Director's Desk

In 1962, about 54 years ago, "Cholera Research Centre" was established in Calcutta (Kolkata) by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) to conduct research on prevention and control of cholera and other diarrheal diseases.In 1968, the Centre was given the status of "International Reference Centre for Vibrio Phage Typing" by the WHO following the outstanding studies on cholera phages in Kolkata and later on, in 1978, it was designated as the "WHO Collaborative Centre for Reference and Research on Vibrios". Subsequently, ICMR converted this Centre into a full-fledged research organization with the status of a "National Institute" and renamed it as "National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases" (NICED) in 1979. The WHO recognized this Institute as "WHO Collaborative Centre for Research and Training on Diarrhoeal Diseases" in 1980.

History of journey of NICED over last five decades was eventful. We developed good infrastructure, faculty strength andacademic ambience to conduct good quality biomedical research which resulted in strengthening health system related programs like Diarrhoea Disease Control Program and implementation of Oral rehydration therapy by the Department of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India. NICED worked in tandem with the State Health department by implementing the evidence based research at the community level with funds from national and international agencies to achieve the goal of 'health for all'. Translational research is another important area NICED stresses upon which enables establishing the application of laboratory based research findings in the field situation. NICED also focuses on capacity building and Human resource development (HRD) resulting in dissemination of research opportunities to a number of pre-doctoral research fellows for obtaining their PhD degrees as well as to the Post-doctoral fellows for conducting independent research.
