The surface of a cell is a dynamic place - like children in a busy playground, molecules move around in apparently random patterns. However, there is order in this ostensibly chaotic system. Since many of the cell's sensors reside on its surface, they often aggregate specifically in response to a stimulus to transmit information about the environment into the cell. But what are the rules that govern the movement of such molecules on the cell surface?
The National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) completes 25 years this October!
To commemorate the occasion, NCBS has created an institutional archive. The NCBS Archives will work closely with the TIFR Archives to become a vital resource centre for historical research on NCBS. The Archives also aims to serve as a hub for dialogue on the history of research in the biological sciences in India.
Prof. Satyajit Mayor, Director, National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) and Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem), is the latest recipient of the prestigious Margdarshi fellowship.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been renewed between the institutes at the Bangalore Life Science Cluster and The University of Edinburgh on the 18th of February 2016, to reinforce ongoing collaborations and create a framework for developing new areas of mutual interest.
