The book is edited by eminent researchers and clinicians with impeccable credentials. The contributors are equally well-known personalities. Their vast experience has been incorporated in preparing this book, targeted toward young scientists and medical teachers, aspiring for a career in basic and clinical research in Biomedical Sciences.

Research requires development of a hypothesis or a research question; it is testing by rigorous contemporary methodologies and dissemination of the results through scientific publications. The authors have attempted to guide aspiring researchers to develop core competencies in the areas of creative and critical thinking, hypothesis / research question generation, ethical and responsible conduct of research, statistical methods to analyze the data, pathways to publication, and the scope for commercialization of research innovations.

The book is divided into different sections each covering an important area like research planning, literature search, study design, and so on. Each section further contains a number of well-written chapters, with an in-depth coverage of different aspects of the subject. The section on 'seeking research funding' will be of great utility, to familiarize readers with the national and international sources of research funding. Similarly, the section on 'research and publication integrity' will guide and inculcate an ethical behavior in the researchers. Except for the section on 'non clinical science research,' which is specifically addressed to researchers in Pharmacology, the contents of the rest of the book are relevant to all areas of biomedical research.

The book will be of immense help to all aspiring researchers in biomedical sciences.
