I am Md Jalal Uddin & a second-year Ph.D. student in Microbiology/Chemical proteomics at Host-microbes interactions (HMI) research groups, Department of Medical Biology (IMB), Faculty of Health Sciences, UiT.
My current research focuses on employing chemical probes-so-called, activity-based probes (ABPs) and microbiological techniques to study how bacterial pathogens adapt to environmental and stress conditions that trigger protective mechanisms such as biofilm formation or antibiotic persistence. Activity-based probes (ABPs) will be used to detect, enrich, and identify target enzymes relevant to bacterial survival and pathogenesis.
I obtained my Master’s in Biomedical Sciences from Kangwon National University, Chuncheon, South Korea & the thesis title was “Characterization of virulent bacteriophages to control multidrug-resistant Salmonella Typhimurium”. After completing my master’s, I worked as a Researcher at Microbial Pathogenesis Lab at Kangwon National University, South Korea & the working project was entitled “Design of Phage-Based System to Control Multiple Antibiotic-Resistant Pathogens”.
Previously, I completed my Bachelor’s in Microbiology from Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh. My working research project was entitled “Evaluation of sensitivity and specificity of immunochromatography methods for rapid detection of common diarrheal viruses (rotavirus, adenovirus, and norovirus) associated with gastroenteritis in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
