    The Shakuntala Amir Chand Prize was instituted in 1953 by late Major General Amir Chand for significant research contribution by young scientists in biomedical sciences. This prize is awarded for the best published research work on any subject in the field of biomedical science including clinical research. The award for the year 2014 is being presented to Dr. Nooruddin Khan, Lab of Immunology and Infectious Diseases, Department of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, School of Life Sciences, University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad for the research work on 'Molecular mechanism of vaccine induced protective immunity'. The findings of Dr. Khan's Group reveal that yellow fever vaccine (YF17D) activates GCN2 to program dendritic cells to initiate autophagy and enhanced antigen-presentation to T cells. These findings have potential bearing for the design and development of novel vaccine formulation against emerging infectious diseases.

    The JALMA Trust Fund Oration Award for Leprosy and Other Mycobacterial Diseases was instituted by National JALMA institute for Leprosy & Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Agra for scientists who have contributed significantly in the field of leprosy and other mycobacterial diseases. The prize for year 2014 is being presented to Dr. Beenu Joshi, ICMR-National JALMA Institute for Leprosy & Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Agra for the research work on 'Unravelling the mechanism of T cell unresponsiveness in leprosy and TB, search for new antigens for the diagnosis and vaccine candidate for TB'. Research work of Dr. Beenu Joshi revealed mechanism of T cell activation leading to unresponsiveness and role of calcium signalling and MAP kinase pathways in the survival of bacteria and disease pathogenesis in TB and leprosy. For TB diagnosis, Ag85c antigen was noted to have diagnostic potential for paediatric TB. Certain proteins in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates were shown with increased intensity which could prove important for TB diagnosis or as vaccine candidate(s).
