Transcriptional Profiling for Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Discovery – Massachusetts General Hospital’s Roby Bhattacharyya, MD, PhD
We are pleased to welcome Massachusetts General Hospital’s Roby Bhattacharyya, MD, PhD, to present for our May 25th Levy CIMAR Science Lunch, our last seminar of the ’22-’23 season! Dr. Bhattacharyya is an Assistant Professor in the Infectious Diseases Division at MGH as well as an Associate Member of the Broad Institute and an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School. He will present on “Transcriptional Profiling for Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Discovery” at 12 noon both in-person and via Zoom.
Dr. Bhattacharyya maintains a lab at the Broad where he and his team pursue basic and translational research on pathogenic microbes, with a particular focus on antimicrobial resistance and transcriptional responses to antibiotic exposure, and on characterizing their impact on infected patients, including the immune responses elicited upon systemic infection such as sepsis or COVID-19.
