Dr. Mandal specializes in teaching, and research in immunology. He earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Human Physiology from the Calcutta University, India and his Doctor of Philosophy in Science from the Jadavpur University, Calcutta. He completed post-doctoral trainings in cellular immunology at the Gwen Knapp Center for Lupus and Immunology Research, University of Chicago, and in vaccine delivery at the University of Michigan, College of Pharmacy. Dr. Mandal held research faculty positions at the University of Michigan, and Virginia Tech. At Virginia Tech, he was involved in bio-defense research in Tularemia. Currently, he is an Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Roseman University College of Pharmacy where he teaches courses in Hematology & Immunology. He is an adjunct faculty at the Roseman College of Dental Medicine and instructs students of the Dental Medicine program and residents of the Orthodontic program. Dr. Mandal is also an adjunct faculty of Roseman College of Medicine, Touro University Nevada, and JSS University, India.
Dr. Mandal has presented his research at national and international scientific meetings in pharmaceutical sciences, immunology, and pharmacy education. He has served the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) in various capacities serving on committees, reviewing grants, abstracts, judging posters, writing items and performing accreditation site visits.
Dr. Mandal was awarded a Fulbright Specialist appointment with the US Department of State’s Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and World Learning in 2019 with a three year tenure. He also served as an editor for the Microbial Toxins in Handbook of Toxinology, Springer in 2015-2017, and contributed a chapter. His current research interest includes salivary biomarkers, anti-inflammatory properties of natural products, and student knowledge retention. Dr. Mandal is a member of the AACP, AAPS, and American Association of Immunologists (AAI) & American Association of Advancement of Science (AAAS).
