Dr. Arunava Ghosh, Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Marsico Lung Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in research and medicine.
With research and publication of pulmonary health effects of tobacco use on humans, Dr. Ghosh is an emerging leader in the medical field. Having grown up in India, he saw firsthand how tobacco use affects the person and the entire family. When he came to the United States, he made it his goal to have his research impact laws that would subsequently carry over into developing countries. He has had the opportunity to work in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on the effects of new and emerging tobacco products. He has recently published two papers on the pulmonary effects of little cigar use and is currently working on impacts of vaping. A postdoctoral research associate for the Robert Tarran Laboratory since 2013, Dr. Ghosh previously worked as a research fellow for the Center for Research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at the University of Calcutta, a senior research fellow for the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, a senior research fellow for the Indian Council of Medical Research, and a project fellow for the National Tea Research Foundation.
Dr. Ghosh’s research has been published in prominent publications including the Journal of Inflammation, the Journal of Bioscience, the American Journal of Respiratory Cell Molecular Biology, the American Journal of Physiology of Lung Cell Molecular Physiology, Science Reports, and Toxicology. His most recent articles have included, “Cigarette Smoke the Killer: Vitamin C the Healer Science and Culture,” “p-Benzoquinone-induced aggregation and perturbation of structure and chaperone function of alpha-crystallin is a causative factor of cigarette smoke-related cataractogenesis,” “Little Cigars are More Toxic than Cigarettes and Uniquely Change the Airway Gene and Protein Expression,” “Flavored little cigar smoke induces cytotoxicity and apoptosis in airway epithelia,” “Tobacco Smoke Constituents Trigger Cytoplasmic Calcium Release,” “Biomarkers of Exposure to New and Emerging Tobacco and Nicotine Delivery Products,” and “Interaction of p-benzoquinone with hemoglobin in smokers blood causes alteration of structure and loss of oxygen binding capacity.”
Dr. Ghosh began his career at the University of Calcutta in Kolkata, India, earning a Bachelor of Science in 2001, a Master of Science in 2004 and a PhD in 2013. In recognition of his professional excellence, he was the recipient of the Lectureship for Responsible Conduct for Research from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and two lectureships in life sciences and environmental sciences from the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research from the University Grants Commission. Looking to the future, Dr. Ghosh intends to continue working in his field to achieve his goal of making a global impact and change on the tobacco industry through his healthcare findings.
