Research Activites 2018
There are 11 Pre-clinical and Para-clinical departments with an overall human resource strength of about 190 staff, with fully functional laboratories for research. An animal house and all relevant labs, capable of basic biomedical sciences and research are available for the exclusive use and benefits of our students and staff. Our current researches focus on adult immunizations, the study of Antimicrobial Resistances, and Laboratory Diagnostics to influence national health policy, among others.
Our faculty are members of renowned research committees such as ICMR, NACO, and Indo- US Granting Agency. With experience and involved interest in fields of research such as genomics, HIV care, TB, and other infectious diseases, our faculty are deeply committed to the research sphere of Apollo Medical College. Faculty further guide students in writing their thesis reports. Faculty promotions are taken based on paper publications and grants availed. We use integrated computer technology from the backend to the point of care to maintain patient records for communication and research.
The Community Outreach Services of the Department of Community Health and College of Nursing provide an opportunity to deliver health care at homes and promotion of health through community education. It is supported by the various Apollo’s Charitable and Educational Research Foundations – Dr. Prathap C. Reddy Educational Foundation, Apollo Foundation for Education, etc.
