Legends of Science
Viswanathan Sasisekharan Viswanathan Sasisekharan

Viswanathan Sasisekharan obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Madras in 1959. He has significant work on confirming biopolymers, especially polynucleotides and polypeptides. He developed incisive methods for arriving at the optimal conformation of macromolecules. Based on these methods, he has suggested a new alternative model for the Watson-Crick double-helical structure of DNA. Dr. Sasisekharan received the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar award in 1978; the J C Bose award in 1985; Fogarty Scholar in Residence, NIH in 1988-90.

Virendra Nath Pandey Virendra Nath Pandey

V N Pandey, a molecular virologist, and geneticist secured his Ph.D. from Mumbai University in 1985. Dr. Pandey has demonstrated the presence of a DNA recombinase enzyme complex associated with the thymic nuclear matrix of young rats. The complex occurs explicitly in prelymphocytes and is presumably involved in the rearrangement and recombination of genes to generate immunodiversity in vertebrates. He was the recipient of the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award in 1991.

Identification of a novel therapeutic target in Multiple Myeloma

12 January 2022, EureKAlert

Using murine models and tumors from patient biopsies, researchers demonstrated that mycolactone is highly toxic to multiple myeloma cells, including those that have become resistant to proteasome inhibitors, at doses that are non-toxic to normal cells...

Nuclei-free cells prove utility in delivering therapeutics to diseased tissues

14 January 2022, MedicalXpress

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health report successfully removing the nucleus out of a type of ubiquitous cell, known as enucleation, then using the genetically engineered cell as a unique cargo-carrier to deliver therapeutics precisely to diseased tissues...
