Soma Sengupta MD, PhD

Dr. Sengupta is an physician-scientist with a strong interest in treating patients, primarily adults, and participating in clinical trials. On the other hand, she is a committed "bench scientist" engaged in research that we hope will be translated speedily into the clinic. She has had a long-standing interest in membrane proteins and have worked on various channels, pumps, and transporters during my research career. Dr. Sengupta received early training in chemistry/biochemistry and conducted doctoral research at the University of Cambridge (U.K.) and the CNRS in Strasbourg, France; then post-doctoral training at Yale University. She completed MBBChir training (equivalent to an MD) at the University of Cambridge and received Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP). She completed an internal medicine internship at Johns Hopkins, residency in neurology at BIDMC-Harvard, and a fellowship in neuro-oncology at Mass General and Dana-Farber.
