The institute has been engaged in several innovative, operational, educational, epidemiological, and translational researches along with some basic research in collaborations. A list of some of our recent and old peer reviewed publications are placed below to highlights our research activities. The list of some of our publications elaborates the claims. Most of these works been done without any support from outside and this remains one of the reason that the institute could not generate very high quality evidence in many important areas.
