The Central Council for Research in Siddha (CCRS) is the apex organization for the Siddha system of medicine's research. Its primary goal is to scientifically validate Siddha claims for global acceptance.

CCRS recently validated the effectiveness of Siddha formulations during the COVID-19 pandemic by conducting Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trials and has published more than 30 quality research articles in peer-reviewed journals.

In contrast, the National Institute of Siddha (NIS) is the apex and premier Institute for the Siddha system of medicine, with a primary mandate for patient care, teaching, and research in higher education for postgraduate and doctoral research scholars.
