Director
Professor Subrata Sinha assumed charge as Director, National Brain Research Centre, Manesar in June 2010.
Professor Sinha has been working on the molecular and cell biology of glial tumours and has made several important contributions in understanding of this fatal brain disease. His research contributions include understanding the molecular biology of glial tumor progression, studying genomic instabilities that may contribute to alterations in tumor phenotype which in turn may confer drug resistance; study of cellular responses to stress including hypoxia, transcriptional gene silencing and its implications in tumor biology and therapeutics. He is also working on the development of recombinant antibody methods for potential use in oncotherapeutics.
Decorated by several research felicitations at national and international levels, Prof. Sinha's research contributions have been well respected in the field. Early in his career, Prof. Sinha graduated from India's premier institution, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) at New Delhi. He was awarded MBBS (1980) and MD Biochemistry (1983) from AIIMS and PhD (1989) from the MRC Toxicology Unit, Carshalton UK. Prof. Sinha was an ICMR Talent Search Scheme Fellow at the Department of Biochemistry, AIIMS (1984) and at National Institute of Immunology (1987-1988). He was a Smith and Nephew fellow (1984 – 1985) and Non-Clinical Scientist (1985-1986) at the MRC Toxicology Unit, Carshalton, UK. He joined the faculty of the Department of Biochemistry at AIIMS in 1988, was appointed as Professor since 1998 and Head of Department from 2003 to 2010.
