mal was born in Pune on 08 November 1917. Her parents were Dinesh Dattatreya Samarath and Shantabai Dinkar Samarth. Her father was a biologist who taught in the Fergusson College, Pune. He ensured that all his children were well educated. Kamal was a bright student. She had her schooling at the Huzurpaga: the H.H.C.P. High School. Her father wanted her to study medicine and also marry a doctor. But she decided otherwise. she started her college education at the Fergusson college with Botany and Zoology as her main subjects. She got her Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree with distinction in 1934. She then moved to the Agriculture College at Pune where she did her master's degree (M.Sc.) in 1943 with cytogenetics of annocacae as the special subject. She then married J. T. Ranadive, a mathematician on 13 May 1939 and shifted to Bombay. They had a son, named Anil Jaysingh.

In Bombay (now known as Mumbai), she worked at the Tata Memorial Hospital. Her husband, Ranadive, was a great help in her postgraduate studies in Cytology; this subject had been chosen by her father. Here, she also worked for her doctoral degree (Doctor of Philosophy) at the Bombay University. Her guide was Dr. V. R. Khanolkar, a pathologist of repute and the founder of the Indian Cancer Research Centre (ICRC). After she received her Ph.D. from the University of Bombay in 1949, she was encouraged by Khanolkar to seek a fellowship at an American University. She obtained a postdoctoral research fellowship to work on tissue culture techniques and work with George Gey (famous for his innovation laborator HeLa cell line) in his laboratory at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. She is related to Dhruva G.

Kamal, on her return to India, rejoined ICRC and started her professional career as a Senior Research Officer. She was instrumental in establishing Experimental Biology Laboratory and Tissue Culture Laboratory in Bombay. From 1966 to 1970 she had assumed the mantle of the Director of the Indian Cancer Research Centre in an acting capacity. In the early 1960s, she along with her assistants (whom she had inducted into ICRC) in the fields of biology and chemistry, developed tissue culture media and related reagents. She was also responsible for establishing new research units in Carcinogenesis, Cell biology and Immunology. Her career achievements include research on the pathophysiology of cancer through the medium of animals which led to a further appreciation of causes of diseases such as leukaemia, breast cancer and Esophageal cancer. Another notable achievement was in establishing a link to the susceptibility of cancer and hormones and tumour virus relationship. Evolution of the lepr
 osy vaccine was a result of her basic research on the bacteria related to leprosy. She was a great inspiration to Indian women scientists to work on cancer research, in particular on the subject cancer among women and children. One such project was on "Immunohematology of Tribal Blood" related to study of infa
