The Institute of Liver & Biliary Sciences (ILBS) has been established by the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi as an autonomous institute, under the Societies act.
The mission of ILBS is to become a dedicated international centre of excellence for the diagnosis, management and advanced training and research in the field of liver and biliary diseases.
The first phase of ILBS is already functional having 180 hospital beds, 74 of which cater as intensive care (ICU) beds.
The second phase of ILBS, likely to be operational by early 2012, will add a dedicated multi-storie research complex, auditorium, guest-house, hepato-biliary oncology unit, additional beds and residential accommodation.
Anesthesia & Critical Care
ILBS library provides comprehensive resources and services to support the academic, research and learning need of the institute. It has a collection of more than 1000 resources which includes books, bound volumes of journals, theses and audio visuals (CD/DVDs). It also subscribes current full text journals (online and/or print) to keep abreast users with the latest trends in the field of various disciplines and speciality. The library is also a member of ERMED Consortium, nationwide electronic information resources in the field of medicine, coordinated through National Medical Library, DGHS, Govt. of India. It also has facility of statistical analysis tool/software for users. The library is managed by a team of duly qualified library professionals and is headed by faculty in-charge. Feedback from users is always appreciated.
The Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences is unique in nurturing a vibrant research culture in a clinical setting to ridge the gap between the bench and bedside. To fully understand the diseases that affect the “hepato-pancreato-billiary highway” it is imperative to have cutting edge technologies established at the institute in order to test hypothesis and implement ideas in a multi-disciplinary format. In this regard a major thrust areas of the department includes Genomics and Transcriptomics, Molecular Virology,Molecular Immunology, Cancer Cell Biology, Haematopietic Cell Biology and regenerative Medicine. To accelerate in these areas the department has also established a core “ILBS-NIH laboratory of Molecular Immunology” and established small animal house facility. Department is also setting up the state of the art core facilities and Tissue bank which would serve as a nodal research center in the country. The research is funded solely by extramural grants from various national and international funding agencies. The department has also set up several international tie ups with or without funding from govt. agencies. A multidisciplinary approach is being used to address various pressing needs in the area of liver disease progression and these include: molecular immunology, identification of microRNAs by Next Generation sequencing, role of gut metagenome in gut-liver axis, proteomic and meatbolomic approaches to identify biomarkers in acute on chronic liver failure, animal models of cirrhosis and acute liver failures, role of tissue microenvironment in liver regeneration and mechanistic roles of liver degeneration such as apoptosis and cellular senescence
