Clinical Trials - Early History

The history of Drug discovery is often fascinating. Many of the drugs that are used today have been discovered by chance or often by mere serendipity. India's history of drug discovery and proficiency in Medical Research can be traced back to , Two ancient scripts, Charaka Samhita (a textbook of medicine) and Sushruta Samhita (a textbook of surgery), compiled as early as 200 B. C. and 200 A. D. respectively.

Sure, science involves trial and error. Scientists refine theories each day. But as they do, they help us grasp more clearly the wonders of the world and the universe. - Tony Snow

Hi everyone. I need some guidance from all Clinical Research experts. I want to pursue a course : "Masters in Clinical Research : MSCR" offered by ICRI-MUSC. It is a 2 year course, 1st year course by ICRI Global Research and 2nd year course by Medical University of South Carolina. Is this a genuine course or some sort of gamble? Please give your valuable guidance. I have completed my MSc in Biochemistry this year in India.

Yes, clinical research is a growing industry in India at the moment. I am a BSc Biochem and want to make my career in this field. I recently joined James Lind Institute for my clinical research course and I hope to get placed somewhere soon.

There is a need of good clinical researcher professionals as India is going to be major hub of clinical trial industry. This can be achieved by educating medical professionals, researchers and graduates on Good Clinical Practice, Ethical conduct of the trial, discouraging fabrication of data and following timelines.

Good Morning!

I am Dr. Harshit Mehta working as an associated project manager at Pro Life Sciences Pvt. Ltd. a full service CRO based in Delhi.

I would like to mention here is that with the amount of work increasing in clinical research in india, we would definitely require more qualified and competent professional for this field.

It will become mandatory to do a degree or a certified course in clinical research in future.

So people who want to pursue their career in clinical research, start looking for reliable institute and courses to enhance your capabilities.

There is a dire need for a vast majority of doctors in every stream of medicine to acquire specialised knowledge about clinical research in order to help the pharma industry discover newer drugs and bring them into the market to manage health of the people. Anovus Institute of Clinical Resarch in Chandigarh is the newest addition, north of Delhi, to start certification programme for the working physicians to acquire skill and knowledge in clinical research while graduates from life sciences can opt for six month or one year diploma programme.
