Professor Earns Fellowship to Assess Stress Levels of U.S. Air Force

Southeast engineering and physics professor Dr. Santaneel Ghosh secured a summer faculty fellowship with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.

Ghosh will be working to develop a nano-device to detect and assess the stress level and health status of Air Force men and women.

“An easy, inexpensive, and point of care testing approach for the detection of the intracellular stress can be extremely useful,” says Ghosh.

“If you can determine the stress level internally, that would be more accurate. It would be easier to predict and far more scientific when you proceed with the treatment.

“I believe this device can also be very helpful in cancer treatment to determine how far one can and should go with the administration of chemotherapeutic drug(s)/radiotherapy during cancer treatment.”

The fellowship follows a competitive selection process. Proposals were submitted to the Air Force Office of Scientific Research from across the nation, and Ghosh’s was chosen after several rounds of review.
