Research & Development

IIT Indore envisages the process of convergence of traditional disciplines as the key to accomplish the previously unimaginable. With this foresight, IIT Indore has been promoting multi-disciplinary research programme, focusing on basic and applied research, technology development and innovation. It is this vision that has helped the institute to do very well in all spheres of science, engineering and humanities and social sciences.


A core competency of IIT Indore is research driven academic programme as it forms a core component of the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. At IIT Indore, we have consciously promulgated the idea of involving undergraduate students in forefront research projects. This led to the initiation of a formal undergraduate research scheme entitled, "Promotion of Research and Innovation for Undergraduate Students".

Research at IIT Indore has been recognized at international level with active participation in several key international projects and several joint collaborations with research organizations in Japan, South Korea, Russian Federation, Portugal, France, Germany, USA, and many other countries. The institute has been successful in securing 82 externally sponsored research projects worth over Rs. 22 Crores.


IIT Indore recognizes that encouraging entrepreneurship for technology development, economic and social stability is need of the hour. The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) at IIT Indore was started with the same vision. IIT Indore students are in the process of having their own start-ups thus applying innovation into practicality for the benefit of all. In the coming years, IIT Indore will develop into a world class centre for higher academic and industrial research and innovation.

Hypertension is a common chronic disorder that leads to stroke, myocardial infarction, renal failure, and congestive heart failure. Genetic approaches have demonstrated that mutation in many genes regulate renal salt reabsorption and causes variation in the blood pressure. The discovery of renal With No Lysine kinase (WNK) offers a new insight into the sodium, potassium, and blood pressure regulations and body fluid homeostasis. It has been found that mutations in WNK lead to Pseudohypoaldosteronism type II (PHAII), also known as Gordons syndrome. Autophosphorylation at Ser382 of activation loop makes WNK1 kinase active. Herein, via molecular dynamics simulations, the effect of phosphorylation on the structure and dynamics of the kinase in the unphosphorylated (uWNK) and phosphorylated (pWNK) complexes with its ligand (WNK463) were studied.
