.D. in 1979. He joined the Central Institute for Cotton Research in 1979 as a cotton entomologist, and six months later he accepted an entomologist position at ICRISAT, becoming a principal scientist in 1994. He has been working at ICRISAT for the past 35 years. He was also a visiting scientist at the University of Wisconsin in 1987, and the Queensland Department of Primary Industries in 1996.

Dr. Sharma's major contributions are in the areas of insect bio-ecology, host-plant resistance, transgenics and molecular markers for insect resistance, biosafety of transgenic crops to nontarget organisms, and IPM. He has published more than 250 research papers, 150 book chapters, 10 research/information bulletins, and six books. Dr. Sharma has been instrumental in developing artificial diets for insect rearing, resistance screening techniques and mechanisms, inheritance of resistance to insects, and biosafety of transgenic plants to nontarget organisms. The insect-resistant varieties identified/developed by Dr. Sharma have been released for cultivation in Asia and Africa, and/or used in crop improvement in Asia, Africa, the USA, and Australia. His contributions in developing pest-resistant cultivars and IPM systems in cotton, cereals, and grain legumes will not only help reduce the huge losses by insect pests, but will also curtail pesticide use, thus minimizing environmental pollution. His work has also demonstrated that elimination of gut microflora makes Helicoverpa resistant to Bt toxins, and that variation in gut microflora may lead to the development of insect resistance to Bt transgenic crops.

Dr. Sharma's work has been recognized by various national and international organizations, including seven Gold Medals, the Hari Om Trust Award of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, the Excellence in Science Award of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research, and the International Plant Protection Award of the International Associ
