DR. CHIRANJIT GHOSH
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to my homepage. I am an Assistant Professor (Research) at Manipal Institute of Technology under the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (previously known as Manipal University). It is Regarding myself, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the Satyendra Nath Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata, in 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Manik Pradhan. I am an analytical chemist. My research is focused on sample preparation, mass spectrometry, and clinical chemistry. After completing my Ph.D., I joined Prof. Janusz Pawliszyn's research group at the University of Waterloo, Canada. During my stay in Pawliszyn's group, I worked mainly on developing analytical sample preparation techniques using microsorbents to enrich the breath analysis technology by exploiting solid-phase micro-extraction (SPME) and needle trap (NT) devices. After spending almost 2yrs at the University of Waterloo, I joined as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard in 2020. Here, I am working on the animal model to identify novel volatile biomarkers (exhaled breath) of specific fungal and bacterial infections and examine the dynamics of these metabolites with antibiotic or antifungal therapy.
I have published my research works in 21 international journals, including Nature Publishing groups. In addition, I have filed four patents (3 Indian, 1 USA) with my Ph.D. and postdoc supervisors, and one of the patents has recently been granted.
