    In 1949 he received his PhD as a researcher at the Indian Cancer Research Center (ICRC) in cytology, the study of cells. After a fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, he returned to Mumbai (then Bombay) and the International Committee of the Red Cross and founded the country’s first tissue culture laboratory.

    “As the director of the ICRC and a pioneer in animal modeling of cancer development, Ranadive was among the first researchers in India to propose a link between breast cancer and heredity and to identify the links among cancers and certain viruses.”

    Continuing this trailblazing work, Ranadive studied Mycobacterium leprae, the bacterium that causes leprosy, and aided in developing a vaccine. In 1973, Dr. Ranadive and 11 colleagues founded the Indian Women Scientists’ Association (IWSA) to support women in scientific fields,” Google Doodle page says.
