Research Interest:   Md Abdul Kafi received DVM and MS in Microbiology from BAU, Bangladesh. Then, he pursued PhD in integrated Biotechnology from Sogang University, Korea. During PhD research, Dr. Kafi developed cell based sensor for environmental monitoring using label free electrochemical methods. Afterwards, he was awarded with Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) fellowship for working at Kyushu University, Japan. In the postdoctoral research, he developed peptide functionalized chitosan scaffold suitable for supporting hMSC adhesion and proliferation for invitro 3D tissue growth. Dr. Kafi also awarded Marie Curie Individual fellowship at University of Glasgow, UK, where, he worked on BIOPOLYMER based platform for biocompatible, biodegradable and bioresorbable electronics for wearable/implantable diagnostic devices. His current research focussed on: Development of degradable sensor-patch for medical analytes; Invitro 3D tissue engineering as an alternative of Auto/Allo/Xeno graft; and Mammalian cellular redox based biosynthesis of nanoparticle (AgNP) and their antimicrobial effect study.
