Doctor's Profile

Dr Sajib Kumar Sarkar


Assistant professor, Department of Biochemistry

Reg. Number: DMC-73803


Dr Sajib Kumar Sarkar did his MBBS from Calcutta National Medical College, Kolkata. He then pursued MD (Biochemistry) in Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi followed by Senior Residency in AIIMS, New Delhi. As a keen researcher, he explored different aspects of pesticide induced insulin resistance. He also studied Syzigium cumini seed extract as an insulin sensitizer and the possible molecular mechanism. During his tenure in AIIMS, he investigated the role of nuclear receptors in the pathogenesis of gallbladder cancer and validated few of them as potential therapeutic targets. Experienced with both in vitro and animal models of diseases, he is very keen to continue translational research in cancer biology and uphold personalized medicine in cancer patients. As an academician Dr Sarkar is known to be thoroughly interactive with students. He also has experience of running a clinical biochemistry laboratory with quality.
