AIIA, CCRAS discuss research and education in Ayush

The top officials of All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) and Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS) discussed research and education in Ayush in a meeting held on May 10, 2023.

AIIA stated that the objective of the interactive meet was to brainstorm and set goals to capitalize on the expertise and experience of the Chairs in academic and research avenues.

The participants discussed the research education ecosystem in Ayush Colleges, in both graduation and post-graduation levels. The meeting was focussed on Research & Development, Education & capacity building in the Ayush sector. All the Directors presented their success stories.

Vd. Rajesh Kotecha, Secretary Ministry of Ayush, said “Today we all have gathered here to brainstorm how we can collectively use the expertise and knowledge of the distinguished chair and set up the goal for the future. Pandemic was the opportunity for Ayush to develop their science and Ayush did it by developing Ayush 64, etc. I would request the leaders to brainstorm and discuss how we can utilize Ayush science for our Young researchers which can help the country and the world.”

Pramod Kumar Pathak, Special Secretary, Ministry of Ayush, said “I would like to congratulate AIIA and CCRAS on organizing this meeting. This meeting will help researchers to get the insights from Ayush Distinguished Chairs and know their experience in their field. Initiative like today’s was the need of the hour. The Ministry of Ayush is working to promote Ayush’s patents and researches”.

Prof. (Dr) Tanuja Nesari, Director AIIA said, “It is a historic movement when Administrators, Policy makers, Education experts, Researchers and distinguished Scientists have come under one platform. The opportunity is provided by the Ministry of Ayush and we would like to thank the Ministry for it. We are blessed and honoured to host the distinguished chairs supported by CCRAS. We have been working since ages, but this is our first official meeting, and it is the biggest opportunity to showcase each other's success stories and learn by filling our gaps. This platform gives us an opportunity to create evidence-based Ayurveda creating a disciplinary model and integration.

Prof. Vd Rabinarayan Acharya, Director General CCRAS, said “When we compare Ayush with the Chinese alternative method of treatment, it has much more potential to go high. During COVID time Ayush system has registered more clinical studies, in comparison to the Chinese system of medicines. It is the reason we are here today, to generate pathways to expand the horizon of Ayush. It is high time to give much priority to research.”

To carry forward the work the Ministry of Ayush has appointed five Ayush Distinguished Scientist Chairs in the domains of Interdisciplinary Clinical Research, Public health and Epidemiology, Ayurveda biology and Basic sciences, Pharmaceutical Drug Development and Consciousness and Cognitive Sciences.
