King Institute of Preventive Medicine And Research - KIPMR

The King Institute of Preventive Medicine started functioning originally as a vaccine Lymph Depot for the manufacture and supply of Smallpox Vaccine to the State of Madras. It is named after Lt. Col. W. G. KING. I.M.S., the then Sanitary Commissioner to the Government of Madras. He brought the Institute into existence on 07-11-1899. Thus was sown the seed out of which has grown the King Institute of Preventive Medicine as one now sees. Later the bacteriological laboratory and the serum section were added in 1903. During the same year the examination of water from moffusil was also started for bacteriological and chemical qualities. The main building of the Institute was opened by the then Governor and future Vice Roy, His Excellency Lord Ampthill on 11th March, 1905. During the First World War new buildings were added to the Institute. A separate Public Health Section was established in 1923 for testing water samples and it was placed under the control of a Chief Water Analyst. In 1924 the Public Analyst Department was established for the analysis of food under Madras Prevention and Adulteration Act. This later developed as a Government Analyst Department for the examination of Food and Common Drugs. In 1959 Government Analyst and Water Analyst Department were transferred to the Public Health Department from the Medical Department whereby they ceased to be under the control of the Director, King Institute of Preventive Medicine, Guindy, but the service facilities to these Departments are still being provided by this Institute.
