Research Activities

Biomedical research receives high priority at MGMCRl. Our institution liaisons with governmental and non-governmental organizations for obtaining research grants. All research activities are supported and coordinated by the Institute Research Council, PG Training Committee and monitored by the Institute Human Ethics Committee (IHEC) and Institute Animal Ethics Committee (IAEC)MGMCRl.

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) conducts Short Term Research Studentship Program in order to promote interest and aptitude for research among medical undergraduates. According to the program’s mission statement, “the main objective of this program is to provide an opportunity to undergraduate medical students to familiarize themselves with research methodology and techniques by being associated for a short duration with their senior’s ongoing research program or by undertaking independent projects.” We ensure that the students at MGMCRI get opportunities to participate in these ICMR projects.

MGMCRI is unique among the medical colleges of Pondicherry in bagging the maximum number of the prestigious ICMR-STS Projects. Several student research projects have been presented at apex fora and many of them have been published in peer-reviewed and indexed journals.
