Home research Research activities

AIMSR would like to be an institute working to speed the transformation of scientific discoveries into medical advances for patients. It is committed to training future leaders who will work at the intersection of science and medicine.

In addition to medical research the college is focused on research that addresses the factors that contribute to disparities in health and healthcare outcomes. We propose to collaborate with colleges in various departments, other institutions and broader health care community to not only promote health and improve outcomes but also in developing public policies to accomplish this.

Research activities

The 11 pre and Para clinical departments with human resource competence (overall 190 staff) have laboratories that are fully operational for research. We have an animal house and all relevant labs, capable of research basic bio medical sciences. Research focuses on adult immunizations, the study of Antimicrobial Resistances and Laboratory Diagnostics to influence national health policy are the important areas of research. Faculties are members of research committees of ICMR, NACO, Indo US granting agency. Our faculty are experienced and interested in research such as genomics, HIV care, TB and other infectious diseases. Faculty will guide students as they write their thesis. Faculty promotions are to be on basis of paper publication and grants availed. We use integrated computer technology from backend to point of care to maintain patient records for communication and for research

The Community outreach Services of the department of community health and College of Nursing provides opportunity to deliver health care at homes and promotion of health through community education that is supported by the various Apollo’s Charitable and educational research foundations (Dr Prathap C, Reddy Educational Foundation, Apollo Foundation for Education etc). These programs plan to support a longitudinal study of a cohort of people with non-communicable diseases, provide safe motherhood programs and reduce infant mortality. In some of the districts in AP this exceeds the national average. This is being proposed in partnership with the State government and national health ministry.
