Vikram Professors

The Vikram Sarabhai Professorship was instituted at PRL in 1977 to provide a continuing stimulus to the young researchers at PRL and to expose them to the latest developments in the various areas of research through interaction with distinguished researchers around the world. The institution of this professorship was made possible mainly through the funds provided by the Sarabhai Foundation, Karmakshetra Charity Trust (No. 2) and the Kasturbhai Lalbhai Charity Trust. This scheme provides for inviting distinguished scientists to spend some time at PRL in delivering lectures, on topics of high currnt interest and participation and participating in research programmes of the laboratory if possible.
