The Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) is in talks with the UT administration for allotting more land to the health institute for OPDs and other departments, PGIMER director YK Chawla said at a function organised on Independence Day. Chawla also said the institute was making efforts to introduce lungs, pancreas and intestine transplant procedures. The PGIMER director said the institute was in negotiations with the UT administration to allot space for a screening OPD and centres for advanced neurology, physical medicine, cancer and geriatrics. He said that in the past six months, Rs. 7 crore had been sanctioned for research projects undertaken by the institute faculty.
