Jalandhar Jan 3:
Its only few hours away !! #Wednesday Wisdom

Prime Minister Narendra Modi to inaugurate 106th Indian Science Congress #106thISC today at Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, #Punjab.

It is only the second time for a University of Punjab to organize this mega science spectacle. ISC2019.


Duncan Haldane will be participating in 106th Science Congress #106thISC #IndianScienceCongress #ISC2019

Duncan Haldane was born in London, Great Britain. He studied at Cambridge University, where he received a PhD in 1978. His supervisor was the future Nobel Laureate, Philip Anderson.

Work

Matter occurs in different phases, for example as a gas, liquid or solid. At very low temperatures unusual phases may occur, for example, superconductivity and unusual types of magnetism. To describe these phases and phase transitions Duncan Haldane used the concepts of topology, a branch of mathematics. For example, during the 1980s, he explained the magnetic properties of chains of atoms in certain materials. In the future, these results may contribute to the development of new materials and electronic components.

Dr Avram Hershko will be participating in 106th Science Congress #106thISC

Hershko was born on December 31, 1937, in Karcag, Hungary. He was awarded 2004 Nobel Prize of Chemistry for Ubiquitine mediated protein degradation.

Avram Hershko, Hungary (Israeli citizen). Doctor’s degree in medicine in 1969 at the Hadassah and the Hebrew University Medical School, Jerusalem. Distinguished Professor at the Rappaport Family Institute for Research in Medical Sciences at the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology), Haifa, Israel.


Thomas C. Sudhof will be participating in 106th Science Congress #106thISC

Thomas C. Sudhof was born on 22 December 955 in Gottingen, Germany. The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2013.

Work

The cells inside our bodies produce a host of different molecules that are sent to specific sites. During transport, many of these molecules are grouped together in tiny sac-like structures called vesicles. These vesicles help transport substances to different places inside the cell and send molecules from the cell's surface as signals to other cells in the body. By studying brain cells from mice, in the 1990s Thomas Südhof demonstrated how vesicles are held in place, ready to release signal-bearing molecules at the right moment.
