Dr. Subhojit Roy
Axonal Transport and Neurodegeneration - Two Potential Examples
Dr. Roy received his M.D. from the R.G. Kar Medical College in Calcutta, India, and his Ph.D. in Cell Biology and Neuroscience from Temple University in Philadelphia. He then completed his residency in anatomic and neuro-pathology at the University of Pennsylvania hospital, in addition to postdoctoral training in neuronal cell-biology and neuropathology at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. In 2008, he joined the University of California at San Diego as assistant professor in pathology and neurosciences. The research group of Dr. Roy focuses on the cell biology of neuronal trafficking and transport, to increase the understanding of neuronal form and function. Furthermore, his lab is studying the cell biology of neurodegeneration, in particular to better understand the precise pathways by which misfolded proteins induce neuronal dysfunction.
