Dr. Ganguly is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) and a physician-scientist at the Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Research (CPNR). Dr. Ganguly is pursuing thematic and innovative research projects exploring the factors affecting the health and disease of newborns, starting before and during pregnancy and continuing well after birth to address important questions regarding fetal origins of juvenile and adult diseases.

Clinical/Research Interests:

The overall goal of the Ganguly lab is to explore the redox regulation of disordered lung development and its effect on neonatal health and disease. As part of a multidisciplinary and diverse group of scientists at the Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Research (CPNR), Dr. Ganguly and his laboratory is invested in developing  a basic understanding of how different components of the preterm developing lung interact with each other and with the surrounding environment under the various conditions of neonatal health and disease. His lab strives to promote scientific rigor, team science, and adopting new techniques to increase the resolution for dissecting differences on a cellular, transcriptional, proteomic, and epigenetic level and have a dramatic impact on the understanding of redox plasticity and regulation in the developing lung. He has a keen interest in understanding how interventions such as supplemental oxygen and different types of ventilation affect preterm lungs to cause pulmonary morbidities such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), asthma, and airway hyperreactivity. The current project in the lab is engaged in advancing the knowledge of sulfide signaling in the developing lung to uncover novel redox targets for future therapies for hyperoxia-induced BPD and long-term airway remodelling.
