A distinguished group of health care visionaries set up the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute (THSTI) in 2009. They were impassioned by the urgent Public Health concerns that faced the nation. The emphasis was on fast tracking health care solutions that would meet the needs of a rapidly developing economy in need of health care intensity for its dynamic population. THSTI was mandated to advance knowledge to health care for the community. In the three years that have followed its inception, THSTI has developed with a zeal befitting the corridors of learning.
Created as an autonomous institute by the Government of India, under the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, THSTI will form a pivotal node in a broader cluster of institutes known as the NCR Biotech Science Cluster. Institutes in the cluster will specialize in translational research and related endeavors. It is an ambitious initiative that aims to create a unique institutional ecosystem for the conduct of truly multidisciplinary research for translation to targeted medical innovations for improvement of public health.
