Dr. Bhattacharya investigates the safety and efficacy of intra-arterial stem cell therapy in small and large animal model of ischemic stroke and further deciphering the mechanisms of neuroprotection. He has
a vast experience in small and large animal surgical skills with a specialization in intra-arterial (intra-carotid) delivery of stem cells in ischemic stroke.He had an advanced training in stem cell biology from Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole,
Massachusetts and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),USA. He has experience in mouse transgenesis and has acquired technical skills necessary to establish transgenic animals( Pronuclear injection, 2 cell injection, blastocyst injection, electroporation
of zygotes and embryonic stem cell culture including transfection, selection, cloning and analysis of embryonic stem cell clones) with a latest updates on genome engineering technologies involving CRISPR/Cas9. Dr.Bhattacharya is also a member of the International
Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT). Presently, he is working with Nobel Laureate Prof.Andrew Schally on the aspects of neuroendocrine regulation in ischemic stroke. He is pursuing collaborative research projects with Harvard Medical School, USA,Miller
School of Medicine, USA, INSERM,France and Rutgers,USA which includes stroke induced optic neuropathy,strategies for mitochondria protection and exploring the cross talk of mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum in stroke. His research interest also lies with
the regulatory RNA mediated mesenchymal stem cell engineering and nanoparticle based targeted drug delivery to the brain.During his doctoral studies he explored the underlying mechanism for down-regulation of Aquaporin-4(AQP4) water channel by NSAID (non-steroidal
