Yoithapprabhunath Thukanayakanpalayam Ragunathan
I was born in a small village in India and raised by the parents who showed enormous love and affection towards me and taught me great moral values. I was not a topper or highly talented during my learning time, but by the grace of God , my lateral thinking brought me into limelight and made me unique in my school, college, University and work place. I developed a interest in Odontogenesis and Odontogenic tumors & cyst during my post graduation. With the support of my guide Prof. Dr. Madhavan Nirmal, I did my Dessetation in IMMUNOHISTOCHEMICAL DETECTION OF P75 NEUROTROPHIN RECEPTOR IN FOLICULAR AND PLEXIFORM AMELOBLASTOMA. This work has drawn the attention of many researchers and faculties during the INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON HEAD & NECK TUMORS, held at Manipal University, India, for which it received Best presentation award under original research work category. This encouraged me to publish this article in an renowned forum JOURNAL OF CLINICAL AND DIAGNOSTIC RESEARCH ( J Clin Diagn Res. 2016 Aug;10(8):ZC63-6. doi: 10.7860/JCDR/2016/17782.8280.
