    Dr. Bhattacharya is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care at UCSF Medical Center. He attends in Critical Care at Moffitt Hospital and directs a research laboratory at the Mission Bay Campus.

    Research Interests:

    1) Following acute lung injury, monocyte-derived macrophages are recruited to the lung and orchestrate a fibrotic process involving activation and proliferation of fibroblasts. Ongoing studies are exploring the mechanisms of this pro-fibrotic effect of macrophages, with cellular and in vivo models.

    2) Airway Smooth Muscle: Asthma is a disease of dynamic airway narrowing. Our focus is the molecular determinants of airway smooth muscle contraction in the setting of airway inflammation.
