The Central Research Laboratory (CRL) was established in 2014 in Smt. Bangaramma Sajjan campus with financial support from BLDE (Deemed to be University). The primary purpose of the CRL is to support the research activities of the faculty, Ph.D. scholars, PG students, and UG students of the University by providing technical assistance and access to advanced and high-end scientific instruments. The secondary purpose of CRL is also to organize training programmes and workshops/seminars for staff and research scholars in the focused areas of research. The CRL with 1200 Sq. feet area provides sufficient space for multidisciplinary research.
Honorable President, B.L.D.E. Association Shri M. B. Patil, Honorable Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. M S Biradar, and Dr. Aravind Patil, Dean, Faculty of Medicine are guiding forces behind research activities in the University. The CRL in a medical college is built to provide teaching staff, researchers, and graduate students with easy access to high-end research instruments. For the further development of modern medicine, it is necessary to be fully equipped with advanced technologies such as medical, analytical, and information devices, and to utilize them in a systematic manner.
PREFACE: Teaching and Research go hand in hand and both are mutually reinforcing. To nurture research and strengthen the research infrastructure of the university, we have upgraded the Central research Laboratory (CRL) and established a Centre for Advanced Medical Research (CAMR) in the year 2021. Imbibing research culture in every student and faculty has been the vision of BLDE Deemed to be University leadership. This centre will make significant contributions to the field of biomedical research, promote student and teacher research, produce high-quality researchers, and contribute knowledge to Basic and advanced medical research. Currently, the CAMR is supported by BLDE Deemed to be University. We have developed the world-class lab infrastructure with the help of a global leader in total laboratory solutions and designs i.e. Kewaunee International Group.
The journey so far…
