Research Interest

Dr. Bhattacharya investigates the safety and efficacy of intra-arterial delivery of mesenchymal stem cells in small and large animal model of ischemic stroke and related mechanisms of neuroprotection. He brings with himself a vast experience of small and large animal surgical skills with a specialization in double dosing of intra-arterial (intra-carotid) stem cell delivery (dual catheterization) in animal model of ischemic stroke. His research interest also lies with the regulatory RNA mediated mesenchymal stem cell engineering and nanoparticle based drug delivery to the brain. During his doctoral studies he has explored the underlyingmechanism for downregulationof Aquaporin-4 water channel (AQP4)byaNSAID(non-steroidalanti-inflammatorydrug).Dr.Bhattacharya has 26 publications and 01 book chapter. He has delivered several invited research talks and presented research finding in more than 40 scientific conferences. He also serves as the editorial board member in 3 international journals and reviewer of 27 international journals including prestigious Nature group journal.
