The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), New Delhi is the apex body in India for the formulation, coordination and promotion of biomedical research. It is one of the oldest medical research bodies in the world. The council promotes biomedical research in the country through its research institutes and units, and provides grants/fellowships for different kinds of research activities. We feel proud to have such a pioneer organisation as ICMR to be a partner for EPHP 2016. ICMR will send delegates from their affiliate organisations and also provide scientific inputs for the conference. They will also help in facilitating thegovernment representation at the conference from both the centre and states.
