Today, Department of Biochemistry @ Kashmir University organized a mind stimulating talk " Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Cellular Cargo" by Dr. Tanveer Ahmad, post doctoral scientist from NIH, Bethesda. Broadly, he spoke on how mitochondria drift from a healthy cell to a neighboring sick cell (which has lost this organelle due to oxidative stress etc.) through unique channels called nanotubules. In sum, the talk was inspiring and stimulating for the students and research scholars of the department.
To keep this trend continuing, I request all those scientists (biochemists/molecular biologists/cell biologists) who are visiting Kashmir at different times of the year to present their recent and exciting research work to the hungry minds at the department.
