Four Indian-American researchers — Parag A Pathak, Sridevi Vedula Sarma, Pawan Sinha, and Biju Parekkadan—have been honoured by US President Barack Obama for the prestigious Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers. These scientists were selected among 96 researchers and the honour is said to be the highest US honour to science and engineering professionals in early stages of their independent research careers.
 
The 4 Indian-American scientists who have been awarded are:
 
A) Biju Parekkadan, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
 
B) Pawan Sinha has a computer science bachelor’s degree from IIT-New Delhi and Postgraduate and PhD degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is a Professor of Vision and Computational Neuroscience in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT.
 
C) Parag A. Pathak, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
 
D) Sridevi Vedula Sarma, assistant professor at the John Hopkins University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering, Institute for Computational Medicine.
 
Barack Obama said, ‘Discoveries in science and technology not only strengthen our economy; they inspire us as a people. The impressive accomplishments of today’s awardees so early in their careers promise even greater advances in the years ahead.’
 
The White House statement said the Presidential early career awards symbolize the high priority the Obama Administration focuses on producing outstanding engineers and scientists to advance the nation’s goals, tackle grand challenges, and contribute to the American economy.
 
The awardees are selected for their innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their promise to community service as established through public education, scientific leadership or community outreach.
 
The awards were established by President Bill Clinton in 1996.
