Areejit Phukan


Director, Analytics and Forecasting, Insmed Inc.

Bridgewater, NJ, USA


I am a healthcare and life sciences professional focusing primarily on data analytics and business insights with over 15 years of experience.  Over the years, I have had the honor of interacting with patients, care givers and healthcare professionals across different disease states. I believe that, at a fundamental level, if we treat patients with empathy, kindness and make an honest effort to understand what they are going through, it will have a positive impact on their state of being.

I currently reside in New Jersey with my wife and two kids. In my spare time, I love to read, bike and play tennis. I would highly recommend reading “Emperor Of All Maladies” by Siddhartha Mukherjee for a fascinating, heart wrenching and uplifting history of cancer and treatment evolution.

Mission statement:
I would like to be a part of Breast Cancer Hub (BCH) & its cause because a majority of the Breast Cancer cases are curable if there is education, self-awareness and opportunities for early detection, especially in the developing world. I have seen the positive impact of awareness and early detection of breast cancer / breast related issues in my family with my mother, sister and wife. BCH’s vision of spreading awareness around breast health via basic routine self-breast examination, clinical and radiological examinations will ultimately save lives and give patients the opportunity to continue to be mothers, fathers, siblings and ultimately live fulfilling, productive lives. I am honored to play a small role in BCH’s vision
