Biography :

I am Dr. Alok Raghav Ph.D Endocrinology, worked on “Studies on glycated albumin and its clinical relevance in diabetes and its associated complications” under Prof. Jamal Ahmad. I worked hardly to set the goal of standard in the endocrinology field. During PhD duration, I deeply thought of making some diagnostic device for the detection of glycated albumin, as my area of specialization is also glycated albumin. I submitted the entry for the award in Gandhian Young Innovation Technological Award and also in Knimbus Young Innovator award. I was among the top 20 entries throughout the country for my idea and got the appreciation certificate also. The idea for creating the hypothesis lies with the fact that glycated albumin is a short term glycemic marker other than HbA1c. The sensor named as glycabumin sensor and it was noninvasive device that I proposed. Apart from this gadget idea, I have been felicitated with the young scientist award at Integral University, Lucknow during an International Conference for the best paper presentation in oral category. I have also received prestigious Elsevier travel award for attending the international conference in Miami, USA. Aligarh Muslim University, also given me travel award for attending the International conference at Budapest, Hungary. The prestigious and rarest award from Research Society for Study of Diabetes in India also given me a cash prize travel award for presenting research paper at RSSDI Hyderabad. I have published 34 research papers in peer reviewed journals.
