Clinical/​Public Health Research Centres Grants 2021

DBT/Wellcome Trust India Alliance


DBT/​Wellcome Trust India Alliance invites applications to fund Clinical/​Public Health Research Centres (CRCs), which are envisioned as research-oriented centres’, preferably involving multiple institutions that focus on important biomedical research problems and develop physician scientists. This scheme aims to improve clinical and public health research ecosystems in India to bridge gaps in human resource, supervision, mentorship, equipment, and administration.

The CRCs would be virtual centres that could be based on either crosscutting or vertical research themes, with the training of early career physician researchers as an essential component. Though not mandatory, this scheme encourages international collaboration.
