Mentor: Dr. Thomas Michel

Apabrita A Das obtained his Bachelor of Science in 2009 from Visva-Bharati, Shantiniketan, India in Zoology. He completed his MSc in Zoology from Banaras Hindu University with a specialization in Molecular and Human Genetics. In 2021, he received his PhD in Biophysics, Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics from CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology under the affiliation of University of Calcutta. His dissertation work focused on the role of platelet proteins in the regulation of atherosclerosis and identification of novel disease associated proteins in coronary artery disease. In his thesis work, Apabrita employed quantitative and qualitative proteomic approaches, using data-independent acquisition mass spectrometry performed on an Orbitrap, and coupled these findings with those from histopathological and biochemical analyses. Under the mentorship of Prof. Thomas Michel at Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Apabrita will use multi-omics strategies and chemo genetic models of mice to understand the role of ROS in different diseases.
