    I joined India's pioneering research center i.e. Indian Council of Medical Research in 1984 ans was the first scientist of its newly established institute at Jodhpur, Rajasthan i.e. Desert Medicine Research Centre. Since 5th September 1984 till 30th October, 2016 I traveled from level of Scientist-B to Scientist-G & Head, Division of Virology & Molecular Biology. I have been front runner in designing scientific, administrative and infrastructural road map and growth of DMRC, Jodhpur. It was during this time that I was awarded a W.H.O. project on Dengue and had also traveled to Nairobi, Kenya for the “31st meeting of Research Strengthening Group (RSG), TDR, World Health Organization in March 2006.

    At present, I am academically and administratively performing the duties of Professor and Deputy Director at Amity Institute of Virology & Immunology, Amity University, Noida from November 2016 till date.

    Following is the brief account of my salient achievements so far:
    --Developed blue print of scientific plan of DMRC and planned and executed baseline Health Survey to identify major health problems of desert Rajasthan.
    --Contributed in ‘Eradication of Guinea-worm disease’ from Rajasthan and from India, through research and then participated as Member, National Commission for Guinea-worm Eradication-Certification.
    --Reported first report of India on Transovarial transmission of dengue virus and first report of world on persistence of transovarial transmission across 7 generations of mosquitoes. The research published explained maintenance mechanism of dengue virus during inter epidemic periods. Paper was awarded as one of the best cited papers in 100 years of ICMR research.
    --Reported that individual mosquitoes contain multiple dengue viruses and sensitized the thinking that primary infection caused by mosquitoes containing multiple types could lead to DHF. The observations were published in the International Journal (Acta Tropica) and on further confirmation could change the concept of etiological cause of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF).
    --Studied partial sequences of H1N1 virus affecting Rajasthan and reported its variations/mutations.
    --Published 28 gene sequences of Dengue-1,2,3 & 4 virus types and 78 gene sequences of Pandemic H1N1 Influenza viruses in NCBI, USA.
    --Reported first complete genome sequence of Dengue-3 virus from Rajasthan and 389 nucleotide sequence variations and 189 amino acid variations associated with genome were reported.
    --Published a new Intervention method of eliminating vertically infected foci of Aedes mosquitoes to control dengue transmission. Translational research on 33 districts of Rajasthan was undertaken and results were published in the international journal Acta Tropica.
    --Established facility for molecular diagnosis of Dengue in Rajasthan.
    --Provided referral diagnostic support to the State Health Department, Rajasthan for diagnosis of H1N1 infected swab samples during the 2009 pandemic.
    --Established the centre as the second referral centre for H1N1 diagnostics in the state of Rajasthan.
    --Study of incidence of viral genes vis-à-vis ecotypes and clinical conditions of patients.
    --Reported no role of Indira Gandhi canal for malaria aggravation in Desert, In-migration of malaria cases as Primary Risk factor and developed computer programme for predicting malaria transmission
    --Reported zoonotic reservoir bog and associated density of sandfly species Phlebotomus papatasi with occurrence of more Cutaneous leishmaniasis cases in endemic localities.
