He has authored numerous publications, book chapters and abstracts, including research on the effects of varying preparations of semen for ART procedures and on the benefit of electing cryopreservation of surplus embryos in ART.

Dr. Adaniya is an active member of many professional societies, including the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the American Society of Andrology, the American Association of Bioanalysts, the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology. In addition, Dr. Adaniya is board certified as a High-Complexity Clinical Laboratory Director (HCLD) and an Embryology Laboratory Director (ELD) by the American Board of Bioanalysis.
