Aerial Microwave Radar Gauge Installed At Channel Mouth At Machilipatnam

To predict cyclones and Tsunamis Aerial Microwave Radar Gauge was installed at channel mouth at Machilipatnam.Though a collaborative project jointly implemented by DMS-SVH college of engineering, is association with Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and National Institute of Ocean Graphy(NIO),Goa,Downward looking Aerial Microwave Radar Gauge was installed to measure accurate sea level.The sea level gets influenced by atmospheric pressure,wind etc. Following the depression there us a rise in the sea level.Under the Indo-French collaborative project of the ISRO, the NIO ,Goa has established a network of sea level gauge across the Indian coast and islands.

Scientists Create Bone From Fat Cell

For the first time , scientists have developed new bone from fresh an purified fat stem cell. The new procedure carried out on an animal model, is also hoped to be applied to produce  other tissues, including heart,skin and cartilage, a break through which they may say one day eliminate the need for painful bone grafts that use material taken from the patient.

Scientists Grow New Vein from Girl’s Stem Cell

For the first rime, Scientist led by an Indian – origin researcher have successfully replaced a major blood vessel in a 10 year old girl with a vein grown in a lab using her own stem cells. The pioneering transplant, published in The lancet, marks a further advance in growing body parts in laboratory and offers hopes for patients who lack suitable veins for dialysis or bypass surgery.In the landmark research, a team from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden took a vein from a dead man, stripped of its own cells and then bathed in stem cells from girl, who was suffering from portal vein obstruction.There was a ‘ striking’ improvement in her transplantation. This is the future for tissue engineering where we can make tailor-made organs in the lab.
