Dr. Manoj K. Pandey is presently on faculty in the Division of Human Genetics at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Dr. Pandey received BSc and MSc degrees in disciplines of biology and life science from the Institute of Life Sciences and CSJM University, Kanpur, India. Dr. Pandey accomplished his PhD research on “Maternal Immunoregulation and Fetal Survival” in the Department of Medical Genetics, Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, India. He did post-doctoral investigations in IgG and complement-mediated immune comebacks in cancer, autoimmunity, allergy, and asthma diseases in the laboratory of Dr. Stephen J. Russell in the Molecular Medicine Program at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN (2002-2004) and Dr. Jörg Köhl in Division of Immunobiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC), Cincinnati, OH (2005-2009). Dr. Pandey joined the Division of Human Genetics at CCHMC as a faculty member in 2010. He has a broad background in immunology with specific expertise in complement system, autoantibodies, cytokines, and chemokines that develop cellular and humoral immune response and lead to the visceral and brain tissue damage in rare genetic lysosomal storage, and neurodegenerative diseases. His research studies have been rewarded with Alexion rare disease innovation funding, Alexion discovery funding, CCTST-JIT funding, multiple platform presentations and an early career faculty travel grant to the American Association of Immunology and American Academy of Neurology conferences. He has published in peer-reviewed journals, including the J Clin Invest (2006), J Exp Med (2007), Cell Microbiol (2010), J Immunol (2010 & 2013), Hum Mol Genet (2010 & 2015), Nature (2017), and Semin Immunol (2018).
