Ashwani Pareek's Biography

Ashwani Pareek, Professor, Jawaharlal Nehru University

Dr Ashwani Pareek is a Professor of Life Sciences at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi. He obtained his B.Sc. (Botany) and M.Sc. (Plant Molecular Biology) in 1990 and 1992, respectively, from the University of Delhi, India. His research work during Ph.D. focused on the analysis of heat shock proteins (HSPs, especially HSP90) and salt stress proteins (SSPs) in rice. The main focus of his research has been towards an understanding of the signaling machinery in plants operative under osmotic stresses such as salinity and drought. He uses the tools of functional genomics, transgenics and bioinformatics to dissect out the cascades of events leading to these stresses in plants, especially the steps involved in “osmosensing”. Ashwani’s honours include: The President of India award for Technology Development, National Academy of Sciences NASI RELIANCE Platinum Jubilee Award for Industry oriented research, The Fellowship (FNAAS) by the National Academy of Agricultural Science The Fellowship of National Academy of Sciences (FNASc), the Indian National Science Academy (INSA)-ROYAL SOCIETY (UK) exchange visitor’s fellowship 2005 the BOYSCAST Fellowship by Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India (2001); award of “The Rockefeller Foundation” Post-doctoral fellowship in the area of advanced ‘Plant Molecular Biology’ as a part of the ‘Rice Biotechnology Program’.
