DR. CHIRANJIT GHOSH
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to my homepage. I obtained my Ph.D. in chemistry from the Satyendra Nath Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, India (An Autonomous Research Institute under the Government of India) in 2018, under the supervision of Dr. Manik Pradhan. My thesis was focused on the development of non-invasive methods from human breath analysis to screen biomedical diseases like diabetes, Helicobacter pylori infection etc. I have 19 publications in international journals, including Nature Publishing group. I have filed four patents (3 Indian, 1 USA) during my Ph.D. In 2018, I joined as a postdoctorate researcher in the analytical chemistry of Professor Janusz Pawliszyn's Research Group at the University of Waterloo, Canada. During my stay in Pawliszyn's group, my research works mainly focused on the development of breath analysis methods exploiting solid-phase micro-extraction (SPME) and needle trap (NT) technology for real-time analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in breath for evaluation of human health and a variety of disease states. After spending almost 2yrs in the University of Waterloo, I joined as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School/BWH 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.
