Hannes Stockinger (born May 8, 1955) is an Austrian scientist, university professor and since 2010 Head of the Centre for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology and the Institute for Hygiene and Applied Immunology at the Medical University of Vienna.

Hannes Stockinger and his research team discovered and described for the first time a number of critical receptors on the surface of immune cells, which not only provide an insight into the regulation of the immune system, but are also potential targets for therapeutic purposes. In addition, his research on cell membrane structures called lipid rafts is of significant importance: Today, it is believed that these lipid-rafts are the first coordinating points of the cell, which process and control the signals from the environment.

Dr. Irfan Ahmed Rind

Head of Department, Associate Professor, Sukkur Institute of Business Administration University, Sukkur

Glory after every fall’ might be the best expression to define his to-date and future achievements. Enthusiasm, excitement, passion, commitment, and most importantly optimism are the qualities in keeping the above expression alive. The journey started in 2000 when refused admission in a medical university— a shattered dream to have a title of ‘Dr.’ in front of his name to live the expectations of his parents. Became Dr. anyway after: securing first positions in B.A and M.A English literature in 2005 from University of Sindh, Jamshoro Pakistan; becoming the one of four applicants from all over Pakistan to secure the best scholarship of HEC in 2007; getting M.A Applied Linguistics from Sussex University UK in 2008; and finishing PhD with a thesis that the external examiner defined as ‘a quality piece of work’ in 2012 from Sussex University UK.

Such successes brought humbleness and modesty; at the same time increased the level of enthusiasm and commitment to continue the same chain of success in research and teaching. He believes that individual success is strongly associated with the institution’s success in which one studies/works. Thus, efforts should always be made in developing and promoting the home institution. It was done for University of Sindh by making it as the focus of his PhD thesis; same was done for Sussex University by promoting it worldwide as international student ambassador and representing it in different forums as a researcher. And now all efforts are put together to promote and enhance Department of Education at Sukkur IBA.
