Subhamoy Mandal (StM’04, M'16, SM'20) is currently an Assistant Professor at the School of Medical Science and Technology (SMST), IIT Kharagpur and an Affiliated Researcher with the Technical University of Munich, He is the Principal Investigator (PI) of the Medical Imaging and Theranostics Laboratory, and a Co-PI of the Advanced Imaging Facility at SMST. Prior to joining IIT, he was a Clinical Applications Engineer and Research Lead with Maxer Endoscopy GmbH (part of Erbe Elektomedizin Group). He was a Research Scientist in Molecular Imaging at the Division of Medical Physics in Radiology, German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Heidelberg (2017-19). He undertook doctoral training at the Chair of Biological Imaging at TU München, and the Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging at Helmholtz Zentrum München under the mentorship of Prof. Daniel Razansky (currently at ETH and University of Zurich) and Prof. Vasilis Ntziachristos. He received his MS (by research) from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, and B.E. in Biomedical Engineering from Manipal University, Karnataka, India. He is a recipient of the prestigious DAAD PhD Scholarships and the UK Commonwealth Scholarship. His areas of interest are Medical Signal & Image Processing, Medical Imaging and point-of-care affordable healthcare technologies.
Subhamoy is an active Member of IEEE, and is a recipient of Computer Society's Richard E. Merwin Student Scholarship. He was the 2013-14 Student Rep and AdCom member of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMB) Society, 2010-12 Chair, IEEE Education Society Student Activity Committee (IEEE EdSocSAC), and was awarded the IEEE Student Leadership Award (conferred by EdSoc) in 2013 for his contributions, He was the Founding Chair, IEEE EMB Student Club of IIT Kharagpur, which has been awarded the Best New Student Club/Chapter Award 2010 by IEEE EMBS Student and Member Activity Committee. He has been a Member of IEEE Ad-hoc Committee on Social Media Policy performing under the aegis of the IEEE Board of Directors, and also actively volunteered with the IEEE Student Branches at IIT Kharagpur(Treasurer 2009-10) and MIT Manipal.
Subhamoy has been closely associated with several corporate organizations including Philips, GE and Microsoft. During his internships with Philips BOP and the master’s thesis, he has focused on developing low-cost point of care technologies to address the healthcare challenges of emerging economies. At GE Global Research his primary area of focus has been Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and its application in Brain Iron Quantification, leading to early diagnosis of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
His goal is to achieve success in innovating technical and user-friendly solutions using the expertise of Biomedical engineering and domain knowledge of Medical Sciences by synchronized efforts in a collective venture.
