RESEARCH INTERESTS
Dr. Pallab Bhattacharya is serving as an Assistant Professor at NIPER-Ahmedabad. He obtained his PhD degree from Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), Varanasi and further had his post-doctoral training at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine USA under Prof. Dileep Yavagal and Nobel Laureate Prof.Andrew Schally. He was a visiting scientist at Harvard Medical School, Boston and also had an advanced training in stem cell biology at Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA. His present research is to test the safety and efficacy of intra-arterial delivery of mesenchymal stem cells in small and large animal model of ischemic stroke and
dissect related mechanisms of stem cell mediated neuroprotection with its related imaging aspects. Presently, he is collaborating with Nobel laureate Prof.Andrew Schally to explore the role of GHRH in ischemic stroke. He has a vast experience in small and large animal surgical skills with a specialization in double dosing of intra-arterial stem cell delivery in animal model of ischemic stroke. His research interest also includes regulatory RNA mediated mesenchymal stem cell engineering and nanoparticle based targeted drug delivery to the brain and ischemic optic neuropathy. In past, he has been awarded with Early Career Grant by DST, Return Home Grant by ISN, Young Investigator Award by Society for Nano Medicine USA
and Young Neurologist Award by European Neurological Society.
