As a special research initiative of SRMIST, SRM Research Institute (SRMRI) came into existence in January 2012 to realize a great vision of the President, Prof. P. Sathyanarayanan. The idea was to establish a state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and co-disciplinary research hub in a dynamic, competitive and vibrant environment. Since its inception, SRMRI remains fully committed to pursuing in-depth research and development so as to excel in major areas of science and technology, spanning from biotechnology to nanotechnology, from composite materials to green chemistry, from drug delivery to exploration of sustainable energy and so on.. In the last couple of years, a total of 488 papers have been published in highly reputed journals with an average impact factor of 3.55. Innovative research works as carried out at SRMRI have yielded publications in top-notch journals such as Account of Chemical Research, Nature Communications, Nano Energy, Advance Functional Materials, ACS Catalysis, Particle and Fiber Toxicology, ACS Applied Materials & Interface, Scientific Reports, Nanoscale, Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Journal of Physical; Chemistry C, Environmental Science & Technology, Analytical Chemistry, Journal of Power Sources, Acta Biomaterialia, Acta Materialia, etc. Sixteen patents have been filed by the faculty members of the Research institute during the years 2015-2016. Fifty seven Research Projects with a total outlay of Rs. 46.84 crore were sanctioned to the faculty members of the Institute by various funding agencies: DST-SERB, DST Nano Mission, DBT, ICMR, DRDO, MNRE, MoES and Industries.
