A group of distinguished health care visionaries, impassioned by the urgent public health concerns plaguing the nation, set up the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute (THSTI) in 2009. The emphasis was on fast tracking health care solutions that would meet the intensive healthcare needs of a rapidly developing economy. In the years following its inception, THSTI has emerged as a dynamic and interactive organization with a mission to conduct innovative translational research across various disciplines to accelerate the development of concepts into tangible products for improvement of public health across the nation.
Created as an autonomous institute by the Government of India, under the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, THSTI forms a pivotal node in a broader cluster of institutes collectively referred to as the NCR Biotech Science Cluster and targetted at specializing in translational research and related endeavors. The cluster is an ambitious initiative that aims to create a unique institutional ecosystem and further synergize resources and infrastructure, coordinated development and maximize societal benefits.
