As the number of diseases and their cure are increasing each day, students are getting more interested in making the act of research their career prospect. But first, let’s try to understand what the clinical research is all about? Including various studies and experiments on a particular drug, clinical research is the first step where a medicine is explored and tested after launching and thus results are concluded whether it can be marketed or not. From side-effects to safety issues, the drug is examined from all corners and then results are released by the clinical research company. This entire process is done by a clinical researcher, thus making it a highly significant and crucial job.

Established in 2004, the Institute of Clinical Research India (ICRI) is one of the best institutes in India for Clinical Research and healthcare. Based in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, the institute was the first one to introduce India's first Ph.D. Clinical Research programme in the country.
