For the last 33 years I have gained extensive experience in the design, implementation, and analysis of data from clinical and community-based epidemiological/vaccine studies. My primary interests are to conduct researches on vaccines and infectious diseases. Besides clinical studies on ORS, drug trial, vaccine studies, vitamin A supplementation and hospital surveillance, I have been involved in community-based research on diarrhoeal and respiratory diseases and other public health problems in Bangladesh. Recently I have completed several studies on pneumococcal and rotavirus vaccines. Currently I am the Principal Investigator of several Flu, Hepatitis E, pneumococcal, polio, Japanese encephalitis (JE) and rotavirus vaccine studies and epidemiological studies on tuberculosis in icddr,b. The vaccine studies included all phases I,II, III, IV and with ICH GCP maintained. I have more than 142 publications in international journals and had 115 conference presentations.
