Dr. Animesh Kumar Chakraborty started his career in teaching and research somewhat late after postgraduation at Jabalpur. He was a Ph.D. from Calcutta University, and very keen in research and teaching. Most of the departments sent their postgraduate or doctoral candidates to him for standardization of several critical biochemical profiles. He collaborated with a famous department in India in the name of "Agricultural Chemistry and Soil Science" under Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya for the Ph.D. program of

Dr. Tapan Kumar Mandal.

The entire pesticide research would have been lacking without a series of live metabolic studies in different animal systems. Dr. Chakraborty established a unique research laboratory in the Department of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology that could serve as an example of his in-depth contribution, devotion, and sacrifice. Dr. Chakraborty proved that the synthetic pyrethroid is not as toxic as we pretend.

One of the best scientist in Veterinary profession since independence in West Bengal, he was conferred a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Society of Pesticide, India, for his contribution in the field of pesticide metabolism in large animals and he subsequently also became the President of Indian Pharmacological Society, West Bengal Branch. Respected for his exquisite research talent, he was felicitated with Life-time Achievement Award by Indian Pharmacological Society at the 42 nd National Conference at Kolkata in December, 2009. He guided a number of Ph.D. scholars and 50 M.V.Sc students. He worked as the Principal Investigator of several Government and privately funded projects. He published more than 150 research papers at journals of national and international repute. Dr. Chakraborty continued his work until end.

We live with his memories; we grow with his blessings and stand because of his efforts. It is an irreparable loss to the field of Pharmacology and Toxicology. May his great soul rest in peace.
