Prestigious French award for Indian scientist

The award will be conferred during a ceremony on June 14 at the Alliance Française de Bangalore. The prestigious award is given by the French Government to individuals, recognising their distinguished contribution to academia and education. It is one of the oldest and highest civil decorations, dating back to the 1808, when it was created by Napoleon. It was reinstated in 1955. Previous awardees of the Palmes Academiques include Dr Goverdhan Mehta, IISc; Prof CNR Rao, JNCASR; Dr KJ Rao, IISc; and Dr KJ Mahale, Karnatak University.

The Consul General of France, Dominique Causse will confer the Chevalier de l'Ordre des Palmes Acadèmiques on Dr Shyamala Mani for her significant contributions to neurosciences, in particular her work under the ICMR-Inserm collaboration and the International Associated Laboratory ‘Protect’ (DBT-Inserm) on neonatal lesions and the influence of malnutrition on the development of the foetal brain.
