Research Experience

Dr. Banerjee is one of the few doctors in India to have pursued a dedicated doctoral degree in cancer research. He has always had a keen interest in research and has authored several research papers. This is because he has always been aware of the vital role of research in constantly improving our understanding of cancer so that this knowledge can then be passed on to our clinic practice (translational research) resulting in improved outcomes for patients and a more personalised approach to every patient.

Dr. Banerjee carried out his doctoral research in the Centre for Tumour Biology / Centre for Genomics and Computational Biology at the prestigious Barts Cancer Institute – a Cancer Research UK Centre of Excellence (under the Queen Mary University of London which is the home of several Nobel Prize winners). His doctoral work looked at the evolution of cancers and how they change when they spread from the primary cancer to the rest of the body. Research in this domain aims to look for soft spots in cancer which when targeted can potentially help to stem the spread of cancer.

Apart from this, he continues to be involved in several national and international research projects with the goal of improving the understanding of diseases and then utilising this information to provide better solutions for patient care.
