Research has been an integral part of our Medical Education since its inception of Medical College. Research has received major thrust after being conferred the Deemed University status. We, at BLDE (DU) strongly believe Teaching and Research should go hand-in-hand and complement each other.
Improving mothers, infants, and children’s well-being is an important public health goal for our country. Their well-being determines the health of the next generation and can help predict future public health challenges for families, communities, and the health care system. Despite the remarkable progress made in reducing women’s and children’s deaths, many of them still die each year. Since healthy women and children are the cornerstones for healthy and thriving societies, investing in their health is vital to achieving the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda.
Centre for Social Determinants of Health
Health is defined as “A state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely absence of disease or infirmity” – WHO. Social factors that determine health include, but are not limited to factors like poverty, ignorance, pollution, contaminated drinking water, and food access. All these factors have channeled our efforts towards building a research center that would allow physicians, researchers, health professionals, and students to come together and learn about how they can improve the health of their community and combat these types of “social determinants”. With this idea, we envisioned developing a “Centre of Excellence for Social Determinants of Health”.
‘Laboratory of Vascular Physiology & Medicine’ (LVPM) is a specialized research laboratory established in the Department of Physiology under the Faculty of Medicine, BLDE University. This laboratory is working extensively on Experimental Physiology and Clinical Physiology/Medicine research. The Laboratory is formally inaugurated on the 15th.December 2015 by Professor Robert G.Carroll (East Carolina University, NC, USA) & Professor Dewan S.A.Majid (Tulane University, New Orleans, USA).
