Sidhartha D. Ray
Sidhartha D. Ray is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the School of Pharmacy, Manchester University College of Pharmacy located in the Parkview Medical Center, Fort Wayne, Indiana. Research in his laboratory encompasses several major areas: (i) drug and chemical-induced mechanisms of cell injury and cell death in multiple vital target organs in vivo, (ii) signaling mechanisms and molecular pathways of apoptotic and necrotic cell death, and (iii) unraveling mechanisms and exploring antitoxic and anticarcinogenic potentials of phytochemicals (natural and man-made antioxidants). Specific mechanistic pathways that orchestrate cell injury and cell death (e.g., oxidative stress, DNA damage/repair pathways, cell cycle regulatory elements, intracellular redox states, ARE, and Nrf regulation) are the primary focus of his investigations. Dr. Ray's group executes hypothesis-testing experiments at the in vivo organ level, cellular level, subcellular level, molecular level, and the genomic level (gene expression) prior to resolving a big puzzle. Dr. Ray has held the two possible highest academic honors at his institution: Biennial Abraham Krasnoff Memorial Award for Lifetime Scholarly Achievement (awarded once every 4 years; university-wide), and David Newton award for Excellence in Teaching Pharmacy. He served as an elected Member to the Education Committee of the Society of Toxicology, UG Toxicology Task force, Society of Toxicology's UG initiatives (curricular), SFRBM's Senior Awards Committee, and AACP's Volwiler Awards Committee. He is serving as the SOT's liaison to NIH-NLM Toxlearn project. His published work has received thousands of peer citations (visit Google scholar and Scopus).
