  • Soumya Raychaudhuri
    Brigham & Women's Hosp., Harvard Medical School
  • Soumya Raychaudhuri serves as the Director for the Center for Data Sciences at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and HMS and is appointed as an Institute Member at the Broad Institute. Additionally, he is clinically active and sees patients at the BWH Arthritis Center. After completing his MD/PhD at Stanford University, Raychaudhuri pursued clinical training in internal medicine, and then went on to pursue subspecialty training in rheumatology at BWH. He concurrently completed postdoctoral training in human genetics at the Broad Institute with Dr. Mark Daly. Since joining the faculty at Harvard Medical School in 2010, he has contributed to the understanding of the genetic basis of rheumatoid arthritis and other immune-mediated diseases. He has also been at the forefront of devising statistical and computational methods to localize genetic association signals to causal variants, and to interpret human genetic data in the context of functional information. He currently has active research programs in the human genetics and functional genomics of a wide range of human diseases such as tuberculosis, type I diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis. He has been striving to define the key cell-states and their function driving inflammation in these diseases, including the inflammatory fibroblast.
