RESEARCH INTEREST

I am interested in host-pathogen interactions in airways. Currently working on how Streptococcus pneumoniaeinfection alter the metabolic phenotype of macrophages in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

 

 

 

 

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE AND PROFESSIONAL POSITIONS

 

1. Research Officer (April 2010-Feb 2012): I joined as a Research Officer at the Immunology Laboratory, Centre for Vaccine Sciences, ICDDR,B. My main responsibilities were to track out innate and adaptive immune responses after diarrheal infection and vaccination. Through my research works, our team tracked some antigen specific memory B cells againstVibriocholerae and Enterotoxigenic E. coli which might contribute for long lasting protection.

 

2. Faculty Member (March 2012- Present): I joined as a Lecturer at the department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh on 1st March 2012. I taught both theory and practical coursesat undergraduate and MS level.

 

3. Research Associate (Nov 2012- April 2013): I joined as a Research Associate at the department of International Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. I took a leave for six months from University of Dhaka to take up this position. Here I have worked on a ETEC vaccine which made by genetically modified strains of Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) and double mutant heat labile toxin adjuvant, quantify its immune responses especially ETEC specific memory B cell by the ELISPOT technique.
