About Dr. Mohammad Safiqul Islam

Dr. Mohammad Safiqul Islam is currently working as a Professor of the Department of Pharmacy, Noakhali Science and Technology University, Bangladesh and is the principal investigator of Molecular Biology and Pharmacogenomics lab. After completing his B.Pharm and M.Pharm from the University of Dhaka, he joined as an industrial pharmacist in the Novartis (BD) Ltd for 2 years and later worked as a pharmacist in abroad. His inclination always lies toward academia and after gaining substantial experiences in pharmaceutical fields, he joined in the University of Asia Pacific in 2005 and finally in the current institution in 2006 as a lecturer. In 2010, he joined the research group of late professor Dr. Abul Hasnat, Department of Pharmacology and Clinical Pharmacy, University of Dhaka who was the pioneer of pharmacogenomics research in Bangladesh and completed his PhD on the “Lung cancer risk in relation to nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, CYP2A6 and CYP1A1 genotype in Bangladeshi population”. Professor Dr. Ann K Daly, Newcastle University, UK was also involved with his Ph.D. research work and relevant publication and his supervisor Prof. Dr. Hasnat obtained the University Grants Commission (UGC) Bangladesh award 2013 based on one of his Ph.D. publications. Mr. Islam was awarded JSPS postdoctoral fellowship (standard, 2 years) and joined the laboratory of Professor Kazushige Yokota, Shimane University on the April 2014.

Dr.  Islam then worked on several research works on the pharmacogenomics of Bangladeshi lung, breast, colorectal and prostate cancers and is now actively collaborating with some local and international research institutes. A research article entitled “Loss of asparagine synthetase causes congenital microcephaly and a progressive form of encephalopathy” was published from the collaboration with a Canadian research group in the Neuron.

Professor Islam also obtained UGC Gold Medal (UGC Award) 2017 for his publication in the life science category. He received a grant from the Ministry of Science and Technology, Bangladesh in 2013 also received a grant from UGC Bangladesh for working on the Pharmacogenomics of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Prof. Islam has actively participated in different local and international conferences and obtained travel grants from the organizers. He obtained travel grant from Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) International Summer Program 2009,  Korean Cancer association (KCA 2018 and KCA 2019), ISPOR Asia Pacific 2018, Japanese Society of Medical Oncology (JSMO 2018), Japanese Cancer Association (JCA 2019) and Asia-Pacific Congress of Interventional Oncology (APCIO) 2019.

Currently, he is working on the Pharmacogenomics of autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, diabetes, cervical cancer and breast cancer of the Bangladeshi population. He has more than 78 peer-reviewed publications and submitted a few more in the related peer-reviewed journals.
