At the Indian Medical Congress held in Calcutta in 1894, the editor of British Medical Journal Enest Hart stressed on the need of a special research institute in India, for the investigation into origin, mode of transmission and treatment of tropical diseases. The foundation of an Imperial Laboratory “Central Research Institute” was sanctioned in 1896. The idea took firm ground with establishment of the institute on 3rd May 1905.
