Biochemist Priyanka Joshi and Meghan Markle On UK's Most Influential Women List

by Vibhuti Gupta, Saturday, June 02, 2018

Indian-origin biochemist, Priyanka Joshi has been named alongside Hollywood actress-turned-royal Meghan Markle, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney and bestselling author J K Rowling as the 25 most influential and aspirational women in the UK by Vogue magazine.

Meghan Markle married Prince Harry on May 18, 2018

"Priyanka Joshi had barely completed her PhD when 'Forbes' named her one of the most important young faces in science. A research fellow at Downing College, Cambridge, the 29-year-old sits at the cutting edge of Alzheimer's research, and has been praised for her ground-breaking work building a 'library' of drug-like molecules to target irregular proteins that cause degenerative brain diseases," notes the citation on the young biochemist.

"With dementia now the leading cause of death for women in England and Wales, her early breakthroughs and research could not be more vital," it adds in reference to Ms Joshi, who completed her MSc in Biotechnology from University of Pune before moving to the UK.

Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex after her marriage to Prince Harry earlier this month, is described as "an extraordinary cast of leaders defining and redefining the way we live now".

For Harry Potter author Rowling, the fashion publication notes her enduring influence as a result of the hit Broadway stage production of 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'.

"No surprise that 52-year-old Rowling is now the world's highest-paid author. A generation belongs to her," it says.

The list, which also includes fashion designer Stella McCartney and three 'Guardian' journalists, is categorised as "an extraordinary cast of leaders defining - and redefining - the way we live now".
