Legends of Science
Jamshedji Jijibhoy Chinoy Jamshedji Jijibhoy Chinoy

Jamshedji Jijibhoy Chinoy obtained his PhD from the University of London, UK, in 1935. His research topics were plant physiology and agricultural botany. His pioneering work being the role of ascorbic acid in plant growth. His other research topics were the energy requirement of crop plants, physiology of inheritance and selection of high-yielding varieties based on flowering time, and classification of wheat varieties based on their pre-sowing hardening treatment of seed for inducing resistance to drought and salinity. He received the Rafi Ahmed Kidwai Memorial Prize (1975). He was the President of the Physiology section of IX International Botanical Congress, Montreal (1963).

Cancer study identifies molecular pathways associated with tumor metastasis

16 February 2023, MedicalNewsToday

These findings suggest that a single treatment may not be suitable for all metastasized cancers and individualized treatments, developed in accordance with the gene expression profile of the tumor, could be more effective...

Small molecule drug reverses ADAR1-induced cancer stem cell cloning capacity

16 February 2023, EurekAlert

Researchers identified that a late-stage, pre-clinical small molecule inhibitor, called rebecsinib, reverses malignant hyper-editing by an inflammation-induced protein isoform, known as ADAR1 p150...

A study refines a molecular marker that accurately predicts the recurrence of aggressive meningiomas

17 February 2023, MedicalXpress

Researchers have found that the loss of a single copy of CDKNA/B genes can greatly accelerate the recurrence of aggressive meningiomas, portending a poor prognosis for this subset of patients...
