Amity University

Dr. Hridayesh Prakash is a fellow of the Royal Society of Biology, London. Currently, he is an associate professor at the Institute of Virology and Immunology, Amity University, NOIDA. He has expertise in innate immunity with a special interest in macrophage immunobiology, tumor immunology/immunotherapy, cell-based immunotherapies, pulmonary infection biology, and radiation biology. Dr. Prakash conducts research to exploit various immunotherapeutics for managing persistent bacterial and viral Infections and gastric cancer. He is unraveling the therapeutic potential of M1 effector macrophages against solid tumors. He is also studying various mechanisms that certain pathogens like Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia, and Mycobacteria are exploiting for polarizing M1 effector macrophages towards the M2 phenotype during chronic and persistent infections. Under this major objective, he is now validating the therapeutic impact of M1 effector macrophages for the control of persistent infection-driven cancer (adenocarcinoma) progression. Dr. Prakash is also exploring the palliative potential of macrophages against autoimmunity and chronic inflammatory disorders like IBD, radio-pneumonitis, pulmonary fibrosis, and radiation syndrome.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Hridayesh Prakash

This book is a collection of chapters that discuss methodologies, resources, and technologies by dedicated authors. This book has addressed the significance of macrophages in infectious disease, tumor metabolism, and muscular disorders. All chapters have focused on the fate of differentiated macrophages and discussed molecular pathways that are important for the pathologic role of macrophages. I am confident that our readers will find this book useful in designing immune mediated strategies for managing various diseases that this book is based on.
