Somiranjan Ghosh Research Interest are My current research with environmental chemical-exposed populations, particularly those exposed to organochlorine compounds such as pesticides, also intensifies to an ultimate goal of promoting healthier lives. Through his research, he is striving to create a foundation that will advance the identification and understanding of the role of environment on human health and disease (Gene Environment Interactions, GxE), provide fresh perspectives, and bring new understanding to problems in environmental health through application of innovative knowledge and problem-solving. The goal is: if the chemical's interactions that are related to the obesity epidemic are identified, and removed from products that are the primary contributors to human exposures, there would be the reason to hope that the current trend of increasing obesity and diabetes can be reversed.
