Indranil Sinha,  MD
Plastic Surgeon, Associate Director Burn Center
Instructor in Surgery, Harvard Medical School

Dr. Sinha received his B.A. at the University of California, Berkeley in Molecular and Cellular Biology.  Following this, he attending the University of Michigan Medical School.  He next matriculated into the Harvard Plastic Surgery Residency Program.  During this time, he was awarded an F32 and spent two dedicated research years focused on studying inflammation and loss of skeletal muscle regeneration during aging.  He is now an Attending Plastic Surgeron at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Dr. Sinha’s interests are to evaluate derangements of inflammation and the hypoxia pathway that occur with aging or diabetes and determine if reversal of these processes can limit loss of skeletal muscle regeneration and muscle wasting that occurs in these conditions.
