Nichi-In* Centre for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM) is an institute affiliated with the Tamilnadu Dr. MGR Medical University in India. NCRM is the first Indo-Japan joint venture institute in the country, carrying out research, training and clinical applications-protocol development in regenerative medicine, with emphasis on Stem cells, Progenitor cells and autologous adult cells with regenerative capability.

NCRM provides a platform for collaboration between like minded scientists and clinicians in all specialties of medicine where there is a potential for regenerative medicine based solutions.

NCRM is affiliated with the Acharya Nagarjuna University for a PhD program and is a collaborator to the Training Programme in Regenerative Medicine (TPRM) by the University of Toronto, McMaster University and Ottawa University.

One of our core strengths has been the possession of technology (both materials and methodologies) for processing, expanding and preservation of stem cells, precursor cells as well as mature cells. We have an unique advantage of having biomaterial and nanotechnology based (without animal protein contamination) stem cell processing and expansion technology through our collaboration with Japanese institutes.
