BENGALURU: India's biotech queen and Biocon Chairperson Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw has been conferred with an honorary doctorate from Deakin University in Australia's Victoria state for her contribution to biotechnology, the company said on Wednesday.

"Kiran has been recognised for her entrepreneurial role in the field of biotechnology and for her sustained contribution to industry-academia collaboration between Australia and India," the city-based Biocon said.

Mazumdar-Shaw was appointed as the Australian Global Alumni Ambassador by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in 2016 and is also the Victorian Business Ambassador for the government of the southeast Australian state of Victoria.

"I am proud to receive this coveted recognition from Deakin University and inspired to be presented with the honour in the year when Deakin is celebrating 25 years of association with India," the Biocon chief said on the occasion.
