Newborn Screening

Every child deserves the best care to lead a quality life. To enable this for their child, parents-to-be need to understand newborn screening. It is a set of tests done on day two or three of life for the child. It is the birthright of every newborn to be screened for a preset list of disorders. These disorders if detected early can be treated or managed very effectively that allows the child to grow up normally. Otherwise, these children grow up to have severely damaged physical and mental development.


I am the Founder and Managing Editor of SciRio, a digital ecosystem for science communicators who want to communicate science to people who are non-experts in any fields of science. After stints as a Research Associate at the Indian Institute of Science and Centre for Human Genetics working on Cancer Research and Developmental Biology, I shifted gears to communicating science and become an entrepreneur.

I established SciRio to support science communicators in networking better, finding appropriate training and resources, and ultimately provide unexplored opportunities to science communicators.
