About Dr. Subrata Kumar Dey

Prof. Subrata Kumar Dey received his Ph.D in Zoology from University of Kalyani. He joined as an Assistant Professor & Reader of West Bengal Education Service (WBES) (1980-2005). He joined as a Reader in Presidency College (1996-2005) and as a Professor in WBUT (2005-continuing). Prof. Subrata Kumar Dey has been working in the field of Human genetics and radiation biology for past 10 years .At present he is working on the genetics of Down syndrome patients and Heavy ion induced genomic instability in mammalian cells. He has also undertaken sequencing of a gene responsible for Atrioventricular Septal Defects in Down syndrome. Research is also being carried out on APOE gene polymorphism in Alzheimer’s patients and to develop specific molecular markers for monitoring onset and remission of Acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He works with a team of four scholars. He has published more than 40 research papers & three students received Ph.D under his supervision.
