    Collapse overview
    Dr Ghosh completed his Graduate Studies from Calcutta University, India, before he joins National Cancer Institute/NIH, Bethesda, where he completed his postdoctoral research. I moved to Howard University, Washington DC, and started working at Biology Department, with an additional position of Assistant Professor at the in the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, College of Medicine at Howard University. He is an exposure biologist/scientist with more than 20 years working experience in Academics. As evidence of my accomplishments, I hold 1 patent, and I published 35+ research papers in peer-reviewed journals, with numerous national and international presentations. I am also an in the Editorial Board of 16 Journals. I am also the also the Lead PI of a recently funded NIGMS-RCMI RO1 and NCI P-20 projects to advance the identification and understanding of the role of Type 2 Diabetes in African American population of USA determining the their health and disease (Gene Environment Interactions, GxE), provide fresh perspectives, and bring new understanding to problems in environmental health through application of innovative knowledge and problem-solving technologies.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
