Artemis Education & Research Department

About Us

Artemis Education and Research Foundation (AERF), an autonomous non profit foundation guided by the board of trustees is recognized by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) as a "Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (SIRO)" to carry out research, educational and training programs in the quest of quality health care. 

It commenced with a vision and dream of Mr. Onkar Kanwar, the Chairman of Apollo Tyres Ltd and Artemis Medicare Services Limited, to build a world class research center with cutting edge technology, state-of-the-art infrastructure and best of the scientific minds promoting basic and translational research to enhance the quality of patient care and treatment. Under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Devlina Chakravarty, Managing Director of Artemis Medicare services Limited, and the profound scientific expertise and experience of Dr. Nirmal Kumar Ganguly, former Director General of Indian Council of Medical Research and Chairman of Research Artemis Medicare Services Limited, this took shape and started moving from strength to strength. Under the chairmanship of Dr. Ganguly and direction of Dr. Namita Jaggi, Chairperson of Lab services and Infection Control & Chief of Education & Research and Dr. Sudeshna Kar, Chief Scientist of Research, this innovative lab now serves as the epicenter for collaborative research projects, enabling our researchers and PhD scholars to explore the frontiers of medical science. Our cohesive team of 24 dedicated research professionals, comprising 10 esteemed scientists, 7 PhD scholars, and 7 diligent ancillary staff members, collaboratively drives the pursuit of knowledge and excellence. 

Our commitment to fostering a dynamic educational ecosystem is reflected not only in our state-of-the-art infrastructure spanning three dedicated floors, but also in our cutting-edge tools and advanced imaging equipments like confocal microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, specialized analysis tools like Flowcytometer, Next Generation Sequencing. This laboratory provides the necessary tools to support the scientific studies in the focused area of Genetic diseases and Gene therapy, Neurobiology, Cancer biology, Immunopathology, Antimicrobial Resistance, Infectious Diseases, Microbiome, Virology, Cellular Biology, Lifestyle disorder, Stem cell research and Regenerative medicine.
