Dr. Kattesh V. Katti

Nanotech Scientist

An outstanding leader with sustained international acclaims for his work in biomedical sciences, Kattesh V. Katti is the first immigrant American to receive the Sate of Missouri's highest civilian honor of 'Outstanding Missourian' award from the Governor of Missouri State in recognition of his contributions in Nanomedicine and Green Nanotechnology. For his stellar scientific contributions and ground breaking inventions in chemical, green nanotechnological and nano- biomedical sciences, which have made transformative differences in cancer diagnostics and therapy, Dr. Katti has been awarded a number of international awards and citations which include: one of the '25 Most Influential Scientists In Molecular Imaging in the World' award by RT Image, the 'Father of Green Nanotechnology' citation by the Nobel Prize Winner Norman Borlaug, Gauss Professorship from the Gottingen Academy of Sciences, 'Outstanding Scientists Fellows' award and induction as a Fellow of the Academy of Science, St Louis - one of the oldest scientific academies of the world and many more. In 2013, Dr. Katti was elected as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science with a citation "for distinguished contributions encompassing main group, transition metal and nanoscale chemistry, particularly for ground breaking discoveries enabling application of chemical concepts for biomedical applications" (SCIENCE : 30 NOVEMBER 2012, VOL 338, ISSUE 6111, PAGES 1117-1248). His unprecedented discovery of the production of tumor specific gold nanoparticles through 100% green processes have been cited as the Editor's choice in Nature, Future Medicine, in Science (AAAS), in Popular Science, by the Discovery Channel and have been highlighted in scientific/medical programs of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC, London).
