The scheme has been designed to link clinical science departments through inter-institutional linkages with basic science institutes & university departments with medical or veterinary school departments. The scheme is under implementation since 2010-11 and its purpose is to establish a long term partnership programmes between clinical and basic sciences.
The key components of the scheme include…
- Ph.D. programme in which focus is on disease biology, early translation, interdisciplinary research, or technology innovation. Each Ph.D. student would have a guide from each partner, and share responsibility for structured education and training in the initial period of Ph.D. programme.
- Joint participation in mutual education and training activities at post-graduate or Ph.D. level with focus on building science competency of medical background scholars and faculty, and disease orientation of basic scientists in areas of interest.
- Joint workshops, small science meetings, research priority development exercise in areas of mutual interest.
- Initiated collaborative research projects which are in progress.
