About Md Abu Sayeed

My name is Md Abu Sayeed and I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I have completed a BSc and MS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. After completing my these degrees, I started research at the Mucosal Immunology and Vaccinology Lab of International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b), focusing on the evaluation of immune responses in cholera and typhoid patients as well as in vaccinees. In 2013, I joined the Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program (2013-2014) at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston. During this period, I worked on the development of cholera conjugate vaccine. Afterwards, I returned to the icddr,b and focused on the development of rapid diagnostic tests for enteric fever and cholera. In the future, my goal is to establish myself as an independent scientist with specific contributions in the field of infectious diseases. To pursue my goal, I joined Dr. Nelson’s lab at the University of Florida as a graduate assistant. I am very excited to be a part of Dr. Nelson’s Lab and I hope our research will have significant impact in the field of infectious diseases.
