Satya Prakash Gupta who looks short in height but indeed tall in research takes his inspiration from the 1937 Nobel Prize for Medicine winner Hungarian Biochemist Albert Szent-Gyorgyi quote - Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.

He joined BITS in 1973 and has worked there ever since, studying the theoretical aspects of drug design. He has made notable contributions in this area, for which he has been bestowed upon, in 1989, the Ranbaxy Research Foundation Award, a coveted national award and in 1985 became Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, India (F.N.A.Sc.). He has been an advisory member of the Technical Resource Group on Research and Development on HIV/AIDS, constituted by Ministry of Health and Welfare, Government of India.

Professor SP Gupta has enjoyed his teaching and research for the last 35 years at BITS Pilani and 17th July 2008 his colleagues, current students and alumni across the globe wish him a happy retired life and an enjoyable tenure as Professor of Eminence at the Meerut institute where he will be joining shortly.

When I joined M.Pharm higher degree program on Jan 2000 in the pharmacy group to know more about QSAR, I approached Dr.S.P.Gupta and requested for a project work under him.In the process of working for the project,his explanation about QSAR was tremendous and I feel proud that I have worked under a great scientist in my life.May God bless him and his family.
