Research helps to identify the causes of cancer and points a way towards the improved methods of diagnosis and treatment. Scientists conduct research studies to find better ways to prevent and treat cancer. RGCI & RC ensures that the research conducted in RGCI & RC is contemporary high end and is conducted in the scientific manner. A proposal submitted undergoes various level of scrutiny.
Any research to be conducted at RGCI & RC is first submitted to the Department of Research in the prescribed format. Research Support Activity Group has been created under the aegis of Director Research. This support group screens projects before they are sent to the Scientific Committee. Once approved by the Scientific Committee, it goes to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of RGCI & RC for the Ethical Clearance. On approval by the IRB, the study is initiated at the Institute. RGCI & RC thus, has a three tier system before the initiation of any research project.
