For top Indian-origin scientists: UK honour

The designer of the Large Hadron Collider, a Bangalore-based biologist and a mathematician described as “extremely original” are among six Indian-origin scientists elected to the prestigious Fellowship of the Royal Society for 2012.
The society, which was founded in 1660 to recognise, promote and support excellence in science, has over the years awarded the Fellowship to nearly 1,500 individuals, including Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Isaac Newton and Tim Berners-Lee.
The six Indian-origin scientists are among 44 experts elected for 2012 and include Tejinder Singh Virdee, Professor of Physics at Imperial College London, who is distinguished for the design, construction and exploitation of the huge CMC (Compact Muon Solenoid) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
