Today, June 18, 2023, marks the 112th birthday of Dr. Kamala Sohonie, a pioneering Indian biochemist who broke many barriers for women in science.

Dr. Sohonie was born in Indore, India, in 1912. Her parents were both chemists, and she was inspired by their work to pursue a career in science herself. She studied chemistry and physics at Bombay University, where she graduated at the top of her class in 1933. She then went on to earn a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Cambridge in 1937.

After completing her PhD, Dr. Sohonie returned to India and joined the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore. She worked at IISc for over 30 years, where she made significant contributions to the field of biochemistry. She is best known for her discovery of the enzyme cytochrome C, which is involved in cellular respiration.

Dr. Sohonie was a trailblazer for women in science. She was one of the first women to earn a PhD in a scientific discipline in India, and she broke down barriers for women in academia and research. She was a role model for many young women who dreamed of pursuing careers in science, and she inspired them to never give up on their dreams.

Dr. Sohonie passed away in 2000, but her legacy continues to inspire and motivate others. She is a reminder that anything is possible if you set your mind to it, and that women can achieve anything they set their hearts to.

In honor of Dr. Sohonie’s birthday, Google has created a Doodle in her likeness. The Doodle features Dr. Sohonie working in a laboratory, surrounded by test tubes and beakers. The Doodle is a fitting tribute to a brilliant scientist who made significant contributions to the field of biochemistry.

Dr. Kamala Sohonie was a remarkable woman who broke barriers and paved the way for women in science. She is an inspiration to us all, and her legacy will live on for generations to come.
