Research is the main key method of the advancement of medical field.  It is a continuous process and it gives the new and best method/way of new treatment/way of medication in the medical field.  It is an important and essential education method in the medical education curriculum in India.  Not only in India, doing research and submission it in a proper way or method is a mandatory procedure in the medical education process in worldwide medical education.  Anybody wants to prove their finding in medical or any other field then; they will do some research with proper permission and procedure and submit their finding using by biostatistical tools and applications and to prove scientifically in a proper way.  Research is very much useful to find the consequences, and other information about Covid-19 pandemic to doctors/scientist/health care providers’/policy makers/State and Central Governments to take necessary precautionary measures.  Biostatistics means the application of statistical tools to scientific research in health care related areas like medicine, biology, and public health.  From research only, one can prove or develop a new method or tools or procedure to a new area/field by using biostatistical tools or methods. Research and applications of biostatistical tools are interrelated with each other.  Without using of biostatistical tools, no one has to prove their findings are scientifically.  So, it is the back bone of any kind research/study.  These two things are very important in our Indian medical education/curriculum and other foreign countries also.  So in this short communication, I have to discuss about the needs and importance of research and biostatistics concepts and its applications in the under graduate and post graduate medical education.
