INTRODUCTION: Physiology is one of the foundation sciences for the medical curriculum. It forms the basis of all life sciences. Physiology practical classes in India are divided into three sections: exercises in haematology, exercises on humans and experiments on amphibians. Faculty and students of medical schools in India are of the opinion that animal experiments should be discontinued, that the curriculum in experimental physiology and pharmacology needs to be updated, that the same understanding of topics could be obtained by using alternative methods and that there is an urgent need to introduce alternatives of animal experiments...

Highly-connected and minimal edge-transitive nets (with one or two kinds of edge) can be regarded as ideal blueprints for the rational design and construction of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Here we report and affirm the prominence of highly-connected nets as suitable targets in reticular chemistry for the design and synthesis of MOFs. Of special interest are augmented highly-connected binodal edge-transitive nets embedding a unique and precise positioning and connectivity of the net vertex figures, regarded as net-coded building units (net-cBUs)...

In 1936, Ralph Milton Waters accepted a proposal to train an Indian physician who could return home and become the first native anesthesiologist in the subcontinent. Waters founded the United States' first anesthesiology residency in 1927 and in 1937 welcomed Barindra Sircar, MBBS, to the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Sircar trained with Waters for two years and did further training with Robert Macintosh and Ivan Magill. He became one of the first specialty-trained anesthesiologists in India and founded the Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists...
