Admission Notices

The Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) is one of the first laboratories to be established in India right after its independence. CDRI is among the thirty nine laboratories that are functioning under the aegis of the council of scientific and Industrial Research CSIR of India. CDRI was formally inaugurated on 17th Feb 1951 by the then Prime Minister of India, Jawahar Lal Nehru. CDRI is considered to be a pioneer research organization in the field of biomedical research where all the infrastructure and expertise are available to develop a drug right from its concept to market. The very latest techniques and methodologies are employed for developing drugs, diagnostics and vaccines. CDRI is a multidisciplinary research laboratory, employing scientific personnel from various areas of biomedical sciences. For administrative and scientific purposes the Institute's manpower has been grouped into 17 R & D divisions and few divisions providing technical and scientific support. The following divisions of CDRI are involved in Research and Development.

The NLAC possesses complete facilities for breeding and maintenance of laboratory animals under standard husbandry conditions. The centre houses animal strains of different species of rodents, including inbred strains of mice, rat, hamster, logomorphs and nude mice. The centre also possesses specific pathogen free (SPF) and complete germfree (gnotobiotic) rodent breeding nuclei and a facility for primate behaviour studies and primate breeding.

This centre is self contained with its own Radiology, Genetics, Microbiology, Pathology, Nutrition, Parasitology, Services etc. for disease monitoring and management of laboratory animals. The environment provided to animals housed in the centre - including cages, feed, water etc. - matches with specifications laid down by Bureau of Indian Standards .

This centre takes care of humane handling of animals and follows Indian National science Academy guidelines for this purpose. NLAC is registered with the Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) for breeding and experiments on animals.

NLAC supplies animals for research projects of CDRI and to the outside institutions throughout India and abroad after necessary regulatory clearance. The centre also imparts training to nationals as well as International scientists/technicians and provide consultancy in this area.

Tissue Culture Unit

also has established a Tissue Culture Unit where human and animal cell lines are maintained. These cell lines are made available to the scientists of CDRI as well as the outside research institutes. The major purpose of this unit is to provide alternatives to the animal usage to scientists. The use of animals is minimised wherever possible by using cell lines in place of animals.The NLAC possesses complete facilities for breeding and maintenance of laboratory animals under standard husbandry conditions.
