This is a good opportunity for eligible candidates for pursuing research in this prestigious research institute in our country. The areas in which the research is being conducted in this institute are very modern as well as of contemporary interest and there is definitely a good scope after completing them for those who are desirous of carving out a career in these specific researches. I will like to give a brief sketch of the areas where these research projects will be available.
The main areas where the research is conducted in this institute are Medicinal Chemistry, Rare diseases, Metabolic syndrome, Zebrafish, Cancer, and Nanotechnology. All these are niche areas and have immense research potential.
In Medicinal Chemistry new chemical compositions and formulations are developed to be used as a drug for a particular ailment in humans as well as animals and to arrive at pharmacological solutions. Under the rare disease group, fundamental research is required to model disease and then find a viable solution. This requires bigger coordination between the agencies engaged in treating and mitigating rare diseases. Another research area is under the heading of Metabolic Syndrome where studies and research are carried out for finding the reasons for the metabolic disorders in the body (like diabetes, extreme obesity, hypertension etc) and finding medical solutions. Another interesting area is Zebrafish where functions like gene editing and protein function investigation are studied and zebrafish models of pharmacology and toxicology are developed.
Then there are research opportunities in the area of Nanotechnology which is an emerging area in medical science and uses the latest technology for innovative applications. Further, cancer cure is still a big challenge for medical science and a lot of research is going in this area in various laboratories worldwide. Developing newer treatment and studying the cancer-related therapies already available, for betterment and improvement are the main purpose of research in this area.
