“Finding a job these days is no walk in the park”.After pursuing MSc in Biochemistry I was struggling to get a job in my field. Thanks to the blooming industry (Clinical research). I realised it was exactly what I was looking for. That’s how Crimson institute comes into picture, which has made it possible for me! When I reflect on my journey in this institute I conclude that the experience not only made me a better individual, but also prepared me in unpredictable ways for my career.I got placed from the institute and currently working as a Junior safety data analyst in Sciformix- A Covance company which is a part of a leading global life sciences company.
Crimson institute offers a blend of learning, amusement and integration of enduring principles. What amazes me is the plethora of extra-curricular activities that the Institute offers hence compelling every student to explore and pursue his/her extra talents. I would like to thank the backbone of this fantastic program, Dr Mary ma’am for her continuous support and guidance. Special thanks to Prema ma’am and Dilip sir for constant motivation.
After completing my post-graduation in 2015 I was working as a faculty in college, but my interest was more into research field where I can explore more. So one fine day one of my friend suggested about clinical research as it’s a new emerging and blooming field in today’s era. But as my background was biotechnology I was having no idea what is clinical research is all about.
So my friend she gave me contact of Dr Mary Francis who is the director of CRIMSON institute. I called her and met her personally where she briefed me about her institute which offers courses in Clinical Research both full time as well as part time. She also guided me about the future aspects of clinical research from industrial point of view. So with confidence I enrolled in PG diploma course in 2017 as full time student. The lectures and study materials of CRIMSON were so specific and I found it very interestingwhich gave us the overall knowledge of Clinical research. The faculties I found very much expertise in their respective fields and apart from lectures they also guide us about how to face challenges and prepare for interview after this course. All I can say they are proving good quality of education.
Apart from theory lectures full time students were also offered 6 months industrial internship where they can get hands on training in industries or institutes which runs clinical trials. So I got selected for 6 months internship program in one of the largest and renowned organisation in May 2017 as CRC (Clinical Research Coordinator).
Mary mam helped me to prepare for the interview sessions through which I got this internship offer. So I am thankful to mam because by doing this internship we were exposed to practical part of clinical research like how to handle different studies and how to conduct a clinical trial etc.
Dr Mary Francis is a good guide, mentor and a inspiration. I want to thanks her for motivating me and guiding throughout the sessions and for encouraging me to enrol in this course.
I completed my graduation in July2017 and the future looked obscure. I tried appearing for interviews one interview hit me the most. It was for a job in a reputed Clinical Research Organisation and the interviewer asked me about GCP, DCGI, and other regulatory bodies. I had no answers to the questions, felt really bad about losing the job and I was very discouraged and disappointed in myself.
When I talked to Dr.Mary Francis for Clinical Research course, she accepted me with positivity and made me realise that there was someone who was ready to groom me. However, I was so discouraged by the last interview that I didn’t believe I could make it in the field of Clinical Research and was hesitant to join the course initially. However, Mary ma’am believed more in me than I did in myself and holding on to that thought, I joined the course.
I was really happy with the teaching and the knowledge I got from the course. The best part of the course was not just the focus on technical knowledge but the personality grooming that is done here. The books are an easy guide to the subjects and the experiences shared by the faculty during lectures add more value. Every student gets personal attention by the faculty and they are very easy to connect when we have doubts.
I not only got a job in Tata Consultancy Service as a Pharmacovigilance trainee but also received appreciation for my knowledge of the regulations and my strong personality.
There is always scope for learning and I am so glad to be Mary mam’s student. I am thankful to her forever and bless her for grooming many students and guiding them in life.
The day when i came in contact with Dr. Mary, I felt so much motivated and positive. I realized that this is the place where i want to improve myself. Now i am seeing myself where i want to be. This institute not only covers the syllabus but also touches soft skills trainings which will not only groom yourself but also helps to enter any industry. Faculties are industry expert and very supportive.
There comes a point where you are clueless what to do next after graduation. And that was my time. I remember meeting Dr. Mary Francis for enquiring about the course in the month of October 2017. The positive vibes which she gave was an indication that I was on the right track. I opted this course and happy with my decision. I did my internship, got hands on training by the experienced mentors. Before joining this course I was timid. Confidence comes through practice and hardwork ,this course helped me to achieve it. Here in crimson, we are exposed to a lot of topics which we ignore in our day to day life like personality development, time management, soft skills, interpersonal relationship. These things helped me a lot of bring out the best in me.
Thanks to Dr. Mary mam & all the faculty members for giving me all the opportunity & that little push which I need to grow. At present I am working as a clinical data manager at Cognizant, Mumbai.
The word Clinical research fascinated me after graduation and so I started enquiring about it everywhere , encountered an fancy institute in Andheri its fees was sky high and the pattern of their studies did not convince me so I dropped the idea and completed masters , wanted a break and didn’t wanted to waste an year so opted for diploma in nutrition and then planned to work but destiny had another plans, got married , conceived a baby and 3 years flew was feeling in the middle of an ocean completely lost ,badly wanted to resume my career . Randomly one day Igoogled again for clinical research courses contacted many institutes but again none bought satisfaction I was pissed , just a last call a last try and there was no looking behind.
It was this institute called crimson had a call chat with a lady Dr. Mary Francis and she sounded very positive which actually attracted me . Just went through crimsons website and I was amazed by her achievements what a strong determination she has hats off !!! We decided to meet the very next day , got the desired guidance and those much needed vibes from her and she was worth the wait and I was finally relaxed this is where I belong and can kick start my career again under her guidance !!!
The way crimson looks at every aspect including personality ,Your body language, Your attitude ,Your behaviour ,Your interpersonal skills is the need of an hour and it’s all enhanced when you are ready to face corporate world.
Knowledge+Grooming super combination she’s giving an fantastic contribution to the society socially and also imparting her knowledge in the right direction by guiding and supporting the youth may god give her all the powers and success to continue her deeds.
Thank you !!

I Divya Patel working as Research Fellow (Non Medical) at Tata memorial Hospital, Parel. I met Dr. Mary in Mid – 2015 to get information related to courses provided by CRIMSON. I had finished my M.sc. Biotechnology in 2011.But i didn’t get pure opportunity to work in my desired field even after 5 years of my struggle. Then i have decided to move on with something which can provide me opportunity to work with corporate world. I was guided by Dr. Mary for this course & finally i had started P.G.Diploma in Clinical research & Management in Feb-2016 & completed in March -2017. The Syllabus of course is so specific to Clinical Research practices & i learnt so many things related to particular. We got good response from Lecturer whenever we had queries related to any subjects or topics. We were also guided for practical approaches after course by Faculties.
I have not only gained knowledge of Clinical Research but learnt so many principles of life by meeting various friends from different streams in my class during the course. I experienced & learned so many things in a single year of my course. I heartily want to thank Dr.Mary as well as other faculty to fulfill us with the knowledge they had & they experienced during their life.
Till 3 yrs back I was not sure what to do with my life, dad had been transferred to Kolkata, I had finished my Masters in Biotechnology didn’t know where my life is heading. It was then I decided to move out of Kolkata, for that I needed a strong reason and CRIMSON was that reason for me.
By this time I had already been introduced to the field of Clinical Research and had done training in the same as well. I decided to take up Clinical Research as my career option. The goal was set the path had to be determined. CRIMSON was that path.
As I look back at the path I feel so proud of myself for having chosen CRIMSON to design my career path and guide me. I will not deny that I had a few apprehensions initially but I had complete trust in the management of the institute. I trusted them that they will always give me the correct opinion and opportunity.
I clearly remember after completing my industrial training there was a point wherein I had an offer from the company where I had done my training but it was a conditional offer, that’s when Dr. Mary guided me towards another opportunity and I trusted them. The opportunity was MASCOT SPINCONTROL.
Once I joined Mascot Spincontrol there was no looking back. I have worked with the company for over 2 years now and my loyalty for the company has just multiplied in this duration, hope the company gives me the opportunity to serve it for many more years to come.
The best thing about CRIMSON is that this is not an institute it’s a family because once you are a part of it then it’s for life. The management does not forget its alumni after placements. The management is there for us always. Having said that I would also insist that one must complete trust and faith in the institute and should be willing to give his/her 100% to the training and studies only then will the bond develop completely.
I came in touch with Crimson through the internet. I met Dr. Mary. Mam They guided me for my career path and today when I look back I don’t regret doing Clinical research. The training imparted at Crimson was "learning by doing". We not only had lectures but also training at a CRO called Mascot spincontrol.
After completion of my course I started working at Mascot Spin control as a Junior Clinical Research Associate, a Job opportunity that I got because of Crimson.
I am very happy with the training provided to me & my job
I thank Dr. Mary Mam for this.
I would like to show my sincere gratitude to Dr. Mary Francis Maa’m & the Lecturers at CRIMSON for providing guidance to me throughout the course. During the course period at CRIMSON practical training for different aspects of Clinical Research was provided in a professional Clinical Research Organization which separates CRIMSON from other institutes. Highlight part of the course for me was that even before completing the course I was placed as CRA at Mascot Spincontrol India Pvt. Ltd. Also I have successfully completed 3 years in Mascot Spincontrol India Pvt. Ltd.

I have completed Advances Post Graduation Diploma in Clinical Research at CRIMSON. The course was very well structured, covering since basics to advanced knowledge about many aspects of clinical research. The overall experience during the Six Months Training period was extremely informative, knowledgeable which not only helped me to understand the operational, technical aspects about researching, but also about working in group.
I have been employed by Mascotspincontrol.India.Pvt.Ltd. From last six month. Because of training period I could effectively fill the role of CRA. The work environment at Mascotspincontrol.India. Pvt.Ltd. is one of flexibility, innovation, team work, and growth. Every day I learn something new that enables me to broaden my knowledge.
Before the course my knowledge in clinical research was like a pile of bricks stacked in a disorderly fashion. My feeling is that the course put good cement between the bricks and formed a solid and larger wall, which represents my current knowledge in this area."
My deepest thanks to Dr.Mary Francis (CEO of CRIMSON) for guiding and correcting me with attention and care.
and also for her extending support and helping nature whenever I needed. My deep sense of gratitude and appreciation to the Institution and faculty members of Mascot Spincontrol India Pvt. Ltd for their support in teaching and building up my performance in training period.
I want to express my deepest gratitude for all of your encouragement and support. Crimson institute provided with me such knowledge and support system that I was able to secure a full-time position before the end of my studies.
Right now I am working in Mascot which is cosmetic CRO here my current position working as CRA. It’s been 2 years I have been working in this company. The senior staff is very helpful and approachable. Company has very pleasant working environment and everyone is very cooperative. It’s been a great experience is to be a part of this company.
I had a very good experience with ICTCR. What I liked about the institution is that the management panel did not advertise the institute; they did not say ‘join us & you’ll get so & so salary’ instead they advised us to stay with one company, get some experience and the money will flow in’. I also had a wonderful opportunity to make new friends.
I gained good experience and knowledge during the training. The course gave us good insight in Clinical Research. Initially I was unaware about Clinical Research, but at the end of the course. I can say that I know quite a bit of Clinical Research. I am thankful to the Institution for enriching my knowledge
Learning at ICTCR was a great experience. We actually came to know about basics of Clinical Research. Working in CROs i.e., training gave us the practical knowledge of Pharma industry. I sincerely thank ICTCR for conducting such a wonderful course.
Due to this course, I got a new experience, which would be very helpful to me in my future life. As this course gives practical training along with lectures, I would like to suggest, that this is one of the best institutes for this course.
