Central Research Laboratory (CRL) was established in the year 2007 to serve as a central research support system for the constituent colleges of Nitte (Deemed to be University). The CRL has state of art facilities to support high quality research in interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary areas to meet contemporary challenges. The center is committed to enhance research support through identifying the thrust areas of research, formulating the study designs, guiding in grant applications and has successfully generated substantial support from external funding agencies - NIH, BRNS, ICMR, Nitte (DU), DIBER DRDO, INMAS DRDO, VGST, CPCRI. It has collaborations with international and national organizations. It is also associated with well - maintained animal house facility. The center also provides major student consultancies for UG and PG both internal and external with its research facilities.
To develop advanced knowledge through quality research towards national development with standard ethics.
