Author Profile

Early Academic Pursuits:

Dr. Kamla Kant Shukla began his academic journey with a strong foundation in Biochemistry, earning a Ph.D. in Medical Biochemistry from King George’s Medical University, Lucknow, in 2010. His earlier academic achievements include an M.Sc. in Biochemistry from A.P.S. University, Rewa, in 2001.

Professional Endeavors:

His professional journey in academia includes various roles at AIIMS Jodhpur, where he currently serves as an Additional Professor of Biochemistry since July 2023. Prior to this, he held positions as an Associate Professor (July 2020 - June 2023) and Assistant Professor (June 2017 - June 2020) in the Department of Trauma & Emergency. Before joining AIIMS Jodhpur, Dr. Shukla gained valuable experience as a Senior/Junior Resident in the Department of Biochemistry at AIIMS Jodhpur from January 2013 to May 2017. He also pursued a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Chungang University, South Korea, from 2011 to 2012.

Contributions and Research Focus:
