Dr. Soham Ghosh is an assistant professor for the Colorado State University Department of Mechanical Engineering. He is also a core faculty of the C. Wayne McIlwraith Translational Medicine Institute, School of Biomedical Engineering and Program in Cell and Molecular Biology. He directs the Cellular Engineering and Mechanobiology Lab, located at the Translational Medicine Institute.

Dr. Ghosh’s research interests include understanding the fundamental mechanobiological principles of degenerative diseases, creating regenerative medicine technologies with engineered cells, elucidating collective cell behavior, and demystifying innate cellular response to environmental stress. His lab has a specific focus on cell and nuclear mechanobiology, chromatin organization, and epigenetic mechanisms. Dr. Ghosh’s work has been published in several reputed and high impact journals including Nature and Cell. He is an active member of Biomedical Engineering Society and ASME Bioengineering division, and he chaired multiples sessions in their conferences. He is a reviewer of many professional journals including eLife, Biophysical Journal, ASME Journal of Biomechanical Engineering, Tissue Engineering, Nucleus, Journal of the Royal Society Interface and PLOS one.

Dr. Ghosh has a strong commitment to educating and that includes communities beyond CSU students. He received many teaching awards throughout his career. Currently, he teaches MECH 262: Engineering Mechanics, BIOM 441: Biomechanics and Biomaterials, and MECH/BIOM 480A9: Regenerative Bioengineering with Stem Cells.
