Contract Clinical Research is a nascent development in the past decade in and outside India. India has become an eminent outsourcing hub for Clinical Research. This Industry now has an urgent and huge demand for highly competent and skillful professionals to cope up with the surprisingly unexpected demand of outsourcing to India. Earlier Reports state that up to 30% global Clinical trials will take place outside U.S and Western Europe. India has emerged as one of the most favorable destinations for these trails. Also, it is now national challenge to make the best out of this scope and opportunity available to our students. With the advancement of biomedical Research, Clinical Research has paved its way for dealing and finding effective ways for precise treatment, diagnosis, cure and prevention of occurrence of disorders in masses. Our University is one of the first ones to provide a platform to few aspiring candidates for whom sky is the limit, in the area of Clinical Research.
