Dr. VATSALA THIRUMALAI, ALUMNUS OF NSN, is the proud recipient of INDIA’S HIGHEST SCIENCE AWARD SHANTI SWARUP BHATNAGAR PRIZE FOR 2020, announced during the foundation day of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). Vatsala is a Scientist at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore.

Vatsala began her schooling at NSN MATRICULATION HIGHER SECONDARY SCHOOL.  She was always an inquisitive student with an optimum scientific temper and inquiry. She attributes her interest in Science to the encouragement of her parents and teachers.  She also adds in her interview with IISER, Pune, that her wonderful teachers motivated her to think out of the box and also think about careers in different disciplines which developed an interest in Science and Research in her.  She also quoted that the visit organized by NSN to Tamilnadu Veterinary Science College threw open a unique exposure as they witnessed and learned about different specimens. This kindled her to take up a career in Science.

Vatsala pursued her graduation in B. Tech in Bio-Technology from Anna University. Then she went on to pursue Ph.D. in Neuro Science from Brandeis University, Massachusetts. Her quest for knowledge and specialization gained her an opportunity to pursue her Doctorate in the National Institute of Health in Vold Spring Harbor Labs, New York. She did her post-doctoral research for nine years relentlessly.

Dr. Vatsala did various researches in her lab NCBS, Bangalore.  Her lab is interested in understanding the hierarchy, mechanisms, and development of neural circuits that generate movement.  They use Zebrafish, a small freshwater tropical fish endemic to the Ganges, as the model system.

We are really proud of her achievement and wish her many more accolades in the years to come.
