Dr. Suruchi Garg

Dr. Suruchi Garg, Director and Chief Consultant Dermatologist at Aura Skin Institute, Chandigarh, INDIA is one of the recipients of the Distinguished Scholar Award in 2020. With this award, the independent ad hoc Scientific Award Committee and the Editorial Board of the European Journal of Scientific Research pays tribute to Dr. Suruchi Garg for her contribution in the field of Regenerative Medicine through her article titled “FUE Hair Transplant in combination with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy for treatment of Scarring Alopecia”.

Professor Adrian Marcus Steinberg, the Chair of the Independent ad hoc Scientific Award Committee, said:

“Dr. Suruchi Garg has received the prestigious Distinguished Scholar Award 2020, in lieu of her significant contribution to the existing knowledge in her selected area of research in regenerative medicine. She delivered outstanding results of hair regrowth in patients with a difficult-to-treat disorder ‘scarring alopecia’ using an innovative technique that combined FUE Hair Transplant and PRP therapy”.

The Distinguished Scholar Award is a prestigious academic recognition that have been presented to a very limited number of scientists from around the world since 2004 regardless of which scientific journal they have chosen as an outlet for their research. Selection of candidates are based on their outstanding scholarly contribution to the scientific knowledge in their fields of scientific research with respect to a set of criteria, including the overall importance of the research question or problem and level of innovation in the topic, the effectiveness and novelty of the methodology and data employed, academic significance and usefulness of conclusions resulting from the research, adequacy of the critical review of relevant literature and the broad application of the findings.

The study published by Dr. Suruchi Garg was executed on patients with difficult to treat scarring alopecia (permanent hair loss in the scarred area) like the ones seen in post-burn, post-trauma, post cleft lip surgery and frontal fibrosing alopecia (a treatment resistant disorder) and delivered excellent clinical outcome. The surgical technique used in this study was based upon her previous experience from a randomized controlled research work on role of platelet rich plasma therapy in FUE hair transplant in androgenic alopecia, and her proposed model of ‘Golden anchorage and molecular locking of ectodermal and mesenchymal elements for hair follicle integrity and survival’.

Based on the current work she documented how platelet rich plasma derived growth factors act on survival and rejuvenation of all the parts of transplanted hair follicle, besides improving the texture and vasculature of scarred skin; and in turn making it more receptive for transplanted hair follicles in scarring alopecia. Her path breaking research in treating scarring alopecia gives hope to the patients who suffer a huge psychological distress due to limited treatment options and also opens avenues for future researchers to improvise the technique further.
