NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS

  • IBAB PhD students Sara Ashok and Dimple Acharya won the 2nd and 3rd place, respectively, for their e-poster presentations in the Original Research category during iCRISPR-2021, the first national conference on “CRISPR/Cas:From Biology to Technology” jointly organised by IBAB and SRM University-AP.  Winners were selected from 40+ e-poster presenters. We congratulate them and hope that they continue to shine.

  • Prof. Kshitish Acharya has recently published a book chapter titled ‘Precision molecular imaging can perhaps be enhanced for lung cancer management via integrated analysis of general parameters such as age, gender, genetics, and lifestyle’ in Detection Systems in Lung Cancer and Imaging, Volume 1 (Bristol: IOP Publishing). In this chapter, Prof. Kshitish discusses gender as a special case of a general parameter that has the potential to contribute to precision medicine in the area of molecular imaging.

  • The oncogenomics research of Prof. Bibha Choudhary, which led to the identification of 114 genetic variants linked to oral cancer in Indian populations, was recently picked up by several news channels. The research was conducted jointly by IBAB and doctors from HCG Cancer Centre, using IBAB’s in-house state-of-the-art genomics facility. A press conference was organised on the occasion of World Cancer Day, and the research was commended by C.N. Ashwatha Narayana, Minister for IT/BT and Science and Technology, Govt. of Karnataka.
