V. Prasad Kodali

Shirley M. Tilghman

For sustained contributions to IEEE, its
Boards and Committees, and for pioneering the development of Region 10

For leadership in bridging quantitative biology and engineering and for
advancing higher education

V. Prasad Kodali has worked tirelessly as an IEEE volunteer at
many levels for four decades to promote the growth and visibility
of IEEE in India and other countries. Dr. Kodali has served IEEE
at the Society, Section, and Regional levels as well as IEEE secretary and as a member of Institute-level boards and committees.
Dr. Kodali was the first person from India elected by the membership to serve as director of Region 10, which encompasses the
Asia Pacific area. As director, Dr. Kodali made a policy of initiating discussions with national engineering societies in Japan,
Australia, and India for cooperation agreements that eventually led to the development of programs in Japan, Singapore,
India, Hong Kong, and Australia that were instrumental in growing Region 10's membership to one of the largest within IEEE.
As Chair of the IEEE Educational Activities Board's Transnational
Committee, Dr. Kodali brought together educational activities
chairs from Regions 7 through 10 to identify common concerns
so these transnational members could receive the greatest benefit
from IEEE educational programs. Dr. Kodali was also instrumental
in the success of the volunteer-driven exhibits project displayed
at the Birla Science Center in Hyderabad, India in 2013, which
was designed to spur interest in engineering and sciences among
high school students. Dr. Kodali's other volunteer positions include founder and chair of the IEEE India Council's Aerospace
and Electronic Systems Society/Communications Society Joint
Chapter and the following Institute-level groups: IEEE Constitution, Bylaws and Policy Statements Committee; IEEE Executive
Committee; IEEE Finance Committee; IEEE Ethics Committee;
IEEE Long Range Planning Committee; IEEE Fellows Committee; IEEE Membership Development Committee; IEEE Life
Member Committee; IEEE Accreditation Policy Council; IEEE
Awards Board; and IEEE Publications Board.
An IEEE Life Fellow and recipient of the 1984 IEEE Centennial Medal, Dr. Kodali retired in 1997 as an adviser to the government of India's Department of Electronics, New Delhi, India.

A champion of integrating biological sciences and engineering
for the advancement of technology, Shirley M. Tilghman is responsible for groundbreaking discoveries in genetics and leading Princeton University's engineering program to substantial
growth by incorporating exposure to many scientific disciplines.
Dr. Tilghman participated in cloning the first mammalian gene
and also identified the H19 gene, which was important to
genomic imprinting. She was one of the founding members of
the National Advisory Council of the Human Genome Project
for the U.S. National Institutes of Health and helped set the blueprint for the U.S. effort in the Human Genome Project. As a
professor at Princeton University, Dr. Tilghman envisioned the
need to bring multiple scientific disciplines together to better
interpret genomic data. In 1998, she became founding director
of Princeton's Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics,
which promoted collaboration among chemical engineering,
computer science, molecular biology, physics, and chemistry. Under Dr. Tilghman's leadership as president of Princeton (2001
to 2013), the engineering program realized increases in enrollment, sponsored funding, and facility space. During her tenure,
Dr. Tilghman promoted integration between the engineering
program and the liberal arts, and she instituted key educational
initiatives. The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment was established to conduct research on new energy and environmental technologies, and the Keller Center for Innovation
in Engineering Education was created to promote experiential
learning, entrepreneurship, and leadership. She also helped launch
the Princeton Neuroscience Institute and Princeton Center for
Theoretical Science. Dr. Tilghman is also known for her national
leadership in advancing the careers of women in science and engineering, serving as a role model and mentor.
A Fellow of the Royal Society of London and member of the
U.S. Institute of Medicine, Dr.Tilghman is President Emerita and
a professor of molecular biology at Princeton University, N.J.

Scope: For outstanding service to IEEE

Scope: For those who have rendered meritorious service to humanity in IEEE's designated fields of interest and who are not
members of IEEE
