Sudipta Ghosh

Post-doctoral fellow


I am interested in RNA biology. My current research is focused to understand/identify the molecular regulator(s) of some newly discovered RNA modifying enzymes. Using genome-wide screening, I am hoping to identify key regulators of these RNA methyltransferases which can help us to understand the biology of gene regulation and pave the way for drug discovery in cancer research. 


I received my Ph.D. in Biotechnology from IIT Guwahati, India. Then I moved to IISER Bhopal, India for postdoctoral research (bacterial SRP RNA) where I continued my interest in RNA-protein interactions with my independent grant for young scientists from SERB, Govt. of India. After concluding the independent grant, I accepted the opportunity to work on RNA splicing at the University of Leicester, UK which motivated me to learn and investigate RNA (a fascinating area of science) on a deeper level.  I then joined Prof Shi's lab to explore the field of RNA modification and connect some dots of RNA splicing in gene regulation.

In my spare time, I enjoy painting, good food and cooking for friends and family.
