CCDC undertakes clinical research with special emphasis on chronic non-communicable diseases (NCD). Within the spectrum of chronic diseases, our main focus areas are: cardiology, diabetes and metabolic disease, vascular diseases, cancers and mental health. In addition, basic science research in diet/nutrition and cardiac biochemistry are also carried out.
The research work at CCDC has produced major insights into the epidemiology, developmental origin, and biomarkers of CVD and diabetes in India; practice patterns on Acute Coronary Syndrome; translation research in CVDs; and development of low-cost combination drugs for primary and secondary prevention of CVDs in South Asia. CCDC holds recognition as a ‘Centre of Excellence in Clinical Research’ from the Clinical Development Service Agency (CDSA), Department of Biotechnology, Government of India.

The Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is a public private initiative that has collaboratively evolved through consultations with multiple constituencies including Indian and international academia, state and central governments, multi & bi-lateral agencies and civil society groups. PHFI is a response to redress the limited institutional capacity in India for strengthening training, research and policy development in the area of Public Health.
Structured as an independent foundation, PHFI adopts a broad, integrative approach to public health, tailoring its endeavours to Indian conditions and bearing relevance to countries facing similar challenges and concerns. The PHFI focuses on broad dimensions of public health that encompass promotive, preventive and therapeutic services, many of which are frequently lost sight of in policy planning as well as in popular understanding. The former Prime Minister of India launched PHFI on March 28, 2006 at New Delhi. PHFI recognizes the fact that meeting the shortfall of health professionals is imperative to a sustained and holistic response to the public health concerns in the country which in turn requires health care to be addressed not only from the scientific perspective of what works, but also from the social perspective of, who needs it the most.
