Major thrust areas for research are characterization of coronary risk factors, indigenous drugs in the management of CAD, diabetes mellitus related macrovascular and microvascular disease, dyslipidaemia in diabetes, anaemia and CAD in chronic renal failure, oxidative stress in stroke, and pedigree profile as research tool in young coronary artery disease, and tobacco-related cardiovascular disorders, cardiovascular health implications of smokeless tobacco products, and issues related to tobacco cessation.

The department developed pedigree profile and sub-clinical atherosclerosis assessment model in young coronary artery disease and started continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis for treatment of patients with end-stage renal failure. In the endocrine division, a separate endocrinology clinic and twice-weekly diabetes clinics have been started. The endocrine & metabolic lab. has also grown in capacity and infrastructure with procurement of various equipments. Diabetes, Endocrine & Metabolic ward has started to further strengthen the endocrine services. Department has now taken up the responsibility of running Antirectroviral Therapy Clinic since Feb 2009. The Department is also running Senior Citizens Clinic, Young CAD Clinic and lately the Cardiomyopathy and Tobacco Cessation Clinic.
