Started in the year 2004, St. John's Research Institute was created for the purpose of promotion of research within the academy, as well as teaching of research disciplines. The institute works towards increasing the capacity for research in collaboration with the other institutes in the academy. It tries to achieve this target by facilitating its own staff, as well as staff and students of the academy in terms of planning research, fund raising, legal and statistical management, the generation of reports and peer reviewed publications, and in general, in education and program building. The strategy is to identify and sustain leaders in thrust areas of research, together with strong teams, and to develop infrastructure to support these thrust areas of research, as well as to develop a plan to start formal training courses.
