    Dr. Santaneel Ghosh, Ph. D.

    Group Leader

    Dr.Santaneel Ghosh is currently serving as an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics at Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau, MO. He is also a visiting faculty at the Nanotechnology Research Center, University of Texas at Arlington, TX. He has received his Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arizona, Tucson, in 2005. During doctoral study, he has conducted research on design and development of the lead-free solders for semiconductor industries. During postdoctoral training, he has performed research on multifunctional nanostructure synthesis and characterization for therapeutic applications.

    His research interests are: remotely tunable nanostructure design for targeted delivery and axon-regeneration after nervous system injury, opto-magnetic combination therapy for tumor regression, hydrogel encapsulated quantum dots for single cell imaging, and smart nanostructure design for energy applications. So far, he has published more than 30 articles in reputed journals and international conference proceedings.

    He served as a reviewer for the National Institute of Health (NIH), American Chemical Society (ACS), and many internationally reputed journals. He was the recipient of the following awards:
    (1) “Cottrell College Science Award” for young faculties - Research Corporation for Science Advancement, Tucson, Ariz.;
    (2) “Faculty Research Award,” Southeast Missouri State University, 2010;
    (3) “Tony B. Award,” Association of laboratory Automation, 2010, 2011; and
    (4) Center of Nanoscale Science and Technology-University of Maryland, College Park (CNST-UMD) Scholarship, 2009-2015.

    Siddhartha Mukherjee

    Graduate Assistant

    I am a Graduate student majoring in Environmental Science and my secondary area of research is Nano-Bio engineering and cell biology, I am working in the neuronal circuit genaretion and neurite outgrowth. My research interest includes the study and development of novel Pc-12 cell line ( a model neuronal cell from Adrenbal cortex of Rat ) and control cellular activity using optogenetic stimulation, and the neurite development using optical irradiation (using LED Exposure.) Further, I will be shooting for my P.hD in the same cellular biology field relating to the neuronal cell line.

    Rahul Armani

    Undergradute student

    Biomedical sciences major, with a minor in physics and chemistry. My research focus is in regenerative and systems neuroscience and developing cancer therapeutic models. In addition, I have been involved in ferromagnetic particle synthesis, characterizing modalities of nanotaxterure substrates, and carbon nanotubes. Currently, I am studying GAP 43 expression in neural model cells subject to optical/NGF stimulation in the presence of high functionality nano-textured substrates.
