Pradipta GhoshPradipta's postdoctoral work has established the existence of a novel class of signaling molecules, which she christened as "molecular rheostats" and unraveled a hitherto unknown stratum in post-receptor signal transduction. Based on these discoveries, Pradipta has received awards from the American Gastroenterology Association, Burroughs Wellcome Fund, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and the National Institute of Health that currently fund her lab's robust research program on cell signaling.

The Ghosh Lab is busy identifying and characterizing novel interfaces within key signaling cascades which serve as “Signal-Amplification-Switches”. The primary function of these switches is “UNRESTRICTED AMPLIFICATION” of signaling cascades, rendering them capable of driving the efficiency of diverse cellular processes beyond physiologic needs (secretion, renewal & healing) and thereby, initiate and promote pathologic processes such as tumor growth, metastasis and fibrogenesis.
