I have been getting a deluge of requests to post some examples of the type of projects that have been selected. While it is a bit of a chore to track down the folks who got through and ask them for their project abstracts (most people are not so open minded about handing out unpublished research abstracts), I will try to do the best I can to get as many abstracts in as possible.
In this series, here is the first one by Dr. Suman Saurabh Chaudhary, who did this study in his 2nd Prof MBBS days in JIPMER and is pursuing a residency in Community Medicine at the same college now. He had been of immense help to me on the day of the KVPY interview. Despite the fact that we were competing for the same award, he was very generous with his advice and insights into how the KVPY system worked. This was invaluable for me because he came from an institute that had a tradition of KVPY awardees every year, unlike me, who was the first person to be selected from our neck in the woods! Anyways, enough bumbling, here is the abstract of the study. He published it in a Journal called “Biomedicine” as the first author eventually.
I hope this helps you people out there!
