Subhendu Mukherjee, PhD

Director, Neurovascular Regeneration and Immunomodulation Research Program

Subhendu completed his master’s degree in Biochemistry specializing in neuroscience and neuroinformatics from Calcutta University, India, followed by Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Jadavpur University, India. His Ph.D. thesis was focused on the novel molecular mechanisms behind the cardioprotective properties of some natural products.

After completing his Ph.D., Subhendu moved to Canada for his postdoctoral fellowship at McMaster University, where he explored the role of calcium signaling in the progression of pulmonary fibrosis. Then, he joined Sunnybrook Research Institute, Toronto, Canada as a research associate and explored local magnetic delivery techniques to deliver gene therapy and stem cell therapy into the inner ear for preventing noise-induced hearing loss.

He joined Create Fertility Centre in February 2021 as the Director of the Neuroregeneration Research Programs. At Create Fertility Centre, his main research focus is to examine the involvement of immune cells in the inner ear after noise injury and the role of HUCPVC in immunomodulation and preventing sensory neural hearing loss. He also collaborates with other researchers to explore the anti-aging and anti-fibrotic properties of HUCPVC.
