From Director's Desk (Prof. Sunit K. Singh)

Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Center for Biomedical Research (ACBR) is a unique center, which is engaged to train the young minds in the area of Biomedical education and research under the University of Delhi. ACBR is committed to solve problems and unmet needs related to the human well-being in the today's era of rapidly evolving world. The thrust areas of research at ACBR apply across a broad spectrum of academic disciplines include Drug Discovery and Drug Development, Medical Biotechnology, Molecular Modeling and DNA Diagnostics, Molecular Oncology, Immunology, Genomics & Proteomics, Medicinal Chemistry, Cancer Genetics, Human Genetics and Neuropharmacology.

A major challenge in biology is to comprehend the enormous complexity of biological systems, and to translate this knowledge from bench to bedside in order to add value in the improvement of the health and wellbeing of the people. The insights in understanding the principles governing the biological system will have a fruitful impact in achieving the goals, which are directly or indirectly linked to the health and disease. ACBR has made its place both nationally and internationally based on the quality research and training.

ACBR would like to strengthen the existing central facilities, which are the backbone for education, research and training. I believe this effort will be very useful for the students and faculty members. ACBR believes in the collaborative research through long-term affiliations that incorporate educational and research solutions. ACBR is committed to utilize the talents of faculty members and University leadership to work with collaborative partners on capacity-building and concept of translational research by creating models of comprehensive and integrative education and training. ACBR would continue ongoing active collaborations with several Institutes. In addition, ACBR will also develop new collaborations in selected research areas with other reputed National and International Institutes/Universities for the benefit of the students, research scholars and faculties.

An additional responsibility of ACBR is to also keep students motivated for inventiveness and creativity. ACBR is committed to bridge the gaps in teaching and learning activities by fostering the cross-disciplinary interactions among faculty members and students. We are committed to see that ACBR creates value among students and catalyzes academic grantsmanship of new knowledge. ACBR has been established with a cause to serve humanity by enhancing the research-based knowledge system. We encourage all collaborators, academic organization to contact us and get engaged. We look forward to working with you.
