As much as we’d like to shush about it, the fact remains that mental health is an imperative component of one’s overall well-being that encompasses a wide range of emotional, psychological, and social factors. One key area of research in mental health sciences is the study of neurobiology, which focuses on the biological and physiological processes that, when gone awry, are responsible for various mental health conditions.
Laureates include Vidita Vaidya, Nissim Kanekar, Suman Chakraborty, Sudhir Krishnaswamy, Mahesh Kakde and Rohini Pande

Infosys Prize 2021 Laureate, Dr Chandrasekhar Nair shares his views about using technology in medicine and healthcare
Prof Bedangadas Mohanty of the National Institute of Science Education and Research, Bhubaneshwar, has been awarded the Infosys prize in Physics 2021 for investigations of nuclear force. At the Brookhaven National Laboratory and the European Organization for Nuclear Research, he determined the transition temperature of the quark-gluon plasma to hadronic matter, observed heavy antimatter nuclei, observed nuclear spin-orbital angular momentum interactions, and other effects in the quark-gluon plasma.
In a virtual ceremony, the Infosys Science Foundation announced six winners of the Infosys Prize for the year 2020.

The prize consists of a pure gold medal, a citation and a purse of USD 100,000.
Imagine just switching on your lights and downloading a movie in a second. The world demands high-speed internet connectivity at a lower price. This increasing clamour for speed and bandwidth is opening up new avenues, and one such evolving domain is LiFi - a wireless technology that makes use of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to transmit data. Light waves are 10,000 times denser than WiFi signals, so there is vast untapped potential here.
The Trustees of the Infosys Science Foundation (ISF) announced the winners of the Infosys Prize 2019 at an event held today at the Infosys campus in Electronic City, Bengaluru. The winners include Dr. Manu V. Devadevan, Dr. G Mugesh, Dr. Majula Reddy, Dr. Siddhartha Mishra, Dr. Anand Pandian and Dr. Sunita Sarawagi.
In the last one hundred and sixty years, in spite of hundreds of claims, some of them from first-class mathematicians, the Riemann Hypothesis, or the holy grail of mathematics, remains as elusive as ever. The conjecture, which originated from the work of Bernhard Riemann on the distribution of prime numbers, has now been extended and generalised into a monstrous beast. Its cunning and long arms now encompass almost all areas of mathematics, far beyond its site of origin.
