Chandan Guha, MBBS, PhD is Professor of Radiation Oncology and Pathology, Vice Chairman and the Director of Translational Research of the department of Radiation Oncology at Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY.
His laboratory is investigating the effects of irradiation on normal tissue and stem cells. His group discovered that hepatic irradiation could be used as a preparative regimen for liver cell transplantation to promote repopulation of stem cells and adult hepatocytes in host liver. He has developed strategies for stem cell-based therapies to mitigate and treat radiation injury and to induce regeneration of irradiated organs, such as, liver, intestine and lung.
He is currently the Director of the RadStem Center for Medical Countermeasures against Radiation and is the Founding Director of the Einstein Institute of Oncophysics.
Dr. Guha is funded by multiple grants from the National Institute of Health and has collaborations with several Industrial partners to develop novel applications of radiation and ultrasound for tumor immunotherapy and regenerative medicine.
