Ghosh lab studies the role of regulatory RNAs during different stages of embryonic development with a special focus to investigate their effect on different substates of pluripotent stem cell states.

Ghosh lab also investigates the role of regulatory RNAs towards inducing epigenetic alterations within stem cell derivatives which makes them oncogenic.

Another focus of Ghosh lab is to study the biological mechanisms of cancer stem cells. Regulatory RNAs play a dominant role in the modulation of such processes.  

Ghosh Lab is being supported and sponsored by various funding agencies of Govt. of India: DBT (Dept. of Biotechnology), ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research), SERB etc.
