EDUCATION
2016-Present
Integrative Degree Program (Masters leading PhD), Neuroscience
Supervisor:
Changjoon Justin Lee
201&-2016
Masters of Science, Genetic Engineering^ Biotechnology
Department of Genetic Engineering&Biotechnology, University of Dhaka.
Thesis Project
"Association of polymorphism of peroxisome pro I iterator activator receptor gamma. (PPAR-G) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in type 2 Bangladeshi subjects"
This project aims to identify the key genetic determinants of obesity (OBS), hypertension (ITQ andl cardiovascular diseases(CVD) related genes in Bangladeshi population and their association with type 2 diabetes. In addition to molecular biology techniques, different tools of bioiriformatics will be used to analyze and construct a. common gene regulatory network ofmetabolic diseases and interactions among the genes will be studied too..

Thesis:
"Tea extract prevented arsenic-medliated death ofthymocytes in vitro"
In this studly, we report cytotoxic effects of arsenic in primary culture of murine thymocytes and the counteractive actions oftea
extract to reduce this cytotoxic effects.
