The QMed Team

From our CEO

In October, we had asked - Will You Be a Catalyst for India's Medical Research Revolution? And you were one among many who became one! By donating, by sending us best wishes or doing both! (In case you missed donating, you still can. Please click the link above)

During the challenge, (Oct 19 - Nov 17) we raised about Rs 4.6 lakhs.
And we got matching donations of approximately Rs 70,000/-.
A huge big THANKS from QMed to you!

As you know we had set a target to raise Rs 15 lakhs. We had planned to utilize Rs 7 Lakhs for MBBS students who will be going for the ICMR STS program, providing them with access to QMedCourses. We wanted to support 12 small institutions with our courses and mentoring. And a similar activity for 15 Systematic Review authors Having raised about Rs 5 lakhs right now, we will start with the ICMR STS project. We plan to write to ICMR and request them to share this message with all students selected for the project.
We have extended the campaign page - till 31st March, 2023 to raise the full 15 Lakhs that we wished to raise. Some of you who could not donate earlier (for good reasons, we know) can still help. And each one of you could spread our message. We hope to show you good results with all that we want to achieve!

From our Social Media Posts - "Useful Article"

  1. Plagiarism is a major issue in scientific research in Asia and it's caused by a variety of factors such as a lack of training in scientific writing, publication pressure and weak regulatory measures.
    To address this problem, researchers need better training in scientific writing and an understanding of different types of plagiarism. Check out the complete article on this topic here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36974397/
