Integrative and Trans- disciplinary Research Center

Prof.Dr.Suresh Patankar

President

It gives me immense pleasure to present this brief vision document on the proposed venture “Integrative and Trans disciplinary Research Centre” on behalf of “Arogya Seva Medical Academy of India” Pune, a Charitable Trust. According to WHO, it is estimated that, at the global level more than 80% population is dependent upon traditional systems of medicine for primary health care. Fortunately, India has a rich heritage of knowledge arising from traditional systems of medicines like Ayurveda , Unani , Yoga and Siddha which are now facing a transition. Lack of newer inputs from the present approaches has led to a growing interest in research based on traditional leads from the scientific community.

In the present scenario, a trans-disciplinary approach through education and research supported by traditional knowledge, integrating bio medical sciences like molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, molecular pharmacology, genomics, and Nano-technology is needed. Following new research approaches like reverse pharmacology, systems biology and basic sciences as tools, would generate new knowledge vectors. These in turn would help in translational research for the betterment of healthcare practices, which are facing certain limitations in the modern system of medicine.

I sincerely hope that our humble endeavor will bear fruit in near future.
