Dr. M. Jeevan Kumar


Research Assistant Professor

I am Jeevan Kumar M. I did my Doctoral Research in Biomedical Genetics from VIT University, Vellore. I am specialized in Clinical Cytogenetics. I was joined the Department of Medical Genetics at Kanchi Kamakoti CHILDS Trust Hospital, Chennai (2006 – 2015) as a Geneticist after my masters in Biomedical Genetics from VIT University. My work in the department focused on efficient running of the Cytogenetic laboratory. Along with my routine Cytogenetic work in the laboratory. I was involved in the supervision of the operation of accreditation systems relating to our laboratory. As a genetic counselling team member in the Department of Medical Genetics, Kanchi Kamakoti CHILDS Trust Hospital, Chennai (from March 2006 – July 2016) I ascertain information from the patient’s families for pedigree charting and thus help in the compilation of complete medical history and provide complete information about the genetic condition of the patients to their families and counsel the parents about the disease, recurrence risk estimation, management and prevention of the genetic condition.

To gain prenatal Cytogenetic experience I have joined PerkinElmer Health Sciences, Chennai (August 2015 – July 2016) as a Senior Cytogeneticist. I envision research studies as a path towards fulfilling the twin objective of becoming as an independent researcher for a career and ultimately giving back to the society.

As teaching has always been my passion I was involved teaching Basic Medical Genetics classes for both undergraduate students and DNB students (Paediatrics) in the department of Medical Genetics (from August 2007 – July 2016) and as a lecturer in the department of Biotechnology, P.V.K.N Govt. College, Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh (from August 2005 – February 2006).

I am happy to associate and guide motivated students/ researchers who are interested in Clinical Cytogenetics/ Human Disease Genetics.
