Department of Research

Dr. R. C. Agrawal, Professor (Associate) & Head , M.Sc. and Ph.D in Applied Biology (Bombay)

Mr. Durgesh Mishra, M.Sc. Microbiology

Without a proper research nucleus, no hospital can achieve higher skill in this age of ever growing frontiers of knowledge. The institute has a well-equipped Research Department, which is the first of its kind in Vindhya region of Madhya Pradesh. Among the prominent organizations that have provided support to various research activities of the hospital include Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and Department of Science and Technology (DST) .The department's two major research projects are in quite advanced stage. They relate to the formulation of cheaper and very effective alternative medicines based on Aloe vera and Tribulus terestris ( Gokharu ). This will help to reduce the side effects of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy.

Apart from various research projects of vital importance on hand, the research department also offers advanced research training to doctoral and post graduate students particularly in Biotechnology ,Genetics Medical Microbiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, It is recognized by A.P.S. University, Rewa

The Animal Ethical Committee of this institute is recognized by Animal welfare board, Ministry of Environment and forest, New Delhi
