The main focus of the research of the Institute is on Leprosy which covers several themes such as:

  • Understanding the disease better using electrophysiological, immunological, molecular and electro-microscopic tools.
  • Developing better tecnologies for diagnosis using immunological, molecular and in-situ techniques.
  • Viability determinations using mouse foot-pad, ATP and molecular methods.
  • Studies on drug resistance using molecular methods.
  • Studies on transmission using epidemiological and molecular approaches.
  • Improvising Treatment regimens and surgical methods.
  • Studies on drug metabolism, disposition and kinetics.
