Biography

Bio

Dr. Ratan Banik is an assistant professor in the Department of Anesthesiology. His research focuses on postoperative pain following surgical incision, which includes behavioral phenotypes, peripheral nociceptor sensitization, and pharmacologic modulation. To understand genomic effects associated pain behaviors after surgery, he performs transcriptomic analysis of rat dorsal root ganglia using state-of-the-art next-generation sequencing. The approach permits the assessment of all genes expressed in the primary afferent neurons, uncovering gene dysregulation and respective molecular networks critical for the development of postoperative pain. Ongoing studies are aimed at identifying a novel pharmacologic target with high therapeutic potential in postoperative pain.

Dr. Banik's clinical interests are to help patients achieve functional restoration and improved quality of life through an effective multidisciplinary approach to pain management.
