Welcome to Indian Council of Medical Research-National Institute of Immunohaematology (ICMR-NIIH).
ICMR-NIIH is a premiere research institute of ICMR focusing on basic and translational research in the area of hematology, transfusion medicine and immunology. Our thrust areas of research include transfusion medicine, hemoglobinopathies and red cell enzymopathies, hemostasis and thrombosis, primary immunodeficiency diseases, autoimmune diseases, inherited and acquired marrow failure syndromes, hematological malignancies and transfusion transmitted diseases. We have a small but extremely dedicated team of researchers with national and international repute in their respective fields.
The research activities of the institute integrate both basic and clinical research to understand pathophysiology of various inherited and acquired hematological and immunological disorders and utilize the knowledge for better management and prevention of these disorders. We have excellent clinical collaborations with all neighboring hospitals including KEM Hospital, Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children, Nawrosjee Wadia Maternity Hospital, etc. We aspire to expand our collaborations to encompass academic and research collaborations with institutes within India and outside India. NIIH has taken some concrete steps in these directions by including signing MOU with IIT-B, ICT- Mumbai and NIAID-NIH, USA.
Institute also provides services for comprehensive diagnosis and genetic counseling of the families affected with inherited diseases including prenatal diagnostic services. We also focus on developing simple cost-effective technologies for diagnosis and management of various immunohematological disorders.
The academic program of our institute continues to attract young talent towards its M.Sc and Ph.D programs. We also provide short term training for postgraduate students from neighboring medical colleges. We strive to provide state of the art facilities and healthy competitive research environment to all the students and researchers at NIIH.
