Biography

Dr. Mohammad Lutfur Rahman received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) and Masters in Anatomy (MS) from the Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, Bangladesh. Thereafter, he completed Doctoral degree (PhD) from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT), Japan. He completed studies focused on applications of molecular genetics and functional genomics, with an emphasis on potential applications in Veterinary Medicine as an Endeavour fellow in Sydney University, Australia. He successfully studied many neuroscience techniques for assessing eye and brain of New Caledonian Crow and vertebrates as a Commonwealth fellow in Cardiff University, UK. He did post doctoral research as a Borlaug fellow to study different diagnostic protocols and surveillance of important zoonotic and emerging diseases of Livestock and Poultry for development of ELISA, PCR, RT-PCR & other tests in USA. He also completed his post doc from Utsunomiya University, Japan with the fellowship of Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS). He received special training on plastination techniques to prepare museum specimens from the Royal Veterinary College, University of London, UK. He joined in the Department of Anatomy and Histology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU) as a Lecturer in 2001 and promoted as Assistant Professor in 2003. He was an Associate Professor from 2004 until 2012. Currently, he is a Professor in the same Department at CVASU. Dr. Rahman has a significant record of research that includes publications in a number of papers in the peer reviewed journals.  In addition, he has published a significant number of papers and abstracts in the proceedings of various conferences. Dr. Rahman has had some professional achievements during his academic career. He is the pioneer to establish an Anatomy museum in his department.  

Research Interest

Study of function and morphology of retinal interneuron (visual acuity and color discrimination), migratory and supporting cell of the retina, visual phototransduction process by which light is converted into electrical signals. Biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology of the cGMP-gated cation channel of photoreceptor cell and its alpha and beta subunits. I am interested to investigate the mechanism of pigment regeneration in the cone visual system, light adaptation. transmission of signals by neurons to the brain for color visual perception and also interested to study associated retinal disorders.
