Neuronal Calcium Signalling in Health and Disease: lessons from model organisms

The Department of Biological Sciences at SRM University-AP welcomes Dr Gaiti Hasan, SERB-Distinguished fellow, for the next chapter of our Biology Seminar Series on November 20, 2021, Saturday at 11.00 am for a riveting talk about the vitality of Calcium as an intracellular messenger regulating several parallel processes, particularly aimed towards healthcare.

About the Speaker:

Dr Gaiti Hasan is an eminent researcher with a keen interest in the fields of Neuroscience, neurodegeneration, InsP3 and calcium signalling in neuronal function, and molecular genetics. She joined National Centre of Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bangalore in 1992 and held various positions there, and, most recently, since 2019 she has carried on as a SERB-Distinguished Fellow. Dr Hasan is also a elected Fellow of the Indian National Science Academy (INSA), Indian Academy of Science, and World Academy of Sciences, and was elected as INSA’s Vice-President in 2020.

Dr Hasan obtained her doctorate (PhD) from the University of Cambridge, UK. She had completed her M. Phil in Life Sciences and Master of Science in Life Sciences at Jawaharlal Nehru University, and her Bachelor of Science in Zoology at Miranda House, University of Delhi.

She is a recipient of “Chaire Gutenberg” by Strasbourg Communities, Strasbourg, France in 2020 and Darshan Ranganathan INSA Award Lecture in 2019 for her prolific contributions to the development of the scientific field.

Dr Hasan has several Editorial Board Memberships notably in PLOS Genetics (Associate Editor), Current Science (Section Editor), Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience (Associate Editor), and Journal of Neurogenetics.

Join us on November 20, 2021, Saturday at 11.00 am to hear one of the most gifted scientists of our country, Dr Gaiti Hasan, share her research insights.
