Indian Scientists Gain Fresh Perspective On German Research Opportunities
From touring leading research institutes in Germany to meeting 25 Nobel Laureates from different fields of science and research, the Lindau Meet and Post-Lindau Tour is every young researcher's dream come true. Every year a group of young Indian scientists from a particular subject are chosen from institutes across the country to attend the two-week long programme. All expenses for the group are jointly covered by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Phytochemicals offer new clues for breast cancer treatment
Extracts from plants ranging from cabbages to figs are offering new clues for prevention or improvement of breast cancer treatment. Several plant chemicals or phytochemicals are being tested for their ability to arrest the growth of breast cancer cells in animal models, according to scientists attending an international conference on cancer research in New Delhi.
The three-day conference on 'Current Advances in Radiobiology, Stem Cells and Cancer Research' (February 19-21, 2015) heard about the effects of three plant-based compounds — the root bark of Ailanthus excelsa Roxb or Indian Tree of Heaven, cabbage (Brassica oleracea) and fig (Ficus carica) — on breast cancer cells.
