    Collapse overview
    I have considerable experience in basic and translational research in leishmaniasis. Through my work at icddr,b under supervision of Dr. Dinesh Mondal, I have acquired substantial expertise in kala-azar/VL research. During my thesis, I was fascinated with Leishmania research while I evaluated several PCR based methods for diagnosis of VL. After that, I started my tenure as a research officer at icddr,b to make significant contributions in leishmania research, conducted by kala-azar team. I got the paramount opportunity to get acquainted with cutting edge technologies at Parasitology laboratory, led by a commendable parasitologist, Dr. Rashidul Haque. The technical expertise helped me to conduct several studies targeted to explore bio-markers for VL, to evaluate candidate vaccine for VL, to investigate the pathogenesis of VL. To conduct these studies I excelled in several laboratory techniques including PCR, ELISA, Luminex, real-time-PCR , RPA assay, Fluorescent Microscopy, etc. The technical expertise and potential output from research made a solid platform for me and prompted me to a step forward. Then I got the opportunity to make more contribution in research by designing and implementing as well as providing with technical assistance. Currently I am involved in several research projects on leishmaniasis where my roles include designing studies, performing laboratory works, analyzing data, writing manuscripts and maintaining liaison with collaborators.
