Dr. Neloy Kumar Chakroborty completed his Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology and his Master’s degree in Molecular Biology with Genetics and Biophysics from the University of Calcutta, Kolkata (ranked 2nd in the university in both occasions). He was selected for the CSIR-UGC national fellowship (qualified the National Eligibility Test) to pursue research in Life Sciences in India. He joined the prestigious National Centre for Biological Sciences, TIFR, Bengaluru as a Research Fellow and performed research for two years in Cell Biology and Genetics. He did his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the Free University of Berlin, Germany in 2012. During this tenure, he explored the behavioral and neuronal mechanisms of olfactory learning and memory processes in the European honeybee, Apis mellifera. He developed new protocols of behavioral training and physiological recordings of neural signals (in vivo calcium imaging) from different subsets of neurons of the central nervous system of honeybee. He continued his research in Cognitive Neuroscience during his postdoc and used different techniques and animal models (Drosophila melanogaster, Human) to understand the functional connections  between neural circuits and genes with different types of sensory learning processes, analyzing brain and behavior at multiple levels – network function, genetic, molecular, behavioral and cognitive. Dr. Chakroborty is highly interested to provide research training to the students and supervise them for their theses.
