Dr. Achal Kumar Srivastava is Professor of Clinical Neurophysiology in the Department of Neurology at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India. He heads the Clinical Neurophysiology facility and Ataxia clinic at the center and is a member of the Comprehensive Epilepsy care team here. He has special interest in ataxias, epilepsy and genetics of movement disorders. He is a recipient of more than 25 paper presentation awards and has more than 100 publications to his credit.
Dr. Srivastava graduated from MLN Medical College, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh in 1991 and completed his postgraduate degree (MD) in Medicine (1994) from the same college. Subsequently he obtained post-doctoral specialist certification in DM (Neurology) in 1998 from the Department of Neurology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. He worked as Senior Scientist grade scientist fellow for over a year at CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (formerly known as Center for Biochemical technology) and then joined as Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology in March 2001. He has keen interest in teaching and has provided guidance and training to more than 70 DM and PhD students in their research work.
Dr. Srivastava has received academic awards at National and International scientific forums, mainly for his work in the field of ataxias and genetics of neurological disorders. Many of his students (both DM and PhD) have also won academic awards and honours, under his guidance. He was invited by Molecular Biology Division at John Hopkins USA for presentation of his work on spinocerebellar ataxia type 12. He has received outstanding paper presentation award from AINA at American Academy of Neurology conference at San Francisco in 2004 and the best paper award at Neurological Society of India conference at Hyderabad in 1998. He has received many travel fellowships to attend international conferences. He has received Young investigator award for CAG triplet repeat disorder conferences at USA and Italy. He has collaborative projects with many universities and research institutes. He is on the editorial board of Journal of Clinical Neuroscience and many other journals of repute.
