Biography

Dr. Amir Hossan Shaikat is serving as Associate Professor from 2019 in the Department of Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology. He received the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Tokyo, Japan. His particular research was focused on Endocrine Cell Signaling in the field of Physiology. In this study he has tried to find out the effect of Leptin in the regulation of ovarian function in chicks. For his research he has worked in the Laboratory of Animal Cell Engineering in Ibaraki University, Japan. Before that, he has received the degree of MS in Physiology and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU), Bangladesh. He also has received an overseas clinical training in Tamilnadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University as a part of his internship program in 2009.

He joined in the Department of Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology, CVASUas a Lecturer in 2011 and promoted as an Assistant Professor in 2014. His research interests are in the areas of molecular endocrinology, cell signaling in animals particularly in birds.

He has a handsome record of research that includes publications in a number of papers in the respected journals such as Animal Science Journal, Preventive Veterinary Medicine, Iranian Journal of Applied Animal Science, Veterinary World, Bangladesh Journal of Veterinary Medicine, University Journal of Zoology, Journal of Bangladesh Society for Agricultural Science and Technology, Advances in Animal and Veterinary Sciences and Journal of Advanced Veterinary and Animal Research. In addition, he has published a significant number of papers and abstracts in the proceedings of various conferences. Amir has some professional achievements during his academic career. He has organized the countries first Physiology Olympiad in 2013 which has attracted mass attention to the national media. He has a dream to organize the Physiology Olympiad in mass scale throughout the country in the coming days involving the all biology students and send them in to compete in International Biology Olympiad. He has received several awards during his student life and academic career. He has supervised 5 undergraduate students in their undergraduate research and co-supervised 4 students in their Master’s research.

Research Interest

His research career started at CVASU in 2010, where he joined as Masters student mainly focusing on Sex reversal of chicken. Finding this extraordinarily rare thing, his concentration has focused on Endocrinology. After that. He has been trying to dig out the facts and relationship between hormones and reproduction in an extended manner. As a part of his academic research involvement with some other colleagues he has got an exposure on handling and sampling from various wild and migratory birds. By this way, he has been involved and focused on endocrine cell signaling in birds and now in his higher study he tried to find the effect of leptin in regulation of ovarian function in chicks. Now he has a motivation to work on relationship between endocrine signaling and cancer mechanism.
