Joint Research Projects (JRP)

IMED is very proactive towards promotion of research among faculty and students of the institute. A novel idea of Joint Research Projects (JRP) has been introduced which encompasses joint research study by the faculty and student, based upon the summer internship projects carried out by the students. Most of the Summer industry projects focus on the industry study with less of research component. The Faculty Guides identify the summer internship projects having good research value and then together the faculty and the student convert the project into Joint Research Projects. This endeavour helps develop the research skills of the faculty and students alike. Some JRP are further converted into research papers are then considered for publication in research journals.
