Biography

A. K. M. Humayun Kober received the B.Sc.in Animal Husbandry and M. S. in Dairy Sciencefrom Bangladesh Agriculture University, Mymensingh, Bangladesh, and the Ph.D. degree from the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Japan. He has been doing JSPS Post-doctoral study on Food immunology (Immunological functional dairy food) in Tohoku University, Japan.

He joined as a Lecturer in the Department of Dairy & Poultry Science (DPS), CVASU in 2001 and served as an Assistant Professor from 2003 until 2011 and an Associate Professor from 2011 until 2015. Currently, he holds a position of Professor in the Department of DPS, CVASU. He published many scientific articles in reputed journals such as Beneficial Microbes, Journal of Poultry Science. He has immense interest to work on Food immunology particularly anti-adipogenic and anti-inflammatory activities of immunoregulatory probiotics (immunobiotics) by using porcine intramuscular adipocytes. He received several prestigious national and international awards during his academic career.Furthermore he presented his research works in reputedSocietysuch as Canadian Society of Microbiologists, Japanese Society of Animal Science.
