    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Bhattacharya is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care at UCSF Medical Center. He completed baccalaureate and medical degrees at Harvard University and an internship and residency on the Osler medical service at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He then went on to complete a clinical fellowship in pulmonary and critical care at UCSF, followed by research training in the laboratory of Dr. Dean Sheppard at the UCSF Lung Biology Center. He joined the faculty in 2012.

    Research Interests
    1) Airway Smooth Muscle: Asthma is a disease of dynamic airway narrowing. My laboratory studies the molecular determinants of airway smooth muscle contraction, ranging from specific contractile pathways to regulation of gene transcription in the setting of airway inflammation. Through this work, I hope to identify new targets for treatment of asthma.

    2) Acute lung injury: The endothelium maintains barrier integrity of the lung vasculature. My laboratory seeks to understand the mechanisms governing disruption of this barrier during acute lung injury in order to spur discovery of novel pathways for treatment of lung edema.
