Chennai: The Haven of Medical Research

Abstract:
Stem cell research, tissue engineering, molecular biology, nanotechnology, clinical and epidemiological studies, gene therapy, research in diabetes, you name it and Chennai has it all. In diabetes alone, experts assert there is no competitor. Dr V Mohan, Chairman, Dr Mohan's Diabetes Specialities Centre and President and Director of Madras Diabetes Research Foundation, Chennai, says, "Chennai is definitely on the world map of medical research. In diabetes alone, if you browse through all the Indian publications, around 40-50 per cent comes from Chennai alone!" Prestigious institutes in the city like the Tuberculosis Research Centre, the Cancer Institute and the Madras Diabetes Research Foundation have come up with pioneering studies, making Chennai the locus of all research studies. Dr Sanjay Cherian, Managing Director, Frontier Lifeline, Chennai, says, "Chennai has a huge pool of experts and at the same time there is a large number of medical colleges growing rapidly."
