Foundation for Medical Research is a Public Trust that depends largely on the generosity of individuals and organizations to help in the undertaking its objectives. The Foundation has recognition u/s 35(i)(ii) of the Income Tax Act, which enables the donors to avail of tax exemption and has also recently been awarded exemption u/s 80G and registered through CSR-1 to widen the breadth of the donor community. The FMR has been granted renewed permission to accept foreign funding in line with the modified FCRA Act of 2020 upto the year 2025.
As the Foundation is posed to enhance the direction of its work (where are we headed) towards more translational preventive and public health aspects of health and disease, the search for funding assumes greater importance. While the Foundation has a modest corpus and has been successful in garnering project funds with a specific purpose that supports current endeavours, further support is required to expand and sustain the organization’s objectives.

Researchers are an integral part of the Foundation’s success. To enhance its research capacity in the newer areas, the Foundation is looking to employ senior researchers with expertise in environmental sciences, bioinformatics, spatial epidemiology and public health research. This would help to develop the evidence base first through pilot inquiries and then through an expanded network of projects. Support is needed to help fund the salary/fellowship and provide start-up research grants.
These studies establish the need and provide direction for further research. It helps to formulate research project proposal which are then submitted for funding to Indian and foreign scientific organizations. Currently, we are seeking immediate support for the following pilot projects
