Regional Research Laboratory (RRL), a unit of the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, New Delhi, is one of the prime Institutes involved in two major fields of research, namely drug design and development of microbial biotechnology. Nevertheless, the overall aim of this Institute is to further the industrial development in the north western region of the country.


Indian Institute of integrative Medicine, Jammu a constituent unit of Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, New Delhi, is one of the premier Institutes engaged in two major areas of research namely, Drug, Design and Development and Microbial Biotechnology. However, overall aim of this Institute is to boost the industrial development of the North Western region of the country. The Institute was established in 1941 as a low key research and production centre known as Drug Research Laboratory of J&K State and was later taken over by CSIR in December 1957. The Institute was lucky to have Col. Sir Ram Nath Chopra, Prof. of Pharmacology as its Founder Director. He was an outstanding luminary in the field of Medical Education and Research and has been widely acclaimed as the Father of Indian Pharmacology.        

Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine, Jammu was designed to be a multi disciplinary institute with emphasis on applied and developmental aspects to suit the regional aspirations.We changed our focal point of activities as per the demand of the changing times and developed our competence accordingly tdirect our efforts effectively. This lnstitute has come  up to the expectations of the monitoring and other supporting agencies over the years and has been keeping up with the Nation's think-tank. The Institute has always kept the futuristic trends in science in view and created the infrastructure as well as human resource to face the new challenges.Over the last few years the activities of Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine have become more focused. In the research and development work of the institute more attention is being paid to prospecting the abundant natural resources available, both of plant and microbial origin, enabled by biotechnology, to develop technologies, drugs and products of high value for the national and international markets. The unproductive projects are being regularly evaluated and phased out on the pattern suggested under Zero Base Budget System.

The research projects of the institute are centered on the following thrust areas:
  • Development of plant based agents as bioefficacy promoters /bioenhancers  
  • Prospecting biodiversity for its chemistry and bioactivity 
  • Conservation and production of prioritized medicinal & aromatic plants and their crop husbandry 
  • Process development and upscale technology for valuable phytopharmaceuticals 
  • Prospecting microbial biodiversity of North-Western Himalayas     
Administrative Profile of Regional Research Laboratory

Director: Dr. G.N.Quazi


Aims & Objectives of Regional Research Laboratory (RRL)
Regional Research Laboratory, Jammu, like all other RRL's has been designed as a multidimensional Institute with emphasis on applied and developmental aspects to suit the regional demands.
The basic objective of building of this laboratory is to gainfully tap the biodiversity of the Himalayas and put the state on the scientific map of India and the world.
Sir P.H. Clutterbuck, the then Chief Conservator of Forests J&K Govt.and Col. Sir R. N. Chopra were mainly instrumental in the birth of Drug Research Laboratory in November 1941, which was involved in production of selected drugs and research in the specialized areas of Botany, Chemistry, Pharmacology of medicinal and aromatic plants
