Shouryadipta Ghosh completed his PhD from the Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2019. He examined changes in the organization of mitochondria within cells of hearts affected by diabetes. He showed that the spatial arrangement of mitochondria affects the energy distribution within the heart cells and thus the force of a heartbeat. His findings opened new avenues for therapies targeting mitochondria in diabetes-induced heart diseases.
He obtained a Bachelor of Technology (Hons.) degree from IIT Bhubaneswar. He also visited the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth as a visiting research student during the undergraduate degree. He has multiple research publications spanning across areas like System Biology, Cardiac Physiology, Biomaterials, and Solid Mechanics. Besides research, he enjoys teaching, developing VR/AR games and hiking with friends.
