PERSONAL STATEMENT

I have been systematically exploring appropriate strategies for screening of common cancers in India. In 2013, as Director of the National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research. I co-organized with the US-National Cancer Institute a national workshop on cancer screening strategies. I was the senior author on the publication that resulted from the symposium on research, policy, and advocacy priorities for cancer prevention in India (Lancet Oncology).These recommendations have been taken up by the Government in formulating an operational and technical manual for cancer screening. My contributions have amalgamated a very strong basic, clinical and applied research approach involving medical and community practice to early detection, primary and secondary prevention of cancer. I have worked in the areas of oral malignancies over the last two decades and reported on its epidemiology, early diagnosis and management, as well as, the novel aspects of molecular biology of the disease. My research has emphasized the need for routine screening and early diagnosis of all at-risk individuals. My contribution to cancer diagnosis utilizing affordable technology has been widely recognized and was recently covered in BMJ Innovations. In an effort to improve public awareness about cancer and cancer prevention and to mitigate cancer stigma, myths and fears, NICPR recently launched a comprehensive India-centric web portal called “India Against Cancer” (http://cancerindia.org.in/).  The WHO-FCTC Global information for smokeless tobacco has started functioning at the centre.

I received my postdoctoral trainings in cytopathology, tumor immunology, and clinical hematology/oncology from leading institutions such as Johns Hopkins University, University of Pennsylvania, Medical College of Wisconsin, Earle A. Chiles Research Institute, and University of Otago, Christchurch, New Zealand while on a Rotary International GSE award to New Zealand. I serve on the editorial board of more than 10 international peer-reviewed medical journals and have published in top ranking journals such as Lancet Oncology. Recently, was fortunate to be awarded the prestigious Dr. P.N. Wahi award for Clinical Cytology and Preventive Oncology by Indian Council of Medical Research, Dr. Lachman Award for Cancer Awareness and Research and the Ernest Fernandes Award from the Indian Academy of Cytology. Moreover, I have received fellowships from scientific bodies like the American Cancer Society, Union International Contre le Cancer, World Health Organization, among others. Iwas elected as a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists and have served as an expert at the World Health Organization.
