Short Biography:

Dr. Md. Aminul Islam is serving as a Professor of Veterinary Medicine, Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh, Bangladesh. Dr. Islam has recently finished his JSPS postdoctoral program in the Lab of Animal Products Chemistry, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan. Dr. Islam earned his PhD in immunogenomics from the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany. His PhD project focused on integrated microRNA and mRNA transcriptome profiling of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) following Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome virus vaccination in pigs. He gained Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) qualification from BAU, Mymensingh, Bangladesh. Dr. Islam obtained two master& degrees; first masters was from BAU, Bangladesh and the second masters was from the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium. Dr Islam teaches infectious and zoonotic diseases of farm animals, epidemiology and immunology. His research interests focused on epidemiology, immunogenomics and bioinformatics of infectious diseases. Dr Islam published more than 50 research articles in peer-reviewed Scopus-indexed impact factor journals. His h-index is 18, i10-index is 29. Dr. Islam have been performed research and published scientific articles with very multinational collaborators from Japan, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, South Africa, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Australia, USA, Argentina, and Chile. Dr. Islam with his team has been contributed to NCBI-GEO database with series of Microarray/NGS-based whole transcriptome dataset: GSE84516; GSE84347; GSE78254; GSE141695; GSE139612.

Other Experience:

Dr. Islam is a registered veterinary practitioner and love to deal with clinical cases of dairy cattle and goats.
