Mallar Bhattacharya Named New RAPtr Assistant Director

The Resource Allocation Program for Trainees leadership is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Mallar Bhattacharya to the team.

As the new Assistant Director of the program, Dr. Bhattacharya will join Urmimala Sarkar and Dan Lowenstein in guiding the process of funded student scholarship at UCSF.  Mallar comes to us from a background in basic science research relating to lung disease. After completing medical school at Harvard and internal medicine residency at Johns Hopkins, he came to UCSF for his pulmonary and critical care fellowship. Mallar’s research focuses on 1) cellular mechanisms of airway contraction in asthma; and 2) vascular barrier function in acute lung injury and pulmonary edema. Mallar is excited to mentor students as they explore careers in research.

Along with Drs. Urmimala Sarkar and Dan Lowenstein, Dr. Bhattacharya will advise students who are considering a year of research and oversee the RAPtr funding application process for yearlong and summer fellowships.  He can be reached by email or phone at any time. 

Please join us in welcoming him to RAPtr!
