Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Dr. Sinha is physician researcher interested in translating biomedical innovations into novel therapeutics and diagnostics. His research is focused on cost-effective technologies to improve health with a particular interest in targeted therapies for GI immune-mediated disorders. My clinical focus is in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). He has formal training in biodesign (technology development to improve health) and in translational immunology in the lab of Dr. Aida Habtezion. In addition, he is interested in other applications of technology to improve health such as remote monitoring/mobile health. Realizing that such research requires experts across disciplines, his projects have included collaboration with individuals from various specialties of engineering, business, medicine/surgery, and computer sciences. He has been engaged in numerous multidisciplinary research projects at organizations such as the World Health Organization, Health Information and Technology Lab at Columbia University, and Stanford University/Stanford Biodesign.
