Sreya Ghosh is an immunologist working on infectious diseases and cancer. She trained with Dr. Katherine Fitzgerald working on innate immune responses, inflammation, and immune gene regulation. At Boston Children's Hospital, she's a research fellow with Dr. Ivan Zanoni and works on understanding the role of Type III Interferons in diseases. Her research involves deciphering the unique abilities of Type III Interferons in infection, inflammation and tumorigenesis, to facilitate their clinical translation and create effective interventions in diseases such as respiratory infections, IBD and colon cancer.


Sreya Ghosh completed her B.Sc. & M.Sc. in Biochemistry from University of Calcutta, India. She received her Ph.D. in Immunology & Microbiology from University of Massachusetts Medical School, USA under the guidance of Dr. Kate Fitzgerald. Currently, Dr. Ghosh is a postdoctoral research fellow in Dr. Ivan Zanoni's group at Harvard Medical School & Boston Children's Hospital.

Formerly the co-chair of the Career Development Committee, since 2020, Dr. Ghosh serves as the Co-President of Boston Children's Postdoc Association. Outside of science, Sreya enjoys experimenting with different cuisines, exploring different cultures, dancing, literature, art, and history.
