Professional Summary

Early Detection of Degenerative Disorders & Innovative Solutions Lab

Dr. Amit Bhattacharya holds a Ph.D. degree in biomedical/mechanical engineering and a M.S. in fluid mechanics/heat transfer, both from the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky, U.S.A.  He is a tenured Professor of Environmental Health & have also a professor in Biomedical Engineering & Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A.  He is the founding Director of the Biomechanics‑Ergonomics Research Laboratories of the Department of Environmental Health. He is also the founding director of the Occupational Ergonomics/Safety graduate education program and the Pilot Research Training program sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and housed in the Department of Environmental Health within  college of medicine of the University of Cincinnati.  His recent research activities include  topics of gene-environment interaction and its impact on human neuromuscular system and application of Nano-sensors/BIOMEMS technology for early detection of neurodegenerative  and degenerative skeletal disorders. Over the years, Dr. Bhattacharya’s  research at the University of Cincinnati has been sponsored by federal agencies and private organizations (cumulative funding as P.I. and Co-Investigator: ~$29.0 million). Dr. Bhattacharya  has made significant contributions in the areas of biomechanics of slips/falls in the workplace, heat stress, occupational biomechanics of repetitive trauma, work station design, physiological/biomechanical effects of external vibration on animals and humans, therapeutic aspects of whole‑body vibration, development of countermeasures for cardiovascular deconditioning resulting from weightlessness, and  the development of noninvasive, sensitive techniques for the quantification of postural imbalance as an indicator of neurotoxicity and identification of preclinical biomechanical parameters of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.  His research in the area of noninvasive quantification of postural balance for use in detecting chemical toxicity received national recognition when he was invited by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) to present a hands‑on demonstration of this technique during National Medical Research Day at the U.S. House of Representatives and Earth‑Tech Show (both in Washington, D.C.).  Dr. Bhattacharya serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Occupational Ergonomics and was Chairperson of the Safety and Occupational Health Study Section for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). He is  frequently invited to serve as ad hoc member on a variety of scientific review panels organized by U.S. National Academies of Sciences & Engineering, National Institute of Health (NIH), NIOSH, CDC  and international organizations.  Dr. Bhattacharya has been active as an ergonomic/biomechanics consultant to various private industries as well as governmental agencies such as NIOSH and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  He is a Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society & Charter member of the National Academy of Inventors.  Also, he is a full member of the, Human Factors & Ergonomic Society, and the American Industrial Hygiene Association.

Research and Practice Interests

Occupational Biomechanics and Ergonomics; Neurobehavioral effects of chemical exposure; Quantitative posturography as a tool to detect neurotoxicity of chemical exposure in humans. This section briefly states Dr. Bhattacharya's future plans to enhance his current research activities. Dr. Bhattacharya intends to continue his current activities in the major area of biomechanic-ergonomic aspects of occupational health in order to clarify further the mechanics/mechanism of work-related injuries. He also intends to continue his efforts to develop new sensitive, noninvasive procedures for detecting clinical disorders which are currently undetectable until after a pathological state has set in. Availability of such techniques may help better monitoring of occupationally- and nonoccupationally-related hazards related to long-term exposures to low levels of either chemical and/or physical agents. Another major area of research focus is to apply some of his noninvasive techniques to help screen populations at risk (such as young children and older adults) of exposing themselves unintentionally to hazardous conditions. His recent research interest has focused in the area of worker performance/impairment when exposed to multiple risk factors of physical (workload, physical environmental and aging) as well as chemical (e.g. exposures to neurotoxic agents) origin. In summary, Dr. Bhattacharya's major effort will be to quantify and understand job-related injuries, as well as injuries of nonoccupational origin, and develop guidelines and methods for prevention of such injuries.
