Dr. Sukumar Saha of the United States was recognized as the ICAC Researcher of the Year during the Inaugural Session of the 70th Plenary Meeting of the ICAC in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Dr. Sukumar Saha has a total of thirty-five years of professional research experience. He is recognized as an international authority for the development of genetic and cytogenetic resources that are being used by the scientists around the world. He has developed, evaluated and released backcrossed interspecific chromosome substitution lines from other tetraploid cotton species.

This research opens new paradigms in cotton breeding and genetics studies providing a tool to overcome the problems of interspecific introgression and in the discovery of some novel genes or traits. He also made a major contribution in developing PCR-based SSR markers, a critical first step for the use of PCR-based marker technologies in the cotton breeding.

Dr. Saha has mentored many Ph.D. students, post-docs and visiting scientists in his lab. His research productivity is well documented in about 130 publications including about 80 peer-reviewed journal articles in many prominent journals, one germplasm release notice, a co-edited book, additional multiple papers and abstracts in presentations as an invited speakers. Dr. Saha's creativity, work ethic, and accomplishments exemplify the spirit of the ICAC award.
