Dr. Dutt is a Principal Investigator (Scientist F) at Tata Memorial Center, Mumbai. Dr. Dutt did his Ph.D from Univ. of Zurich, and postdoc at theBroad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Boston. The focus of his lab is to study the alterations underlying the human cancer genome using advanced sequencing and functional genomics approaches; to study the pathogens associated with human cancer; and, develop novel computational approaches to analyze high throughput cancer genome dataset. Dr. Dutt's laboratory has pioneered EGFR and KRAS mutation profiling in lung cancer patients of Indian origin; developed computational tools like “HPVDetector”, “TMC-SNPdb" and experimental tools like "CRE" with application in clinical diagnostics at the TMH. Dr. Dutt's postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Matthew Meyerson led to the discovery of somatic FGFR2 mutation in endometrial cancer; amplification of FGFR1 in lung squamous cell carcinoma; and, amplification of PDGFRA in lung cancer.
