Neil Sengupta’s primary research interests revolve around the outcomes of patients admitted to the hospital with gastrointestinal bleeding. At present, his main focus is in evaluating cardiovascular complications in such patients, including those with a history of atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction, or percutaneous coronary intervention, as recent data suggests that bleeding is a predictor of overall mortality for this population. He is working to determine whether specific risk scoring systems can accurately predict major long-term composite cardiovascular endpoints for those admitted with gastrointestinal bleeding. He is also interested in whether specific interventions can be taken to reduce 30-day hospital readmissions following admission for bleeding.
His research findings have been published in Endoscopy, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
Sengupta holds bachelor of science degrees in biology and management science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He earned his MD from the University of Florida College of Medicine and completed his internship and residency training in internal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, as well as fellowship training in gastroenterology and hepatology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
