In addition to signing-out surgical pathology cases and acting as a consultant in GI, liver, and pancreatic pathology, Dr. Bhattacharya enjoys teaching medical students, residents, and fellows in pathology and clinical medicine. Over the years, she has played an integral part in the training of several GI pathology fellows. She also participates in lecture series and grand rounds for clinical faculty members and collaborates on many research projects. Dr. Bhattacharya’s research interests have primarily been clinicopathologic in nature and include the expression of eotaxin-3 in eosinophilic esophagitis; the clinical, epidemiologic, and endoscopic features of sessile serrated adenomas; and the changing patterns of Helicobacter pylori infection. She has published numerous abstracts, peer-reviewed articles, and book chapters. Dr. Bhattacharya joined Miraca Life Sciences in 2009. In addition to daily diagnostic work, she continues to teach and remains actively involved in research, now with the advantage of being able to utilize the vast Miraca Life Sciences research database, conducting ongoing studies in such areas as drug-induced injury in the GI tract and sporadic fundic gland polyps with dysplasia. Dr. Bhattacharya also enjoys meeting with our clinical colleagues.
