Good morning everyone!

What do you know about the one who discovered the ribosomes?

Here are some facts about the great romanian scientist GEORGE EMIL PALADE :
He was a cell biologist and was described as "the most influential cell biologist ever"; in 1974 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, together with Albert Claude and Christian de Duve. The prize was granted for his innovations in electron microscopy and cell fractionation which together laid the foundations of modern molecular cell biology., the most notable discovery being the ribosomes of the endoplasmic reticulum – which he first described in 1955. Palade also received the U.S. National Medal of Science in Biological Sciences for "pioneering discoveries of a host of fundamental, highly organized structures in living cells" in 1986, and was previously elected a Member of the US National Academy of Science in 1961.
Palade was the first Chairman of the Department of Cell Biology at Yale University. Presently, the Chair of Cell Biology at Yale is named the "George Palade Professorship".
At the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, Palade used electron microscopy to study the internal organization of such cell structures as ribosomes, mitochondria, chloroplasts, the Golgi apparatus, and others. His most important discovery was made while using an experimental strategy known as a pulse-chase analysis. In the experiment Palade and his colleagues were able to confirm an existing hypothesis that a secretory pathway exists and that the Rough ER and the Golgi apparatus function together.
He focused on Weibel-Palade bodies (a storage organelle unique to the endothelium, containing von Willebrand factor and various proteins) which he described together with the Swiss anatomist Ewald R. Weibel.

Sveiki, young researchers around the world!

Check out this article:
"The researchers also have reason to believe that these converted cells will not only be neutralized with regards to their former identity as a cancerous cell, but they may also help the body mount an immune response against other cancerous cells lingering in the body. That’s because macrophages collect tags from abnormal cells or foreign material ready to flag down other members of the immune system for attack. Since these cells came from cancerous cells, they will possess signals that identify them as cancer.
The next stage of the project will therefore involve investigating ways to achieve this cell conversion in a clinically viable way, which has already been done for one other type of cancer."

Guten morgen!

Do you know who Alexandru Borza was?

He was a Romanian botanist, a member of the Romanian Academy (post-mortem elected in 1990), the initiator of Retezat National Park (the first nature park of Romania) and together with his group he helped bringing scounting in Romania. 
The Botanical Garden in Cluj-Napoca, founded in 1923, is named after Alexandru Borza due to the fact he was the founder of the Botanical Garden.
Also, Alexandru Borza is credited with first advocating for the legal protection of Nymphaea lotus f. thermalis whilst he was the Government minister in charge of education.

Did you know that...

Prof. Dr. Ana ASLAN, born in Brăila, Romania in 1896, dedicated her long life (92 years old when she passed away) to the study of geriatric treatment. The results she obtained in the field with her product GEROVITAL H3, developed in 1951, made her one of the widest known Romanian researchers. 
Ana Aslan is the Ambassador of Gerontology and a brilliant woman. As a scientist she is an inventor, not an imitator. She studied medicine at the University of Bucharest (1915-1922) and she specialized in cardiology, gerontology and geriatrics. She was full
professor of the medical clinic in Timisoara (1949-1958). In a world of men Prof. Dr. Ana Aslan succeeds to create in 1952, in Bucharest, the Institute of Geriatric, the first one in the world. The
World Organization of Health recognized its organization as a model to be following by all other similar institutes. Starting with 1958 she became the director general of the National Institute of Geriatric and Gerontology. Ana Aslan became aware of the long-term biotrophic action of Procaine and introduced it as a medicine to be taken in small quantity on long terms, for curing and prophylactic benefits. The Gerovital H3 is the first Romanian original biotrophic product and also the first medicine designed to delay human aging processes.

Did you know that..
Emil Racoviță was the first biologist in the world to study arctic life, an explorer of the Antarctica. He was also a zoologist and speleologist. More than that, Racoviță, was the FIRST Romanian to have gone on a scientific research expedition to the Antarctic, more than 100 years ago beeing declared one of the promoter of Natural Sciences in Romania. ‪#‎YRBS‬

Bom dia!

Did you know that our faculty provided great scientists, not only to Romania, but the world itself? We are pretty sure you have heard about Emil Racovita, Alexandru Borza, Emil Pop, Eugen Pora, Vasile Gheorghe Radu.
