade will be the new vice-chancellor (VC) of the University of Pune. The Chancellor of universities and governor of Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan shortlisted his name from among five candidates.


He was appointed for a five-year term or till he attains the age of 65 years, whichever is earlier. The post was lying vacant ever since RK Shevgaonkar resigned as the Pune university VC on September 15, 2011, following his appointment as the director of IIT Delhi.


A committee formed to search VC, headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal, former Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court, has shortlisted five names. It has also forwarded the names of candidates in January for final selection by the governor.


However, the process got entangled in a legal tussle in the Bombay high court over a PIL challenging the composition of the VC's search committee. The high court dismissed the PIL on May 11, paving the way for Raj Bhavan to announce the final selection.


Gade is currently the director of the University of Pune's Board for Colleges and University Development (BCUD). He did his BSc in Biology from Nagpur University and later did MSc (Life Sciences), M Phil and PhD in Life Sciences from the Jawaharlal Nehru University.


He was a post-doctoral fellow in France and Sweden between 1988 and 1990. He is a recipient of Lupin Endowment Award instituted by UICT, and served as scientist in the Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology of CSIR in Delhi between 1983 and 2003. Gade was Reader and later Professor in the department of Biotechnology, University of Pune, from July 2003.
