Read interesting reports in the Public Engagement Corner and Science Communication workshops sections by Dr Mukund Thattai (Intermediate Fellow, NCBS Bangalore) and Dr Shaida Andrabi (University of Kashmir) respectively. Our Intermediate Fellow and wildlife ecologist, Dr Farah Ishtiaq talks about her passion for science and birds in the Fellow in Spotlight section. Read about the recently published research of our Fellows Drs Mahak Sharma, Soumen Basak, C V Srikanth and Thomas Pucadyil in the Research Highlights section. In the article titled “Fat cells and insulin resistance: unraveling the physiological underpinnings of the epidemic” Early Career Fellow, Dr Joe Varghese, describes the links between adipose tissue inflammation and insulin resistance in the background of his research work. Our Intermediate Fellow, Dr Arun Sripati’s short piece ‘what is good science and when do you know you are doing it’ offers interesting perspectives and implicitly encourages scientists to seek answers for these questions. In the staff corner section, our Grants Adviser, Dr Dipanwita Sengupta, gives us a glimpse of her early life, interests and tells us what has made her India Alliance journey so enjoyable... all this and much more in this issue!
