Legends of Science
W M Vaidya W M Vaidya

W M Vaidya obtained his PhD from the University of London, UK. His areas of research were optics and spectroscopy. His significant achievement was the discovery of a new band system named after him in the spectra of hydrocarbon flame. He was Assistant Director Optics Division, National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi. Dr Vaidya was elected President of the Physics Section Indian Science Congress.

Ajit Ram Verma Ajit Ram Verma

Ajit Ram Verma received his PhD from the University of London in 1952. He did pioneering research on the direct measurement of metric thicknesses of Blodgett-Langmuir molecular films. He made significant contributions in the field of crystal growth and the study of lattice imperfections, including establishing an X-ray diffraction topography facility for the investigation of single crystals of technologically important crystals. Dr Verma received the S S Bhatnagar (1964) and Padma Bhushan (1982). He was the elected Fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore and the National Academy of Sciences, Allahabad.

CAR T cell therapy may eliminate tumor cells missed by surgery

11 January 2023, EurekAlert

Researchers applied a special gel containing human CAR T cells to surgical wounds in mice following partial tumor removal. They found that in almost all cases, the CAR T cells apparently eliminated the residual tumor cells allowing the mice to survive when they otherwise would have succumbed to tumor recurrence...
