Yusuf Khwaja Hamied is a leading Indian scientist who serves as chairman of Cipla, a socially conscious generic pharmaceuticals company founded by his father Khwaja Abdul Hamied in 1935.
Born in Vilnius, Lithuania, Yusuf Hamied was raised in Bombay (now known as Mumbai). His Indian Muslim father and Russophone Jewish mother met in Berlin, where they both were graduate students. He holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from Christ's College, Cambridge. He still uses his chemistry notebooks from Cambridge when he develops new syntheses of drugs.
He is an alumnus of the Cathedral and John Connon School in Bombay. Affectionately called Yuku by his close friends, Hamied is fond of Western classical music and has been close friends with the world-famous conductor Zubin Mehta since boyhood.
Hamied is best known outside India for defying large Western pharmaceutical companies in order to provide generic AIDS drugs and treatments for other ailments primarily affecting people in poor countries. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 2005.
Hamied has led efforts to eradicate AIDS in the developing world and to give patients life-saving medicines regardless of their ability to pay, and has often been characterized as a modern-day Robin Hood figure as a result.
In September 2011, in a piece about how he was trying to radically lower costs of biotech drugs for cancer, diabetes and other noncommunicable diseases, The New York Times wrote of Hamied:
In 2009 the Yusuf Hamied Centre was opened at Christ's College, Cambridge.
Yusuf Hamied has been the subject of in-depth profiles in The New York Times, Time magazine, The Guardian, Le Monde, The Economist, the Financial Times, The Times (London), Corriere della Sera, Der Spiegel, Wired and numerous other leading publications, as well as on television outlets such as ABC News, the BBC, CNN and CBS' 60 Minutes.
