No scope, do not fall into the trap of either CREMA or ICRI, as they do not have any recognition by Indian Authorities. They are charging around 4 lacs and the return is as less as 25k( as they have claimed); and also i am not at all convinced with their foreign tie-ups and placements. It could just turn out to be a bitter farce in the end. So guys, just be careful. Ask UGC directly and the MHRD whether they should opt for such a subject.

Clinical Research is of many types.It can be bedside done by doctors and nurses and clinical assistants.It may be very basic to vary advanced involving no technology to advance technology.Epidiemological research is undertaken by departments and institutes for finding prevalence ,morbidity ,mortality etc .This helps in allocation of resources funding and health policy drafting.
research in diagnostic and devices used to monitor and confirm the disease or to profile them range from genetics to bioengineering and biodesign.All these types of research has a very good scope in this country as well abroad and many indian scientists are working at prestigeous centres world-wide.As for contract research in drug trals in various phases it is a sunrise industry but is probably going to intial pangs .The quality of this research depends on the basic design of the enquiry and the quality and dedication of the investigators.It is definitely paying if you rope in good companies and frame good stud ...more

The kind of Clinical Research being done in India today is basically Contract Research for drugs in the pre approval stage for Multinational Drug companies and is therefore limited to finding out the bioavailability and possible serum levels of drugs besides screening for toxicity if any. Hence if you are interested in a job that pays you well for a limited type and period of work .... this is good. However, if you interested in pure research, this is not the area where you will find a lot of challenges !
