JNCASR only Indian institute in Nature’s ‘Top 10’


Bengaluru: The Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) has turn out to be the one Indian institute to make it to the 2019 Nature Index Annual Tables, brought out via Nature. It has been ranked 7th among the best ten international record of educational institutions in 2019.

This is a new rating of the top ten clinical institutions produced via the celebrated clinical publisher—Nature—which prior to now had been dominated via large universities with huge budgets and manpower sources.


Nature has now ‘normalised’ the rankings, because of this that it took into consideration the standard of labor taking place at institutes and no longer essentially their size and manpower.

“It is fantastic. As an fulfillment this is one thing out of the odd for the clinical neighborhood in India,” Prof Ashutosh Sharma, secretary, Department of Science & Technology, advised TOI.

"I’ve always believed and said that our scientists can do globally competitive research by their intellect, commitment,dedication and passion. Here we see an excellent example of that, which should be an inspiration to all our scientists and scientific institutions," advised TOI.

In a social media submit, he mentioned that in research rankings, some things rely on the size (or weight) of the institutions, and others on the high quality of research. It’s pleasant that JNCASR is located on the 7th spot.It's great to peer the institute in the league of institutions reminiscent of Princeton, Weizmann Institute of Advanced Studies, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

“...Established just 30 years ago, JNCASR is considerably more youthful and smaller than most of the institutions in the Nature Index Annual Tables. But this point of distinction, at the side of its location in the ‘Silicon Valley of India’, has turn out to be its power, facilitating the types of collaborations that come from close quarters and a fresh solution to interdisciplinary research,” Nature noted.


Prof CNR Rao, honorary president and Linus Pauling Research Professor at JNCASR mentioned that the institute used to be in “superb corporate”, which is a tremendous encouragement to do even higher.


Prof KS Narayan, President-in-charge of JNCASR, mentioned: “This popularity is a reflection of the sustained exciting research activities at JNCASR over the previous couple of many years.”


Of the remaining nine institutions, five are from the US, and one each from Austria, Israel, Japan and Switzerland. The best rank used to be given to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, US and the closing rank (10) went to Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (Japan).
