I have been issued an AACC membership thanks to the generous Gallwas grant. I have been enjoying the benefits of this membership for the last one year. I was issued this membership when I was working as an assistant professor as well as a clinical biochemist in a medical institute in India. The medical updates that I received regularly helped me in acquiring the latest developments in medical field and also helped in guiding the postgraduate students in their dissertation works. This membership has also helped me in my career upliftment by being offered a placement in Asian institute of Medicine,Science and Technology, Malaysia as a faculty in the department of Biochemistry. I am right now involved in research work on ‘markers in Obesity’. I wish to continue my membership and hope to attend the workshops and conferences conducted by AACC in near future.
