Division of Infectious Diseases, Allergy & Immunology

Dr. Chatterjee was trained in Infectious Diseases at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), NIH, Bethesda with a post-doctoral fellowship in the Laboratory of Parasitic Diseases, NIAID. During his fellowship he received the prestigious American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygeine/Burroughs Wellcome fellowship award for conducting translational immunology work on Tuberculosis (TB) in India.

Dr. Chatterjee’s research focuses on the immunology of TB in high burden endemic countries with a special interest in how co-infections (e.g. helminth infections) modulate protective immunity to TB. His particular areas of interest are the effects of adaptive immunity on innate responses in chronic infections and the study of CD4+ memory responses in TB. He also has a special interest in tropical medicine and global health and has ongoing collaborations with two international research sites in India.
