He received the award of the Fellow of Society of Applied Biotechnology (FSAB) by the Society of Applied Biotechnology in 2013. He was also awarded the Young Engineer’s Award by the Institution of Engineers, India for his outstanding contribution in the field of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering. He is awarded VIFA Young Faculty award in the year 2016 and recently he is awarded Young Neurologist Award by World Stroke Organization.He is also awarded IAAM Scientist Medal by International Association for Advanced Materials, Sweden for his work on Near Infrared Spectroscopy. . He is an associate editor of the journal IEEE Access and also Journal of Medical Systems. He has published over hundred papers in international journals and conferences.


The session will focus on non invasive diagnostic systems for point of care testing. Various kinds of non invasive diagnostic systems using Near Infrared spectroscopy, Ultrasound, Acoustics, Electric field and other modalities will be discussed in this session. The focus of discussion will be on small hand held systems that can, to a large extent replace the costly devices available at pathological centers. This can make the next generation medicine considerably cheap and affordable.

Topics: Non invasive diagnosis; Low cost non invasive medical devices; Point of care testing; Home monitoring through small gadgets; Sensors for point of care testing;
