Research & Academics

Bio-medical research in S.S. Hospital has been emerged as a new potential to carry out well-allied investigative applications of Basic sciences and Cancer aspects in particular. The research department has been self-evolved to such scientific and academic contentment that it is recognized as a SIRO from DSIR, Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India. The dissertation and training programmes in different streams of Biological and Biomedical sciences are also well-recognized in and outside Bihar from various universities: Tilka Manjhi University, Bhagalpur; Vinoba Bhave University, Hazaribag; Patna University, Patna; Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-BHU), Varanasi; NIPER, Hajipur etc. The following core research laboratories are functioning very efficiently with multi-disciplinary integration and gaining more strength in terms of better facilities and dedicated skillful research personnel. Research on relatively new disciplines, but more clinically fruitful areas, has been ideally initiated in the Institute, keeping the translational outputs for the mankind, ultimately.

  • Centre of Pharmacovigilance and Clinical Oncology
  • Microbiology Laboratory
  • Biochemistry Laboratory
  • Laboratory of Pathology and Immuno-histochemistry
  • Centre for Cognitive Sciences and Palliative Care
  • Laboratory for Pre-clinical studies and Reproductive Health

PALLIATIVE CARE.

A plethora of patients who has completed their treatment; and developed recurrence and metastatic cases later, the hospital provide them efficient palliative care as they have a lot of symptoms particularly, pain, agony, depression, hallucinations etc.

Such types of patients need quality palliative care where they can be made comfortable in the remaining part of life; for which the hospital aims to start a “Hospice” where these patients exclusively would get treatment with a touch of homely love and affection.

 

DEPARTMENT COMMUNITY ONCOLOGY PROGRAM

The hospital believes that Oncological scenario in this country will not change if collective efforts are not focused on community Oncology works where awareness, Cancer Education, Prevention, early detection should be given on top priority. Keeping these aspects in mind, the hospital has been doing lots of activities targeting the poor, less-educated patients and the general public in the society. This hospital has carried out many training programs for the trainers and the target is mostly schools, colleges and different academic organizations.

To popularize this endeavor even at the remote area, the hospital has implemented regular “Out-Reach programmes”. The hospital has a dedicated team working at various nodal regions for the “Tobacco Cessation programme” in the state and after a period of 6 years it was observed that all the societal efforts made by this hospital has generated a remarkable image in the public; and the hospital continues to witness a large number of public coming for screening and check-ups. The initiative of Community Oncology has benefited millions in many parts of Bihar till date and the scenario continues to be more strengthened with better coverage and updates from professional Oncologists to medical-attention requiring remote places.
