7-4.5: VENOMOUS SNAKES OF NEPAL

Research interests/current works

I am a medical student with diverse interests in clinical and laboratory medicine. My MD dissertation research focuses on the development and validation of new diagnostic tools for a neglected tropical disease, snake bite envenoming. In my research project I use forensic approaches of trace DNA analysis to determine the species of snake that bit a patient. Such information is important for clinical treatment decisions and prognosis, and it can help in epidemiological studies and public health planning. I also develop laboratory protocols that will make such molecular diagnostic procedures faster, technologically less demanding, and cheaper.
