Neuro Core Committee

A core Group of eminent neurologists and experts with research experience in neuropidemiology, clinical and basic research at ICMR identifies key areas in neurosciences where research can be initiated and funded by the Council. The framework used by Core Group for scientific discussions and deliberations focuses on four guiding principles for undertaking research over next five years:
1. What are the most important neurological disorders which will require epidemiological research during the next five years?
2. In which areas tools for diagnosis and treatment need to be developed?
3. What important tools for prevention, diagnosis and treatment are emerging globally and need to be validated in the country?
4. What are the important challenges arising for future research in neurosciences and what strategies can be used to tackle these?
