Dr. Arindam Banerjee is an experienced postdoctoral researcher within the Faculty of Medicine at University of Southampton. His current research interest focussed on altered cancer metabolism and how does it impact on therapeutic resistance and disease relapse in breast cancer. At Southampton he is pursuing this research with Dr. Blaydes in the Cancer Cell Stress Response group.

Dr. Banerjee previously held a position of research associate (2012-2013) and research fellow (2013-2015) respectively at Cancer Science Institute of Singapore, National University of Singapore, Singapore. There, he investigated how acquired resistance and altered metabolism converges to promote stem ness in breast cancer.

Prior to this, Dr. Banerjee completed his PhD in molecular medicine from the Liggins Institute, University of Auckland, New Zealand. His extensive PhD research works with Professor Peter Lobie illustrating the the oncogenic role of Artemin in estrogen receptor negative breast cancer resulted in several first author publications in peer reviewed journals.

Research interests

The long term interest for Dr. Banerjee’s research is to understand the basics of cancer stem cells metabolism in breast and other cancers. In general cancer stem cells (CSC)-like cells are thought be responsible for disease recurrence and associated death in most cancers. Better identifications and selective therapeutic targets against these CSC-like cells could further improve disease outcomes.

Some of the current research projects are:

1. How does metabolic adaptations could impact on CSC-like cells and drive the oncogenicity of breast cancer?

2. How does selective therapeutic usage of different bioenergetics modulators could improve disease outcomes?
