Dr. Tandrika Chattopadhyay
Associate Principal Research Scientist, CIMPS

Dr. Tandrika Chattopadhyay did her Bachelor’s and Master’s from University of Delhi in the field of Bio-Chemistry. Following this, she received her PhD in Molecular Physiology from National Institute of Immunology in 2013. Subsequently, Dr. Tandrika pursued her Post-doctoral work at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai (2015-19) and IISER, Pune (2019-22), eventually joining Center for Innovation in Molecular and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CIMPS), Dr. Reddy’s Institute of Life Sciences, as Associate Principal Research Scientist in May-2022.

Dr. Tandrika’s research interests include understanding the impact of nutrition (both macro- and micro-nutrients) on Hepatic physiology, metabolic inflammation and development of liver pathologies such as fatty liver disease and steatosis. Her research also aims to define cellular mechanisms elucidating the role of Vitamin D in maintaining organismal homeostasis. Her experimental paradigms encompass both cell-based assays and the creation of mouse disease models for pre-clinical research. She uses cellular, molecular, and genetic techniques to investigate signaling and gene expression alterations in the aforementioned disease models. In addition, Dr. Tandrika is also a part of ARUMDA network, which involves esteemed institutes such as TIFR, CMC, NII and IIT as a part of collaborative effort to understand mechanisms of malnutrition in pregnant females and early life development.
