Legends of Science
Baji Vinayak Thosar Baji Vinayak Thosar

Baji Vinayak Thosar obtained his PhD from Birmingham University, UK. His interest was in nuclear physics and solid-state physics. His pioneering work included positron Annihilation, beta-ray spectroscopy, development of an empirical 'free volume' model to explain the correlation between the intensity and the long-lived component in the decay of the ortho-positronium. Dr Thosar was the elected fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore and President Indian Science Congress (1969). He was the President Maharashtra Academy of Sciences (1982-85).

Actin affects the spread of cancer in several ways

24 January 2023, EurekAlert

Actin filaments are part of the cell skeleton and essential for stability and motility. They form a network that dynamically builds up and gets broken down by the addition or detachment of building blocks at the filaments’ ends...

Researchers identify possible approach to prevent cancer from evolving to resist treatment

26 January 2023, MedicalXpress

Through analysis of tumor biopsies taken from patients before targeted therapy and then at the time of clinical relapse, the team found that the melanoma genome can undergo extensive 'shattering and re-stitching' in response to targeted therapy in a process called chromothripsis...

Researchers identify molecular mechanism connected to cancer, heart disease

26 January 2023, Pharmacy Times

Researchers conducted structural analyses that revealed the formation of a complex of 3 PCSK9 partner proteins, including the LDL receptors, CAP1, and HLA-C. HLA-C was found to play a very important role, directing the entire complex toward the lysosomes...
