Chulabhorn Research Institute (CRI), founded by Professor Dr. Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol in 1987, has achieved a worldwide reputation as a research center with the very highest standards. CRI has a staff of highly qualified scientists who conduct research in nine main laboratories working with the most up to date equipment. There is an ongoing program of exchange visits with internationally renowned scientists from countries throughout the world who conduct joint research projects with CRI staff. CRI has established linkages with many leading research institutes in other countries, and for a number of years. CRI has initiated and carried out research of the very highest international standard, particularly in the areas of applied biological science, chemical biology, and environmental toxicology.

CRI fully realizes the importance of expanding its cadre of highly qualified scientists, who have an essential role to play in the development of Thailand, to ensure that the nation can compete at the highest international levels. Thus the Chulabhorn Graduate Institute (CGI) was established in 2005, on the 48th birthday anniversary of Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn, to pursue goals of excellence in the education and training of scientists at the level needed to ensure continuing and sustainable national development.
