Dr. Singh is always concerned about the current scenario of the science education in various rural parts of India. He thinks about many societal issues, such as, science education, health, environment and agricultural issues. He always wanted to do something for the betterment of the society specially by implementing science and technology. He found himself more positive and strong for doing something for society after his USA trip. In USA, he observed that the educated and working people used to organize several charitable programme selflessly for needy people in their society. He realized that it’s our moral responsibility and duty to do something for our society if one is eligible in doing this. Then after, he determined that he would serve his great effort towards the betterment of science education, technology, modern health and agricultural issues in our country. For smooth flow of his determination, he registered the Non-profit/Non-Government Organization, Indian Scientific Education & Technology Foundation (ISET) in Dec 2016 along with his colleague Mr. Shailendra Mishra. This NGO has been working for promotion of science and technology at all possibilities of performance.
The mission of ISET Foundation is to improve the quality of science education in India and to ensure that along with theoretical part, children also get equal opportunity to perform scientific practical work in schools. It will be accomplished by working in collaboration with the government, local communities, parents, teachers, volunteers, and civil society members. Organization’s aim is to supplement in science education along with governmental efforts. It is sure, that the foundation will help in achieving the advancement in science education through facilitating the excellent scientific education, various awareness programmes, promoting the innovative ideas, and by endorsing entrepreneurship, to develop competitiveness and stewardship towards science.
“I believe that we have a chance to build a world in which all human beings can live with new era of science and utilize the Science & Tech in quotidian. It starts with imagine that world and then working together.”
I, Shailendra, am the Co-founder and Vice-president of Indian Scientific Education and Technology (ISET) Foundation, a non-profit/non-governmental organization. Dr. Sandeep and I are leading the organization towards achieving the mission and vision of my NGO. Backwardness of India in science education had pushed to us (Dr. Sandeep and I) to establish the ISET Foundation for serving the society after completion my post graduation.
I did Master of Science in Molecular and Human Genetics from Jiwaji University, Gwalior, India and research project from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India and did a Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Technology (Pathology) from H.N.B. Garhwal (Central) University, Uttrakhand, India along with six months internship from Max Hospital, New Delhi.
All my education and training played a key role in increasing my confidence and helping me to understand various concepts in science and to mould my research interests. I possess versed communication skills and am able to relate to a wide range of people, as proven by my varied work experiences. I believe that my perseverance and enthusiasm could help me to achieve our vision and mission.
When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome……

Dr. Aamir Nazir is senior scientist at laboratory of ‘Functional Genomics and Molecular Toxicology’ in the Division of Toxicology of CSIR - Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow. He is working on C. elegans model system, which is employed for the studies because of its immense genetic relevance; it exhibits appreciable homology of gene sequences with that of humans, is accessible for carrying out genetic manipulations and presents with multiple disease pathways that are conserved across the taxa.
The first ever-genetic understanding of Alzheimer’s disease came from research with C. elegans that led to identification of Presenilin-1 (orthologue of C. elegans sel-12). C. elegans was the first multi-cellular organism to have it genome mapped and the process of RNAi induced gene silencing was first discovered in this model. Work with C. elegans has resulted in award of Nobel Prize to six scientists for their pioneering work that has significantly aided in understanding of multiple biological processes including understanding of various human disease conditions.
