Dr. Shanta Dutta MD, Ph.D., Scientist G, National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases, Kolkata, is a clinical microbiologist and a medical research scientist. After graduated in Medicine from Calcutta National Medical College under the University of Calcutta in 1986, she completed postgraduation in Medical Microbiology from the Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, Mangalore University in 1992. She has joined NICED, a constituent Institute of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and a WHO Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in Enteric Diseases, in August 1994 and presently holding the post of Scientist G (Director) in the Division of Bacteriology.

She was awarded with RONPAKU fellowship of JSPS (Japanese Society for Promotion of Science) during 2001-2005 by Dept. of Science and Technology, M/O Science and Technology, Govt. of India (Indian counterpart) and was conferred with Ph.D. Degree from Kyushu University, Japan in 2006 under this program. During this fellowship she gained experience of working on virulence, antimicrobial resistance and molecular epidemiology of enteric bacterial pathogens in the Department of Bacteriology, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan. She was selected to participate in the Advanced WHO course on "Immunology, Vaccinology, Biotechnology and Biosafety applied to Infectious Diseases", held in Lausanne, Switzerland during Sept. - Oct., 1996.

Research Interest

The area of her research work focuses on both applied and basic aspects of enteric diseases and enteric pathogens with special reference to entero-virulent Escherichia coli, Shigella, Salmonella and V. cholerae species. Studying phenotypic and genetic characters of various enteric bacteria and analyzing the results are her major research interest. In view of the emerging issues of antimicrobial resistance, exploring antibacterial activity of herbal extracts is another area, where she puts in efforts, which might lead to some new product with strong antibacterial potential. Other research interests include bacterial population genetics, evaluation of new/ existing diagnostic tests for enteric diseases along with development of more user friendly and comprehensive point of care tests, enteric vaccine evaluation and efficacy testing, estimation of disease burden based on sero-surveillance etc. .
