Dr. Sarkar has been a Distinguished Professor in the Departments of Pathology and Oncology at
Karmanos Cancer Institute, Wayne State University School of Medicine (Retired in January, 2016) who
started his scientific career in 1978 when he completed his Ph.D. thesis work. Dr. Sarkar’s early research,
which continued, has been focused on understanding the role of a “master” transcription factor, NF-B, and the
regulation of its upstream and downstream signaling molecules in solid tumors, and especially focusing on
tumor microenvironment. Moreover, his research has been directed toward elucidating the molecular
mechanism(s) of action of “natural agents”, and their synthetic analogues, in addition to other synthetic small
molecule inhibitors of Bcl-2 and MDM2 for cancer prevention and therapy. The discoveries from in vitro and in
vivo preclinical studies led to the design and execution of multiple Phase I/II clinical trials in breast, pancreas
and prostate cancer for assessing the effects of several “natural agents” in the alterations of biomarkers as well
as for assessing some early clinical efficacy. Dr. Sarkar’s research led to the concept of chemo-sensitization of
cancer cells by reversing their drug-resistance phenotype to conventional therapeutics (chemo-radio-therapy)
by natural agents. All studies were focused on tumor microenvironment, system biology and integrated holistic
approach which led to clinical trials conducted at the Karmanos Cancer Institute. The innovation of his basic
science research has attracted clinicians to collaborate with him, which clearly documents his leadership in
translational research. Dr. Sarkar published 567 articles as listed in the pubmed.com, and also published over
100 review articles and book chapters. He also edited four books and serves in the editorial boards of halfdozen
Interests in petrochemical and agrochemical industries/ manufacturing/general industrial/environmental/workplace covering a wide range of classes of chemicals including pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, irritants, particulates, carcinogens, pharmaceuticals, illicit substances. Research currently centers on respiratory irritants and the expression of biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress from exposures to chemical agents.

I (born 1933) directed the Gastroenterology Research Unit, a third level referral center in the department of Pediatrics of the University of Florence (Meyer hospital) from 1965 to 2000. In Tuscany I first diagnosed celiac disease by the Watson capsule. I worked at the Cornell University for a joined research with the University of Florence on energy expenditure in children. A long term strategy was designed with Giuliano Parrini, prof. of Physics (Firenze, It), Andrea Giommi, prof. of Statistics (Firenze, It), and Cutberto Garza, Boston College, Rector. Three students came from Amsterdam Medical Center to learn “Initial Hunger (IH)”. The Unit published 150 scientific articles, more than 50 in international Press.
