Welcome to PPISR

Poornaprajna Institute of Scientific Research (PPISR), a unit of Admar Mutt Education Foundation (AMEF), is situated near Bengaluru International Airport on a sprawling campus spread over 32 acres. It was conceptualized and founded in 1998 by the then Pontiff of Admar Mutt His Holiness, the late Sri Vibudhesha Theertha Swamiji, who envisioned it to be a serene and congenial environment, where scientists would be inspired to carry out innovative and original research in the fundamental and applied sciences. This is presently enthusiastically carried forward by the present Chairman of AMEF, HH Sri Vishwapriya Theertha Swamiji, to make Poornaprajna Institute of Scientific Research a Centre of Excellence in order the realize the dreams of his Guruji H H Sri Vibudhesha Theertha Swamiji.

The institute is recognized by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Govt. of India, New Delhi and Manipal University, Karnataka, as an R&D centre. PPISR consists of 3 divisions: those of Theoretical Sciences, Materials Science and Biological Sciences, with nine core faculty members, in addition to distinguished professors as adjunct and honorary professors. Since the commencement of our PhD program in 2012, ten of our grad students have obtained their doctoral degree. Our research has to its credit the publication of over 200 papers in reputed peer-reviewed journals and two international patents filed. The combined average impact factor of our publications is 2.26, which is higher than that for several leading institutions in the country.
