Indian Council of Medical Research – National Institute for Research in Reproductive and Child Health (NIRRCH)

The mandate of the Institute is to address the reproductive health issues of national and global relevance. The institute was established with an objective to develop novel and efficacious modalities for fertility regulation through research and thereby assist the government in its mission to stem the population boom. 

High priority is being given to implement the following strategic issues: develop more effective and safer fertility regulating technologies; develop safer medical methods for pregnancy termination; detect, diagnose and treat RTIs including STIs and HIV; ensure safe pregnancies; promote child health and development; alleviate health concerns related to menopause and osteoporosis; address female infertility and associated disorders such as endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome(PCOS), Premature Ovarian Failure (POF) and idiopathic male infertility. Goal is also to develop effective means for early detection of gynaecological cancers such as cervical and ovarian cancers. Further it is aimed to develop knowledge data bases of various reproductive disorders.
The Institute also foresees the importance of open-ended and exploratory research. Research on some exciting new areas such as functional genomics, structural biology, bioinformatics, preclinical reproductive and genetic toxicology, stem cell research and reproductive tract cancers has been initiated. Such research is essential to bring in fresh insights and create new hypothesis in the field of reproductive health. The infrastructure and the technical skills of the faculty are periodically strengthened by introducing state-of-the-art technologies and providing opportunities to staff for updating their skills.
