Contribution in medical science[edit]

  • Alternatives to animal testing: He believes in the philosophy of 'Three Rs" of Russell and Burch".[7] He gave series of lectures during 2004 at "Alternatives, Animal Welfare and the Curriculum – A training Seminar and Workshop" in different cities of India.[8] He addressed in the meetings of International Network for Humane Education (InterNICHE) and International Centre for Alternatives in Research and Education (I-CARE). On the recommendation of Medical Council of India (MCI), and after getting survey related to the attitude of undergraduate medical students towards Alternatives to animal testing and Animal experiments, he initiated a separate lab on "Alternatives to Animal Experimentation" in the Department of Pharmacology at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College. This is a first attempt in any medical college of India to have an exclusive lab where experimental work on animals is demonstrated by Computer aided education. In addition, he edited "A guide to alternatives to animal experiment in pharmacology", which is included in the curriculum of second professional MBBS course.[9] He even translated few papers into Urdu in the field of Alternatives to animal testing.[10][11]
