Developments in high throughput technologies are revolutionizing medical research. With applications in both communicable and non communicable diseases, these technologies have potential for translating research to clinical practice. Although high throughput technologies have been used worldwide for medical research, these are not being used as widely in India. One of the biggest hurdles in use and analyses of high throughput technologies for medical research in India is limited training of clinicians in such technologies and minimal interaction between clinicians and translational researchers.
