TBI – Program Manager

   The Mazumdar Shaw Medical Foundation was started in 2014, with the belief that only a will, highly motivated by compassion can direct science towards intelligent innovations that convert today’s expensive medical discoveries into affordable solutions. To make this possible, a strategy was developed to seamlessly incorporate a high-tech hospital with translational research facilities, medical outreach & compassionate care programs and technology development capabilities, into a highly interactive ecosystem. The idea is to create a new hospital culture where every health-worker has ready access to resources for guided innovation at multiple levels. The Mazumdar Shaw Medical Center (MSMC), a unit of Narayana Health, with the Mazumdar Shaw Center for Translational Research (MSCTR), Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Outreach Program (MSCOP) and the Technology Business Incubator (TBI) are the current 4 pillars of the Mazumdar Shaw Medical Foundation. This ecosystem is providing a unique opportunity for bridging medical practice with research, sociology & economics, technology and medical design.

   In June 2015, the Mazumdar Shaw Medical Foundation in lieu of the translation research facilities infrastructure being setup was conferred upon the TBI status by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. Following which in July 2019, we were conferred upon the BIONEST status by BIRAC, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. This recognition allowed the infrastructure the support system to both in-house clinicians and external entrepreneurs to setup the enterprise path for their research ideas emerging from a clinical need. Our Mission is to be a powerful interactive environment for sensitising entrepreneurs and scientists to the everyday challenges faced by highly accomplished clinicians and educate healthcare personnel to identify and leverage opportunities emerging in engineering sciences.
