I joined Tata Medical centre, Kolkata in 2013 and work in the service diagnostic laboratory as a consultant pathologist, taking care of the rotuine haematopathology, lymphoma pathology, flow cytometry and Molecular genetics. I along with my team have been involved in developing and implementing flowcytometry based minimal residual disease assays for haematological diseases like ALL and multiple myeloma. I have stong interest in lymphoma pathology and report the lymph nodes/bone marrow aspirates/biopsies.
Under the guidance and vision of Dr Mammen Chandy (Director TMC) I have had the opportunity of successfully setting up affordable diagnostic molecular solutions for haematological and solid tumours using the latest techniques like NGS, digital PCR. Over the last 4-5 years we have successfully established and implemented molecular driven (Ion torrent based tissue genotyping for EGFR; digital PCR based T790M assays, cfDNA based EGFR genotyping, Oncomine comprehensve myeloid assays), standard treatment of care for our patients.
I am involved in running and teaching fellows from the fellowship courses in haematopathology and molecular pathology.
