Faculty Members

  • Prof. Suman Chakraborty (Head of the School) - His research interests include the area of microfluidics, nanofluidics, and CFD. He focuses on nanoscale transport model to agglomerate the science of micro/nanoscale fluid mechanics with the complex biophysics of cells, electrokinetic transport theory of blood through microfluidic conduits.
  • Dr. Koel Chaudhury - Her team is working towards non-invasive/minimally invasive discovery of disease biomarker(s) for the development of next generation diagnostics. Advanced proteomics and metabolomics approach are being used for this purpose. The emphasis is primarily in the areas of women’s health and respiratory health.
  • Dr. Jyotirmoy Chatterjee - The ‘Multi-modal Imaging & Theranostics' is involved in studies on (i) Early detection of Pre-cancer & Cancer (oral and lung) and analytical immuno-histochemistry; (ii) Non-invasive characterization of acute & chronic wounds including diabetic wounds (iii) Utility of honey in healing of varied healing & Non-healing wounds (iv) Development of Honey-natural bio-material scaffolds to translate them as therapeutic patches (Wound/Cancer) and for soft tissue engineering; (v) Basics of EMT in wound healing and metastasis. In all these studies, multi-modal and multi-scale imaging and spectroscopy as well as stat-math analysis are employed and it has developed an interdisciplinary collaborative research team.
  • Dr. Mahitosh Mandal – Dr. Mandal along with a team of oncologist, physicist and engineers are trying to determine the changes of molecular, bio-physical and bio-electrical properties in cancer during the transformation from benign to malignant form as well as acquiring chemo resistance.
  • Dr. Soumen Das - Giving a prior importance to the biomedical sensing research, an interdisciplinary R&D work at SMST has been initiated to promote MEMS and Biosensor activity that encompasses design, fabrication and engineering of biomedical & microfluidic devices for its electro-physiological characterization and development of miniature flexible transducers for healthcare applications.
  • Dr. Analava Mitra – The Natural Products Lab works in the area of phytotherapy, signals (sound) in disease control, bio barriers in noise control, nutritional supplements in malnutrition, diet- disease relationship and evidence based skill mapping and skill enhancement.
  • Dr. Mahadevappa Manjunatha - To develop advanced medical instrumentation and technologies to study the cortical signals at the whole brain - with the goal of translating the work into practical research and clinical use in stroke, incomplete spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, and ALS.
  • Dr. Sangeeta Das Bhattacharya - Research Areas: Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, Public health and epidemiology, Health care delivery for children with chronic medical conditions, Telemedicine and electronic health record, Teaching methods for Evidence Based Medicine and Evidence Based Health Policy, College Mental Health
  • Dr. Santanu Dhara - Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Group has main emphasis on product development research based on fundamental understanding of cell–material interactions and in vivo response.
  • Dr. Chandan Chakraborty - The research work of Bio-Medical Imaging Informatics (BMI) Lab of SMST mainly focuses on the development of medical image processing, statistical data analytics and machine learning algorithms for computer/smartphone assisted disease diagnosis.
  • Dr. Nishant Chakravorty - The Regenerative Medicine lab is utilizing the concepts of cell and molecular biology, biomaterials and tissue engineering to study human pathophysiological condition and attempts to identify therapeutic tools and targets for clinically important conditions.
  • Dr. Gayatri Mukherjee - Dr. Mukherjee’s research areas include Tumor Immunology, development of novel T-cell epitope based immunotherapeutic strategies Regulation and education of the immune system by tissue-resident microbiome. Immune response and immune tolerance: deciphering the molecular determinants.
  • Dr. Praphulla Shukla – Cardiovascular Biology Lab. He is working on regulated necrosis in cardiac and vascular system: Identifying novel proteins and non-coding RNAs controlling regulated necrosis in vascular smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells and cardiac myocytes to gain more understanding of heart failure and regeneration. Ubiquitin proteasome system in cardiovascular pathology: UPS and COP9 signalosome involvement in atherosclerosis, heart failure and cardiac hypertrophy.
