Manoj Kumar Pandey is a scientist in the Division of Human Genetics at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Dr. Pandey earned his PhD in the topic “Maternal Immunoregulation and Fetal Survival” from the Department of Medical Genetics, Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, India. He completed his post-doctoral trainings from Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH. Dr. Pandey has presented and published his research outcomes in various national and international sessions and reputed peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals. He is a member of the American Association of Immunology, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the International Society of Complement and the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association. The mainstream of Dr. Pandey’s research is based on the characterization of various immunological cells as well as their effector functions for persuading inflammation in illnesses like immune complex mediated diseases, asthma, cancer, recurrent spontaneous abortion and Gaucher diseases.
