 During my incharge ship in blood bank, it reached to its peak. I introduce with the grace of Almighty, automation in blood bank at every level. At present blood bank is doing automated serology testing and grouping. Testing for infectios diseases (HIV, HBS, & HCV) was also done by automatied machines and prestigious NAT testing was  introduced in 2018. This blood bank has become the nodal center for NAT testing and received samples from Kanpur and Agra. Soon other centers will also be included. during my tenure as incharge  central lab, automation was introduced for biochemistry and Hematology. 

I was member of Medical Education Unit in Faculty of Medicine since 2009 - 2014 and served Hospital in the capicity of DMS from 2011 - 2013. I was also warden of Hadi Hasan Hall from 1995 to 1998.  Later I also served as Provost Hadi Hasan Hall from June 2017 till Dec 2019 and also member of executive committe (EC) in the capacity of senior most provost.

Same year I was invited to deliver a talk in Atlanta USA in International Hematology Conference. Earlier I also visited Shanghai China in 2011 to delive an invited tlak on cardiac Markers. 

Presently I am chairperson of Dept of Pathology. Since I took charge of chairpersonship in Pathology Department, automated coagulation analyser and automated IHC stainer  was procure.  Soon we plan to open section of molecular genetics for better diagnosis of cancers for effective treatment.  

Our aims for future development is to upgrade the Hematology and hematopathology section so that pateints of hematological malignancies would not suffer and establishment of Dept of transfusion medicine.
