Date: 08/03/2018

The Indo-JHU Clinical Research partnership at Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Government Medical College (BJGMC) in Pune, India, is on an enrollment roll. The team has enrolled more than 6,000 participants in clinical trials and epidemiological studies, with approximately 1,200 during the last year. Indo-JHU research is led by Dr. Vidya Mave, Dr. Nishi Suryavanshi, and Dr. Nikhil Gupte in collaboration with BJGMC Deans Ajay Chandanwale and Sameer Joshi, and several heads of department, including Drs. Sangle of Medicine, Bhosale of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Bharadwaj of Microbiology, Kinikar of Pediatrics, and Gaikwad of Chest Medicine.

According to BJGMC Clinical Research Site (CRS) Director Dr. Vidya Mave, “The growth in the numbers of studies and participants has presented challenges that the team has really risen to. Among contributions of more than dedicated 150 team members, we owe much of our participant recruitment and management success to effective community outreach led by Savita Kanade and truly impressive coordination of studies by Dr. Nishi Suryavanshi. The CRS team is making a difference, and we take pride in our site’s contributions.”
