I have established and developed the Department of Medical Genetics at JSS Medical College which has facilities for newborn screening for treatable metabolic disorders, maternal serum screening for the detection of aneuploidy & chromosomal disorders, and clinical cytogenetics having facilities for Karyotyping & Fluorescent in-situ hybridization. I have initiated BSc Medical Genetics and MSc Medical Genetics and Genomics program for which the syllabus has been designed according to Choose Based Credit System (CBCS). I head the Special Interest Group on Human Genomics and Rare Disorders (SIG-HGRD) comprising like-minded people with a passion for the field of genomics. I have articles published in indexed high-impact journals with an average impact factor of 19.202 and an H-index of 19. I am guiding 8 Ph.D. scholars on various research topics. I have also taken a keen interest in employing innovative methods in teaching, learning, and evaluation and have initiated problem-based learning, objective structured practical examination, experiential learning, and model-making exercises for medical students.
