He undertook seminal research on body fluid changes in health and diseases, viz. cholera; and recognition of 'para-sprue', a malnutritional syndrome common in India. He investigated 'Thinthinia' in 1936 and subsequently studied gastric acidity in Indians. He also contrbituted on eosinophil lung, amoeboma, pulmonary amoebiasis, and hypoprotinaemia. He was the President of the Medical and Veterinary Section, Indian Science Congress, a member of the International Congress of Tropical Medicine and Malaria. Dr. Chaudhuri was the recipient of the ‘Padma Bhushan Award’ in 1960 and ‘ANB Prize’ by the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh in 1968.
