Major Activities

Research & Development

Globally, development of better methods for accurate assessment of vaccines employing different formats is pursued vigorously. NCIA proposes to keep pace with these developmental activities and engage in relevant innovative research.

For this, it is mandatory to carry out relevant research that will complement such testing, improve the current methods and look for additional tests/parameters that will be useful in vaccine/antiviral evaluation. Immune response of the vaccines against evolving Indian strains of pathogens is an important activity that will enhance the productivity and add value of national importance.

Testing Services
