         Professor Bhaskar C. Harinath presently Director, JBTDRC and Honorary Professor in Biochemistry, after completing Ph.D. and Post­ doctoral study in United States under Fulbright programme, joined the first rural Medical Institute, Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences at Sevagram in 1970 which was just started as Gandhi Centenary Project in 1969, to establish the Department of Biochemistry.  During the last forty two years, in addition to teaching and hospital biochemistry work, the department was developed into an advanced centre for Tropical Disease Research in particular on filaria and tuberculosis with all the sophisticated equipments with support from Unichem labs., USEFI, ICMR, CSIR, DST, DBT and WHO/TDR resulting in establishment of Jamnalal Bajaj Tropical  Disease Research Centre on campus.  The centre has been recognized by DBT for establishment of ‘Repository for filarial parasite and reagents’. Bioinformatics Centre one of the 146 centres in India was established and funded by DBT since 1999. Presently the research work at the Centre and Biochemistry is supported by grants from DBT, ICMR, DST and Kasturba Health Society.

The work on filaria and tuberculosis diagnostics has been well recognized in India and abroad.  The most significant contribution has been in-house development of immunoscreening tests for filariasis and tuberculosis based on ELISA using purified W. bancrafti mf ES antigen and Tb ES antigens respectively. Mycobacterial ES-31 serine protease (SEVA TB ES-31 antigen) of diagnostic and drug target interest and biomarker was isolated and reported for the first time and has been patented.  He has widely travelled in the world participating in International Seminars and Workshops at USA, Kenya, Australia, USSR, Malaysia, France, Singapore, Thailand, Brazil and China.  He has guided 17 Ph.D and 8 M.D students with more than 200 research publications.  The research work was recognized by Amrut Modi award -1986 (Unichem Labs), PA Kurup Endowment award – 1991 (SBC), Awadesh Saran Oration – 1992 (ACBI), Dr. B. C. Roy National award – 1992 (MCI) and Dhanvantari award – 2004 (Education Society, Wardha). AJ Thakur Award for Distinguished Clinical Biochemist of India by ACBI. Dr. Harinath was President of Indian Immunology Society (1990-92) and President of Association of Clinical Biochemists of India (1994-95).  Dr. Harinath joined as Associate Professor in 1970, became Professor in 1976 and was Director - Professor during 1992-2002, Department of Biochemistry and was also Dean, MGIMS from March 93 to September 94, Silver Jubilee year of the Institute.  He is presently Director, Jamnalal Bajaj Tropical Disease Research Centre established on the campus and Co-ordinator for Bioinformatics Centre (Supported by DBT) and Arogyadham (supported by KHS and CCRYN) with Yoga & Nature Cure Centre and Herbal Garden.  In addition to research on filaria and tuberculosis, Dr. Harinath is actively involved as Editor of Sevamed, Quarterly Update on Infectious Disease Research and Traditional Medicine and developing Medical Informatics and Arogyadham on medical campus for research in Holistic Healthcare.
