  • Prof. Kshitish K Acharya of IBAB participated in two TV panel discussions recently to share his views on Covid-19 related topics in the News First Kannada (Uttara Kodi) program.

  • Mr. Govindkumar Balagannavar, an IBAB PhD student working with Prof. Kshitish K Acharya, is one of the recipients of the Student Innovations for Advancement of Research Explorations and Gandhian Young Technological Innovation (SITARE-GYTI*) appreciation award in a nation-wide competition (2020-21) organised by BIRAC, the Honey Bee Network, and SRISTI. His proposed project is titled, “A diagnostic kit to minimize risks from the micro-TESE procedure while differentiating nonobstructive vs. obstructive azoospermia”. About 50 young innovators were recognized amongst applicants from across India, which included students from prestigious scientific institutions such as IISc and IITs.

  • IBAB’s Research Seminar Series was proud to host two eminent scientists in November. Prof. Shailja Singh of Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, spoke about ‘Plasmodium falciparum Perforin like proteins triggered intracellular calcium and program cell death in bystander erythrocytes and endothelium contribute tomalaria-induced anemia and pathogenesis’. Prof. Arun Sripati of Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, spoke about ‘If we can make computers play chess, why can’t we make them see?’. Both seminars were engaging and resulted in insightful discussions. We thank the speakers for taking time to share their research stories with IBABians.
