National Science Day: Commemorating the legend - CV Raman
"I would like to tell the young men and women before me not to lose
hope and courage. Success can only come to you by courageous devotion
to the task lying in front of you and there is nothing worth in this
world that can come without the sweat of our brow. I can assert
without fear of contradiction that the quality of the Indian mind is
equal to the quality of any Teutonic, Nordic or Anglo-Saxon mind.
What we lack is perhaps courage, what we lack is perhaps driving force
which takes one anywhere. We have, I think, developed an inferiority
complex. I think what is needed in India today is the destruction of
that defeatist spirit. We need a spirit of victory, a spirit that will
carry us to our rightful place under the sun, a spirit which will
recognize that we, as inheritors of a proud civilization, are entitled
to a rightful place on this planet. If that indomitable spirit were to
arise, nothing can hold us from achieving our rightful destiny." -
Sir CV Raman

Gut Pathogens making a positive impact in 2012
The year has started positively for Gut Pathogens with the news that the journal will receive its first Impact Factor in June 2012.Gut Pathogens is aiming to be ranked in the first quartile of Gastroenterology and Hepatology journals.
Gut Pathogens, an internationally recognized journal, boasts an Editorial Board consisting of leading researchers from around the world. A key factor in the journal's success has been its commitment to publishing articles that are topical and relevant to researchers in this field. In particular, Gut Pathogens has consistently published highly popular articles on probiotics, and is becoming a key journal for researchers in the field to submit their research. The journal will continue to publish high quality articles on probiotics in the future. (Image credit: Probiotic Lactobacillus salivarius. Sleator, Gut Pathogens 2010 2:5)
There has been an increasing interest in pathogens such as Clostridium difficile, E. coli and Salmonella because of the significant emerging health problems they are causing in western countries. Gut Pathogens would like to invite scientists to submit their research on these and similar themes to the journal for publication in 2012.
