Clinical and Public Health Research Centre (CRC) Grants
Clinical /Public Health Research Centre Grants are institutional grants, envisioned as research-oriented centres with focus on major biomedical research problems and are meant to promote clinical/public health research and develop physician scientists to empower clinicians and public health scientists to carry out patient- and population-oriented research in addition to patient care and preventive medicine.
CRCs may also link up with the Clinical Research Training Programme (CRTP) to develop a 3–4-year mentored training programme for clinical/public health researchers and seek separate funds for that CRTP. CRTP would fund 3 to 4-year mentored research training fellowships for medical graduates (MBBS) and post-graduates (MD/MS/equivalent).
