Prof. Gaiti Hasan, a molecular geneticist at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), was recently elected as Vice President of the Indian National Science Academy (INSA). After thirteen years as a fellow of INSA, this year, the Academy has sought her counsel in strengthening their activities and initiating new programmes.
Prof Gaiti's work addresses systemic and cellular consequences of changes in intracellular calcium levels in animals. Her lab addresses InsP3 receptor function in the model organism Drosophila using genetic, molecular, cellular, electrophysiological and behavioral methods.
