Dr. Choudhuri is an accomplished immunobiologist whose majority of research is focused on the immunopathology of various infectious diseases including Tuberculosis, Dengue, Chagas Disease. He demonstrated record research success in the field of Diabetology as well. His present research at the University of Texas Medical Branch is focused to evaluate the role of different immune cells in organ-related pathology development in Chagas disease. He is studying the crosstalk between macrophages, platelets, and other immune cells of heart, liver, and systemic circulations in developing hypercoagulability in Chagas disease. He is also investigating the immunogenicity, safety, and efficacy of bicistronic-RIGI pathway agonist vaccines, developed as innovative therapeutics for Chagas disease. Dr. Choudhuri is the principal investigator of US National Institute of Health funded R21 grant (2023) on targeting HNF4 alpha in thrombo-inflammation and Chagas disease. He was also awarded the Institute of Human Infections and Immunity and UTMB funded Intramural Pilot grant in 2021 to investigate the role of Chronic inflammation in developing hypercoagulability events in Chagas disease. He has received numerous international awards and honors. Dr. Choudhuri received a young investigator travel grant award from the American Association of Clinical Biochemistry (AACC) in 2016 and from the Korean Society of Laboratory Medicine in 2016. Dr. Choudhuri won the outstanding speaker award for presenting his work on the pathogenic mechanism of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy at 13th Euro Obesity and Endocrinology Congress held in Zurich, Switzerland in 2017. Indian Council of Medical Research awarded him the Junior Research Fellow award in 2009 and the Senior Research Fellow award in 2011 while he was pursuing his PhD at the Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research, in Kolkata, India.
