Biplab Dasgupta, PhD, did doctoral research in molecular biology and immunology at Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, Calcutta, and postdoctoral research at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis. Dr. Dasgupta joined Cincinnati Children's in 2009 as a tenure track assistant professor of pediatrics within the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He rose through the ranks and is now a tenured associate professor of pediatrics. Broadly, he is interested in understanding the mechanisms of cancer development and progression. Using various state-of-the-art techniques and brain tumor as a model, his lab examines cancer stem cell metabolism, bioenergetics, signal transduction and the potential link between and cell-intrinsic and cell-extrinsic factors that influence cancer incidence and penetrance.
