Born on 25th October, Prof N Madanagopalan obtained his MBBS degree in 1955 from Stanley Medical College winning medals, prizes and certificates of honour in most subjects and achieved the First rank in the University of Madras. He passed MD in Medicine in 1959 and received MRCP (Edinburg) with alimentary diseases as a special subject in 1960. On returning to India he joined his parent department of Medicine at Govt. General Hospital, Madras and established the Department of Gastroenterology in Madras Medical College in 1971. The symbiosis of passion for research (viral hepatitis, hepatocellular carcinoma, subacute hepatic failure, Coarctation of Inferior Vena Cava, role of adulterants of edible oil and tea leaves as cocarcinogens for HCC and adulteration of edible oil with rubber seed oil as cause for increasing prevalence of Chronic calcific pancreatitis) and his zeal for teaching enabled him to probe into unsolved problems spanning the spectrum of epidemiological, clinical and investigative aspects in gastroenterology. This culminated in over 200 publications. The N Madangopalan Oration was instituted by the Indian Association for Study of the Liver in the year 2003 to commemorate the memory and contributions. This year’s oration will be delivered by Dr. Vivek A Saraswat.
