Quest for Cures
Charak Clinical Research Center takes its name from the noted Indian physician from the 1st century, Charak, the author of one of the oldest books on medicine, The Charak Samhita. Charak was one of the first medical practitioners to champion the principles that knowledge of all available remedies, and a thorough understanding of the patient, are the critical elements to providing the most appropriate care for each unique individual.
