The Infosys Science Foundation  honoured winners of the Infosys Prize 2015 for their outstanding achievements and contributions to research in the fields of science and humanities.

The prize is given in six categories — engineering and computer science, humanities, life sciences, mathematical sciences, physical sciences and social sciences. The laureate in each category was awarded a purse of Rs.65 lakh, a 22-karat gold medallion and a citation certificate.

“Their work spans fields as diverse as analytical Indian philosophy, the atomic structure of the killer malaria parasite and India&’s foreign and security policies. Their research analyses the world we live in on several complex planes, and helps us understand it better. Jury panels that are headed by the most eminent names in international research selected the recipients,” said SD Shibulal, president, board of trustees, Infosys Science Foundation.
