Overview of Research & Academic Biography 

A. K. M. Humayun Kober received the B.Sc. in Animal Husbandry & M.S. in  Dairy Science from Bangladesh Agriculture University and the Ph.D. from the Tokyo University of Agriculture and TechnologyJapan. He has completed JSPS Post-doc study on Food immunology in Tohoku University, Japan and a Visiting Researcher in Norwegian Univ. of Life Sciences, Norway. He joined as a Lecturer in the Dept of Dairy & Poultry Science, CVASU in 2001 and he holds a position of Professor since 2015.

He published 40 original research articles (achievements about 50 IF) in reputed journals such as Frontiers in Immunology, Molecular Immunology, Cells etc. He also works in collaboration with Dr. Haruki Kitazawa of Tohoku University. These studies mainly focused on the development of functional foods and feeds using immunomodulatory probiotics. He received several prestigious national and international awards during his academic career including recipient of the “Best researcher award 2019-2020” of CVASU researcher’s, to chair a scientific session in front of very genius researcher (one of them are co-researcher of Nobel Laureate) in international symposium and holding national consultant (department of livestock services, GOB) positions.

He also involved professional activity including societies, reviewer of several journals, projects evaluator and editorial activity including Associate editor of Journal of Modern Agriculture and Biotechnology (Hong Kong). Furthermore he presented his research works in reputed Society such as Canadian Society of Microbiologists, European Microbiologists, and Japanese Society of Food immunology/ Animal /Veterinary/Dairy Science etc. Also he has supervised 10 MS and presently supervising 5 MS students. 

His present research activities focusing on:

1) Product development and quality evaluation of milk & milk products (Fig.1).

2) Development of next-generation immunobiotics for growing healthy livestock & humans (collaborative work with JP) (Fig.2).

3) Isolation and identification of LAB and developing Probiotic Dahi/ Yogurt in Bangladesh (Fig.3).

4) Antimicrobial uses in lactating cows /Antimicrobial residues in milk & milk products of Bangladesh (Fig.4-a & b).

5) Dairy production including sub-clinical Mastitis in Dairy cows of Bangladesh (Fig.5).

6) Isolation of Pathogens from Milk & Milk Products  (Fig.6).
