Shoolini Scientist Redefines Research Landscape 

Behind every research scholar and their groundbreaking achievements is an institution that motivates them to put in that relentless effort. Any research work is not just a matter of hours or days… it is years of hard work, failure, trying again and then succeeding. This journey requires a strong infrastructure built to support all those brave and innovative minds wanting to bring a change. One such research university is Shoolini University.  

From vibrant campus life to undergraduate research opportunities, this university has truly understood what research is all about and why it shouldn’t exist only within hierarchical boundaries.  

Shoolini’s unique approach to research has broadened the opportunities for students. From inventing biodiesel to finding a significant method to slow down the development of Alzheimer’s, Shoolini scholars are at the forefront of establishing a global footprint.  

As we progress, let’s explore the research of a Shoolini University faculty member in the field of Alzheimer’s, which gained international recognition. We’ll also examine how Shoolini, the best private research university in India (QS Asia Rankings 2023), supported him on this journey. 

Shoolini Researcher and Associate Prof Lalit Sharma at AAIC 2023 

Assoc Prof Lalit Sharma from the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences presented his innovative idea at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) 2023 in Amsterdam. Renowned universities around the globe participated in this conference. 

But Assoc Prof Lalit Sharma’s unique approach to the disease and its cure caught the attention of his fellow members. He talked about amyloid beta, the primary component of the abnormal protein build-up in the brain cells, which later leads to Alzheimer’s. 

His research showed how evaluating compounds derived from Himalayan plants could slow down the growth of amyloid beta. As we all know, Alzheimer’s is an incurable disease, but its effects can be mitigated. Associate Professor Sharma’s research can be considered a breakthrough in this field. 

Inspiration behind the success 

As we discuss the countless efforts behind every research paper, it’s important to recognise how Shoolini University’s inspired Assoc Prof Lalit to think beyond the “possible”. 

When asked about the driving force behind his achievement, the scientist credited Shoolini University, where he is currently employed. He emphasised how the university’s environment fosters research and encourages anyone with a single idea to pursue it further. 

Furthermore, he acknowledged the comprehensive support from Shoolini as a research university. In addition to the unwavering backing, he noted that this research work contributed not only to the university’s growth but also aided him in finding value in Alzheimer’s research.
