"Frontier Mediville", India's first Medical Science Park in India, developed by Frontier Lifeline Hospitals & Dr. K.M. Cherian Heart Foundation, has been recognized as the "Knowledge Cluster & Research Hub" of India by academicians and students. This integrated Healthcare Park, spanning 360 acres, is being developed as a one- stop solution for Healthcare, Education, Training, Basic Research and Contract Research Outsourcing activities.
The International Centre for Biomedical Science and Technology at Frontier Mediville was formally inaugurated by Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam in 2004. The Centre offers several academic programs in affiliation with some of the top Universities in India like The Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University, University of Madras and Pondicherry University. It also has collaborations with many International organizations like University of Minnesota, Georgia Tech, University of Washington, Korean Research in Biotechnology, Singapore Cord Blood Bank etc... It undertakes advance research, teaching and applications in the areas of Basic Life Sciences, Allied Health Sciences, Tissue Engineering, Stem Cell Therapy, Biotechnology, Biological Cardiovascular Implants and Nursing.
The centre also offers a large number of career oriented programs, which provide "hands-on" training in Stem Cells, Genetics and Tissue Engineering. The well equipped research laboratories, class rooms, simulation centers and libraries are an excellent platform for students to carry out small research projects and get trained. There are various research projects being conducted at Frontier Mediville, leading to PhD degrees in several disciplines like Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Clinical Pharmacology, and Toxicology.
Talented meritorious and ambitious Std. XII students, Science Degree holders, Senior Researchers and scientists will find these courses to be of immense value. On successful completion, the students will receive recognized Degrees from premier universities with which FLL has affiliations.
The training facility at Frontier Mediville, also called the "Plato's Academy" has around 7000 Cardiac pathology specimens, which have been scientifically preserved and labeled. The Pathology Museum known as the "Noah's Ark" displays a collection of hearts that range from a frog to an elephant, making this the largest Pathology museum in Asia. It also houses a collection of more than 2000 slides of the Heart conduction bundle alone.
This National Medical Science Park will be a hub for Research, Training and Treatment with specific focus on regenerative medicine. This will also be distinctively beneficial for a proposed 1000 bed Multi-specialty Hospital and a 250 bed “Bio-Hospital”; an emerging concept combining present day clinical medicine with regenerative medicine and basic sciences, enhanced with holistic therapy. This unique hospital would provide state-of-the art tertiary care in all sub specialities of medicine supported by modern basic sciences such as Stem Cell technology, Tissue engineering, and Nanotechnology etc.
The Bio-Hospital in Frontier Mediville will be the first of its kind in India and seeks to harness India’s traditional and alternate medicinal technologies such as Ayurveda, Naturopathy, and Siddha.
The Contract Research Organization (CRO) division of Frontier Mediville, GLP Certified, will be a one stop shop for the companies. It will cater to the testing needs of the companies of origin such as Pharmaceuticals, Medical devices, Bio-prosthetics, Botanicals, Biotechnological and Agrochemical industry. The services offered by this centre will be of International standards and will be carried out by highly qualified professionals who have several years of working experience in India, Germany and Netherlands.
