“It will be a dedicated research centre working on proteomic research in the fields of orthopaedics and spinal disorders,” S. Rajasekaran, Chief of the Research Centre, said in the hospital’s press release.

He further added that the centre, set up at a cost of Rs. 150 crores, will help in the research, to improve treatment and care. “Genomics and Proteomics are the two upcoming fields, which will help in understanding diseases at molecular level, and seek newer treatment for human ailments,” said Rajasekaran.

He also stated that the laboratory will be monitored by a panel of scientists, to provide valuable inputs for research.

The centre is to be inaugurated by the Director General of the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR), Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, at Ganga Spine Rehabilitation Centre.
