About the Institute: Jamia Hamdard Institute of Molecular Medicine
JH-IMM aims to be a leading research Institute with expertise in and emphasis on biological, medical, chemical and computational approaches to biomedical research, particularly for investigating the molecular basis of human diseases and intervention. Our vision is to articulate and lead in the evolving areas combining ‘traditional and modern medicine’, to be a major center of discovery in biomedical research and develop into a world-class science and educational research entity within the JH fraternity. The JH-IMM will also pursue a major educational mission providing state-of-the-art meetings and courses in biomedical research.
The mission of JH-IMM is to develop a multi-disciplinary approach via successful collaborations to bridge the gap between basic and clinical or translational sciences in India. This multidisciplinary interphase research is an unexplored area in our country, with vast unmet demands relevant to the health needs of the population. Scientists at JH-IMM are involved in scientific programs, which try to integrate laboratory and clinical research, with an aim to develop new and innovative therapeutic modalities with an active interest in disease intervention strategies and assay development for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Interest will not be limited to vaccines or macro/micro-molecular clinical intervention but will also include traditional Indian medicines (Unani/Ayurvedic) along with marketed or phase III compounds to “repurpose or reposition” for various biological targets using proprietary assays and software.
