About Central Research Institute

The Central Research Institute (CRI) was originally named Pasteur Institute of India. It was established at Kasauli in the year 1904 under its first director Sir David Semple. Since its inception, this Premier National Institute has been working efficiently. The institute works in the fields of immunology ( a branch of biomedical science covering the science of immune systems in all organisms) and virology ( the study of viruses). It is located near Mall Road, just behind the Major Dhyanchand Chowk. All medical job vacancies produced all over India come to this place for test and certification. Anti-Rabies inoculation was invented in this institute, and it also manufactures anti-snake bites vaccinations. So it wouldn’t be wrong to say that this 105-year-old institute has played a crucial role in saving many lives that could have potentially been lost to severe diseases. A visit to the Central Research Institute will prove as an educational trip to kids who are vying for Biology as their careers, so they understand the intricacies and standards involved in the exams they will appear in. The sprawling and clean premise is heavily guarded. This is a highly restricted Institute, so the entry for visitors is not accessible from inside unless you got a special pass. A heritage market selling goods at reasonable prices is located nearby.
