Dr. Adhip P.N. Majumdar received his MS and Ph.D. degrees in Human Nutrition from the University of London, England and D.Sc (Doctor of Science) degree in Gastroenterology from the University of Aarhus, Denmark. Dr. Majumdar has been a Professor at Wayne State University since 1992. He also holds the post of Senior Research Career Scientist at the Detroit VA Medical Center. Over the past several years Dr. Majumdar’s work has been streamlined to uncover the biochemical and physiological pathways governing the growth of gastrointestinal (GI) tract. He has published close to 200 original scientific articles in peer-review journals and a multitude of book chapters and review articles. As reflected by the literature published from Dr.Majumdar's lab, he is particularly interested in elucidating the patho-physiology of age-related changes in the GI mucosa specifically those that lead to malignancy. To this end, Dr. Majumdar has been investigating the role of pluripotent, self-renewing CSCs in the development and progression of GI malignancies. Dr. Majumdar has been continually funded by the VA and NIH and is considered one of the nation’s leading investigators in gastrointestinal aging and cancer.
