Recognizing the facts that medical genetics cuts across various disciplines of science, and it is not possible to bring in all the expertise required for cutting-edge research and education in medical genetics, a Star Alliance has been formed to create synergy and symbiosis, as described below. The synergy arises from the value-addition provided by various partners of NIBMG. It is believed that ultimately these alliances will become so interwoven that NIBMG and its partners will become completely dependent on each other for carrying out their research. Such symbiotic relationships are essential to good science.
Education alliance is required for the success of the educational programmes to be implemented by NIBMG. Refresher and Special courses will be conducted for students and faculty members of colleges and universities in a modularized way. These courses will be upgraded to Certificate and Degree Courses over time and will be conducted jointly with relevant institutions
Since it will not be possible to retain in-house super-speciality clinicians, clinical alliance is being established with super-speciality clinicians from other hospitals to provide expert clinical advice.
This Alliance is being established with all hospitals and district health centres in the epidemiological hinterland of NIBMG.
This Alliance will be formed with relevant departments of the universities and institutions. Alliance will also be forged with service-oriented centres, in order to gain access to certain technologies and expertise that may be unavailable in NIBMG.
This alliance will be formed with some major national and international institutions specializing in statistics, computer science or information technology for collaboration in research and training, and also with the industry to provide expert advice and guidance in relevant areas, including clinical trials.
