Vartika Joshi has crammed her laptop with movies and has picked books to carry for an eight-month stint riding sea waves. But those idyllic-sounding distractions are only to keep her sane. For the most part, she'll be leading a mission unlike any undertaken by Asian women. Joshi is one of six women officers from the Indian Navy who will set off from Goa in the first week of September to circumnavigate the earth on a sailing boat in a bid to create history and lend greater heft to India's burgeoning naval ambitions.
The 3D patch has high cell density, a foremost requirement for heart tissue.
Scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati have fabricated a 3D cardiac tissue patch using silk protein membranes seeded with heart muscle cells. The patch can potentially be used for regenerating damaged heart tissue.
Cardiac tissue gets permanently damaged when oxygen supply is reduced or cut off during a heart attack. The damaged portion gets scarred and does not contract and relax, which over time leads to a change in the shape of the heart and reduced pumping capacity.
While currently available grafts fail to mimic the structure and the function of the native heart tissue as well as maintain high cell numbers, the patch developed by the IIT Guwahati researchers scores over these on many counts. The results were published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B.
The 3D patch has high cell density, a foremost requirement for heart tissue.
Cheaper and credible launches and India’s overall expertise is driving South American countries towards the Indian Space and Research Organisation (ISRO) for launching their satellites. For launching its first homemade palm-sized satellite, the University of Chile got a ride onboard the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C38 rocket recently. The faculty of the university is in talks with professors at IIT-Madras for doing joint missions.
Confirming the launch, Indian ambassador to Chile Anita Nayar told FE: “One launch, of SUCHAI, the nano-satellite of the University of Chile, was successfully accomplished by ISRO at the end of June 2017. The SUCHAI project is a standardised satellite of Cubesat type of 1 litre of volume and 1 kg of weight. It is the first satellite built in Chile by students at the university.”
