Coffee Book

Policy Research

Policy Research is in infancy in India and requires thrust by funding agencies. Evidence based formulation of policy in science requires rigorous PhD programs which pursue compelling research questions relevant to management of research and its development. In view of this we have continued to write policy briefs such that it evokes policy research activity in India. By identifying the barriers in conducting smooth research, it is possible to form new guidelines that promotes research. The articles compiled here fulfill such gap in Indian research.

Quality assurance in Neuroscience Research Lab

The conventional system of running research labs in India was based on no established or uniform method of management relying on individual preferences and experiences. The much-needed quality practices could not be established for a long time in India which resulted in an unorganized data recording and less credible scientific data. The quest for implementation of such practices led by Neuroscience Research Lab headed by Dr. Akshay Anand which for the first time redefined the basic research investigations backed by quality benchmarks. This unique implementation required sustained training of human resources who along with their basic research also practiced Good lab practices, hitherto used in the clinical trial agencies.

Stem cell studies

The coffee book is a compilation of articles on stem cells defining the role, benefits, and potency to rescue degenerative disorders. All the experiments and protocols were done under the GLP compliance laboratory. This coffee book is a bundle of knowledge on stem cells under one roof. This book includes all the information to learn and explore more about stem cells.

Biomarker discovery in Brain disorders

This coffee book is an initiative by the Neuroscience Research Lab (NRL) to compile the various research articles of NRL regarding biomarker discovery. The biomarker discovery is backed up by the Predictive regression models that can help to predict the risk of the disease in relation to various factors such as aging, smoking etc. Molecules related to neuroprotection and neurodegeneration have been explored for their potential of biomarkers.

Neurodegenerative disorders

“Neurodegenerative disorders” is a compilation of many interesting findings and related publications of Neuroscience Research Lab in the last decade. To highlight, we could come up with a consensus review article collaborating with international authors from the field of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) to explain how pre-clinical studies can be translated into successful clinical trials for AD. Also, there are critical reviews on the current perspectives of several other NDDs such as Parkinson’s disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Cord injuries, and Age-related Macular Degeneration in the context of Indian scenario and beyond.

Animal models in neurodegenrative disorders

“Animal models in Neurodegenerative Disorders” is a compilation of articles that were published from the Neuroscience Research Laboratory (NRL). NRL, since its inception is committed to continuously advancing the knowledge in the field of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Age-related Macular Degeneration, retinal ischemia, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The research in NRL can be broadly divided into two divisions. One is based on clinical samples collected from patients suffering from diseases which are studied for biomarker discovery to serve as a tool for early prognosis of the disease. The second division involves the use of lab animals to mimic the neurodegenerative disorders and then use these animal models to better understand the pathophysiology of these diseases at cellular and molecular levels as well as to test various treatment strategies to prevent disease progression.

Traditional Sciences

“Traditional Sciences” is an amalgamation of Yoga and meditative practices with scientific shreds of evidence. The present book focuses on bringing modern and traditional medicine together to provide better therapeutic and preventive treatment strategies to ameliorate various diseases and pre-diseased conditions. The present book is a collection of multiple categories of articles published in reputed peer-reviewed journals from the Neuroscience Research Lab (NRL), explicitly investigating Yoga and Ayurveda’s potential on various maladies.
