Research and Practice Interests

Occupational Biomechanics and Ergonomics; Neurobehavioral effects of chemical exposure; Quantitative posturography as a tool to detect neurotoxicity of chemical exposure in humans. This section briefly states Dr. Bhattacharya's future plans to enhance his current research activities. Dr. Bhattacharya intends to continue his current activities in the major area of biomechanic-ergonomic aspects of occupational health in order to clarify further the mechanics/mechanism of work-related injuries. He also intends to continue his efforts to develop new sensitive, noninvasive procedures for detecting clinical disorders which are currently undetectable until after a pathological state has set in. Availability of such techniques may help better monitoring of occupationally- and nonoccupationally-related hazards related to long-term exposures to low levels of either chemical and/or physical agents. Another major area of research focus is to apply some of his noninvasive techniques to help screen populations at risk (such as young children and older adults) of exposing themselves unintentionally to hazardous conditions. His recent research interest has focused in the area of worker performance/impairment when exposed to multiple risk factors of physical (workload, physical environmental and aging) as well as chemical (e.g. exposures to neurotoxic agents) origin. In summary, Dr. Bhattacharya's major effort will be to quantify and understand job-related injuries, as well as injuries of nonoccupational origin, and develop guidelines and methods for prevention of such injuries.

Dr. Meller has also been active in the development and applications of methods for knowledge extraction from high dimensional genomic data (Sinha and Meller, 2008; Shinde et al., 2010; Huang et al., 2012).

Benefiting from a strong emphasis on team science at the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Dr. Meller and his group have also been involved in many collaborative projects with direct medical relevance. Examples of such interdisciplinary efforts include sequencing and annotation of human pathogens, identification of markers associated with disease subtypes in cancer and autoimmunity, modeling of signal transduction pathways in differentiation and development, developing inhibitors of critical protein-protein interactions in autophagy, bone marrow transplants, and pathogen-host interactions.

Dr. Meller has been broadly involved in quantitative and computational training efforts within UC College of Medicine and College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, leading several inter-departmental and inter-collegiate initiatives in this regard. Dr. Meller serves as the Director of the newly created PhD program in Biomedical Informatics at UC, co-director of the Biomedical Informatics Graduate Certificate Program, and has been involved in several informatics and quantitative training efforts at UC College of Medicine, including T32 Advanced Multidisciplinary Training Program for Systems Biology and T32 Gene-Environment Interactions Training Grant. In addition, Dr. Meller is the co-director of the Bioinformatics Core for the Center of Environmental Genetics at the University of Cincinnati.

Research and Practice Interests

My research is focused on computational methods in molecular biology and genomics. In short, what we are doing may be classified either as computational biology or bioinformatics, with significant component of pattern recognition and machine learning. We are pursuing research on fundamental problems, such as protein folding process and protein-protein interactions. On a more practical side, we are also interested in developing bioinformatics tools, e.g. for protein structure and function recognition or gene annotation. We are also developing methods for identification of predictive fingerprints of disease states that aim at finding correlation between multiple genomic and clinical attributes with disease states, progression and treatment response. In collaboration with biologists, biochemists and physicians, we are applying standard and our own methods to particular problems at hands.
