Current Medicine Research & Practice (CMRP) previously known as The Ganga Ram Journal is being published successfully for the last eleven consecutive years. This has been a source of stimulation for academicians and clinicians from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and other institutions to promote academics and research. It has also helped them to publish their clinical work. We are sure that this will translate into evidence-based clinical practices and improve patient care. Its editorial committee, constituted under the aegis of the Ganga Ram Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (GRIPMER) includes Dr. Samiran Nundy (Emeritus Editor), Dr. Satish Saluja (Editor-in-Chief) and Dr. Atul Kakar (Editor) and has the following members of the Editorial Board and Editorial Working Group.
