Manu and 22 other Fellows will receive a no-strings-attached $625,000 grant for their exceptional creativity and potential for future contributions to their fields.
“While our communities, our nation, and our world face both historic and emerging challenges, these 23 extraordinary individuals give us ample reason for hope” said MacArthur Foundation President Julia Stasch. “They are breaking new ground in areas of public concern, in the arts, and in the sciences, often in unexpected ways. Their creativity, dedication, and impact inspire us all.”
Manu Prakash is a physical biologist and inventor integrating techniques from soft matter physics, fluid dynamics, and field ecology to create novel tools with the goal of democratizing knowledge of the microscopic world. He is a leader in the “frugal science” movement and the inventor of the Foldscope, an affordable but powerful microscope used around the world in educational settings. He also invented low-cost microfluidic chips that enable widespread collection of samples from infectious insects in remote locations.

Latest Books Authored by Alumni

Book by Shayamal Banerjee

Every incident in our daily life carries a story. Sometimes they are tragic and in some occasions they are hilarious. But the incidents carry some messages, which help one to face the practical life. The old proverbial statement “Life is a tale told by an idiot” will remain true throughout the ages. But idiocy in our daily life has to be kept under control to derive maximum from our beautiful life. Tagore said, “I do not want to die in this beautiful world (Morite Chahina Aami Ei Sundar Bhuboane)”.

Autobiography book by Anil K Rajvanshi
This is an autobiography of Anil K Rajvanshi. Dr. Rajvanshi is a graduate of IIT Kanpur and a US trained engineer who left a lucrative career in US in early 1980s to come back and work in rural Maharashtra. He and his wife Dr. Nandini Nimbkar run a small NGO called Nimbkar Agricultural Research Institute, which works in the areas of agriculture, renewable energy, animal husbandry, and rural and sustainable development.
