Translational research in the management of Vitiligo is one of the most cited work of Dr. Kumar. He was the key author in the first laboratory report of vitiligo management by noncultured extracted hair follicle Outer Root Sheath (ORS) cell suspension. This procedure is serving as a novel, minimally invasive technique with good yield of melanocytes, melanocyte stem cells and other stem cell population of the epidermis. This method results in excellent pigmentation with no visible residual scarring which is now widely investigated field of basic and experimental clinical research.
