Profile of Dr. Debdut Naskar
About Dr. Debdut Naskar
|Dr. Debdut Naskar joined to the Department of Biotechnology as assistant professor in 2018. He received PhD from the Department of Biotechnology, University of Calcutta in 2015 while he conducted his research work under the supervision of Dr Malini Sen at CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, Kolkata. During his PhD he focused on the cellular signaling network contributing to the innate immune functions in macrophage. Then he went to the Department of Immunobiology of University of Arizona, USA as post doctoral researcher under the mentorship of Dr Hsin Jung Joyce Wu and studied the gut microbiota mediated arthritis development in mice model and therapeutic potential of synthetic retinoid molecule in the treatment of arthritis. During the period encompassing both PhD and Post doctoral period, he published several high impact research articles in the journals like Journal of Immunology, PNAS, Cell Host & Microbes etc. Later on he received the prestigious DST Inspire faculty award in 2017 and joined to National Institute of Technology, Rourkela as Inspire faculty where he focused mainly on cellular signaling network that that regulate immune function in intestinal epithelial cells and currently he is continuing that project in this university as principal investigator. His current research interests include Cell signaling in intestinal diseases and three dimensional primary cell culture.
