Since July 1, 2011, Dr. Ghosh has been serving as an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at UCR. His research group integrates the multidisciplinary principles and techniques related to vascular physiology, mechanobiology, nanomaterials, and bioengineering to understand and treat chronic vascular inflammation associated with diabetes.Over the past four years, Dr. Ghosh‟s novel research findings have been published invarious world-renownedscientific journals including the Journal of Clinical Investigation (JCI). His research, which has important clinical implications, has also led to an invention disclosure and a patent application.

Dr Ghosh is alsoa highly committed mentor to eightgraduate and undergraduate students in his research group, with whom he interactson a daily basis and during weekly group meetings. The research performed by his graduate students have resulted in „Best Presentation‟ awards at the Annual Meeting of AAAS Pacific Division, several poster presentations at national conferences, and peer-reviewedresearch publications. Further, undergraduates in his lab have received numerous fellowships such as the prestigious UCR Chancellor Research Fellowship, the Bilderback Endowed Bioengineering Scholarship, and the HSI Undergraduate Research Fellowship.

Further, Dr Ghosh has contributed significantly to the UCR Bioengineering curriculum by creating and teaching both undergraduate (three) and graduate-level (two) courses. His passion for teaching and subject knowledge are greatly appreciated by students, who consistently rate him among the top instructors within both the department and the university.

Dr Ghosh has also been working with the Riverside County Office of Education (RCOE) on various outreach activities, including one-on-one consultations with high school students as well as their parents and teachers.
