Globally recognized as the ‘Father of Green Nanotechnology’, Professor Kattesh V. Katti, MSc Ed, PhD, DSc, FRSC, FNAI, Curators’ Professor of Radiology, Director, Institute of Green Nanotechnology, within the Medical School, University of Missouri, Columbia, USA—is internationally renowned as a leader in the interconnecting fields of—chemistry, radiopharmaceutical sciences, nanotechnology/green nanotechnology and nanomedicine—for biomedical applications, specifically for molecular imaging and therapy of living subjects. Dr. Katti is considered to be a pioneer in the field of Nano-Ayurvedic Medicine—a new medical modality which he has discovered by the application of Green Nanotechnology to Ayurvedic-Holistic Medicine. The US Patents and Trade Marks office has approved the use of ‘Nano-Ayurvedic Medicine’ name in the products of this new medical modality. For the ground breaking discoveries in medicine, Dr. Katti has been awarded a number of international awards and citations, which include: 2019 WHOs WHO Marquis “Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award; 2018 Professor of the European Union in Green Nanotechnology;”; 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Missouri for his life time achievements; Winner of the 2016 ‘Person of the Year in Science’ award. Dr. Katti was selected for this coveted award for his pioneering research in Green Nanotechnology with applications to Nanomedicine. Dr. Katti has won the International Hevesy Medal Award (2015)—A Global award for excellence in Nuclear Sciences and Nuclear Medicine—considered equivalent to a Nobel Prize in Nuclear Sciences; Elected to the fellowship of the National Academy of Inventors (2015) recognizing the discovery of ‘Katti Peptides’—a group of peptides used in biomedical sciences and nanomedicine research. In recognitions of his ground breaking discoveries of radioactive gold nanoparticles in cancer therapy with implications in theranostics and plethora of original research in SPECT imaging, Dr. Katti has been recognized as One of the ‘25 Most Influential Scientists In Molecular Imaging in the World’ by RT Image. Dr. Katti has received the ‘Father of Green Nanotechnology’ citation by the Nobel Prize Winner Norman Borlaug, and has been bestowed with the Gauss Professorship—Hall of Fame—from the Gottingen Academy of Sciences. Dr. Katti is the first immigrant American to win the ‘Outstanding Missourian Award’—the highest civilian award from the Governor of the State of Missouri; former awardees of this highly coveted award include Walter Elias “Walt” Disney, Mark Twain, and Walter Cronkite…Dr. Katti has won the ‘Outstanding Scientists Fellows’ award and inducted as a Fellow of the St Louis Academy of Science—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 nanoscale chemistry, particularly for ground breaking discoveries enabling application of nanotechnology concepts for biomedical applications”. His unprecedented discoveries 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, and by the Discovery Channel.
Dr. Katti is credited with discovering and commercializing over a dozen cancer therapy and antibiotics drugs through Green Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine approaches.
Dr. Katti’s researches in Cancer Treatment through Nanomedicine and Green Nanotechnology have been highlighted in scientific/medical programs of the Voice of America (January 2017):
and the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC, London).
Dr. Katti is the chief editor, editorial board member or member of advisory boards of a number internationally reputed peer reviewed scientific journals.
Dr. Katti has published over 300 publications, reviews, and book chapters and is the principle inventor on over 150 inventions and over 50 patents. He has delivered over 500 Inaugural/Plenary/Invited lectures in 25 countries.
