The Centre for Ayurveda Biology works with an aim of understanding concept and practices of Traditional Medicine (TM) through modern scientific tools and techniques. Thus, in real sense, it works for bridging the gap between SHASTRA and SCIENCE.
Centre for Ayurveda Biology has two main focus areas,
- Developing modern scientific evidence for Ayurvedic concepts and practices
- Augmenting conservation of resources used in traditional medicine
All the research in the Centre is guided by Traditional Knowledge and current health needs. Theoretical understanding of TM concepts is followed by rigorous scientific experimentation mainly involving chemistry and biology. The research is expected to give leads for efficient use of TM for fulfilling contemporary health needs.
