The harvest of science should reach bedside. The most important source of the harvest is clinic with support from lab and final weeding process by statistical methods. We, at the Tata Memorial Hospital are bestowed with the widest range of patients in large numbers and finest laboratory support. A unique centre ' Clinical Research Secretariat ' was commissioned in 1997 to temper the vast data generated from clinics/laboratory and draw meaningful conclusions with clinical endpoints.

The CRS offered a wide range of services from collection, maintenance, quality control & analysis of data to design & execution of prospective trials of importance to the institute and nation. The primary aim was to generate easily testable hypothesis from focused retrospective analysis or laboratory studies. To test novel avenues with survival or quality of life end points in observational studies or randomized trials. To support mega-trials from multiple centres spread all over India. To rethink on more technology in patient care and challenging dogma with appropriate clinical studies. To collate published evidence by Meta-analysis to define the state of art treatment.

CRS has supported over 50 retrospective studies, 18 prospective studies from clinic and lab, 25 randomized clinical trials and 10 meta-analyses. Majority of the studies have been either presented or published in peer reviewed journals.
