Prof. Ugargol, Chairperson of the Post Graduate Programme in Enterprise Management, has received an award for his research work on 'Ageing and Geriatric Care in India.'

Professor Surindar Mohan Marwah, Varanasi, established the ICMR-Professor Surindar Mohan Marwah Award in 1993. This award is given to a scientist for their work in the field of Geriatrics.

Award includes certificate along with e-citation

The award includes a certificate along with e-citation, from the Indian Council of Medical Certificate (ICMR). About Dr. Ugargol’s research, ICMR says: “His research on ageing and geriatric care potentiates academic understanding of the demographic transition: it disentangles geriatric care needs, discovers care constraints, tests the resilience of familial inter-generational contracts, situates the ‘care gap’ within notions of aging in place and highlights policy implications of population ageing in India.”

Dr. Ugargol

Dr. Ugargol earned his doctorate in demography from the University of Groningen (RUG) in the Netherlands. Dr. Ugargol is a public health academic, social epidemiologist, and applied demographer with extensive clinical experience and research interests in health policy, health systems, epidemiology, health and hospital services, ageing, and healthcare management. 

By combining quantitative and interpretive approaches, he traverses the interdisciplinary crossroads of demography, public health, gerontology, and healthcare management. His research interests include workplace ageism, age-friendly initiatives, informal work, precarious work, health informatics, and tobacco control.

Dr. Ugargol previously served as a member of the Working Group that conceptualised India's National Health Portal (NHP) in 2011, under the direction of the National Knowledge Commission. The Karnataka Knowledge Commission, Government of Karnataka, bestowed upon him the 'Jnana Fellowship' in 2011. In 2012, he received the 'Ubbo Emmius' Fellowship for his PhD at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, and was supported by the Indian-European Research Networking Grant: Ageing and Well-being in a Globalizing World funded by NWO-ESRC-ICSSR.
