Dr. Guha then joined the prestigious Specialty Training and Advanced Research (STAR) Fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles where he also received his PhD from the Molecular Biology Institute under the astute tutelage of Professor Enrique Rozengurt. Dr. Guha is a board certified clinical gastroenterologist and a physician-scientist at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Texas.

Dr. Guha’s clinical practice focuses on the entire spectrum of general gastroenterology with special emphasis on screening and surveillance of colorectal cancer. Dr. Guha performs all general gastroenterology procedures including upper endoscopy, enteroscopy, colonoscopy, various hemostasis techniques and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG).

Dr. Guha’s research comprises of both clinical and laboratory-based investigations. He has significant expertise in clinical outcomes research including meta-analysis and systematic reviews. Dr. Guha’s laboratory research consists of unraveling novel signaling pathways in pancreatic cancer (PaCa). Specifically, his current research focus is to dissect the role of a novel AKT regulator called BSTA that mediates oncogenic Ki-Ras signaling in PaCa. Dr. Guha recently received a NIH grant (R21) to further investigate this signaling pathway.
