I am working as associate professor in orthopedics. Currently, I am conducting various drug trials for rheumatoid arthritis.
My keen interest is in musculo-skeleton tuberculosis especially in spinal tuberculosis. I would be interested in studying effect of drug resistant tuberculosis in orthopedics and the socio-economic impact of MDR –TB in urban Indian population.
I would also like to know more about preventive chemotherapy and vaccination for tuberculosis. I would like to contribute towards development of genome based early detection of MDR-TB facilities in BJ medical college.
