About AMNPR

The Alternative Medicine & Natural Product Research Lab is a part of the Centre for Research Excellence (CRE) which is one of the lead laboratory for scientific research on the diverse medicinal plants and natural products that are not generally considered part of conventional medicine. This organisation is working to mitigate the urgency of new and reliable source of therapeutic agents and knowing their scientific proof. This lab is working in a holistic approach through Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Simulation methods to find out the alternative medication system for mainly emerging non-communicable diseases.

About Principal Investigator

Dr. Md. Atiar Rahman has been working as an international professor (distinguished scholar category) at Walailak University, Thailand. Dr. Rahman was born in 1975 and he has had his B.Sc honors and M.Sc in Biochemistry from the University of Dhaka (Bangladesh) in the year 1996 and 1997 respectively. He has been awarded his Ph.D. degree from the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Ehime University Japan under the Japanese Government’s Monbukagakusho Scholarship for 2003-2006. He has also been awarded a postdoctoral fellowship in KwaZulu Natal University (Westville Campus) Durban, from the National Research Fund of South African Govt. He started his career as a lecturer in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Chittagong University in 2004 and was promoted to the current position in 2013. He is a principal investigator of the Laboratory of Complementary & Alternative Medicine and Natural Product Research of the aforementioned department.

Dr. Srabonti Saha has been working as an associate professor at the University of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Dr. Saha received her B.Sc. honors and MS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the same university in 2007 and 2009, respectively. She has also been awarded her Ph.D. degree from the University of Chittagong for 2019–2023. She started her career as a lecturer in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Chittagong University in 2013 and was promoted to her current position in 2023. She is a co-principal investigator of the Laboratory of Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Natural Product Research of the above-named department. Her particular intrigue and passion for research are deeply related to drug discovery. When she began her career studying molecular biology and biochemistry, her interest was first sparked. This bond sent her into a fanciful universe where she believed that natural compounds and structural analogues have traditionally played a significant role in pharmacotherapy.

Lab Resources

A focus on pharmacological screening and understanding the mechanisms at the molecular level has placed renewed importance on laboratory and research spaces. We have designed and collaborated with other labs in such orient that help us to investigate the research question thoroughly and produce data flawlessly. Besides, we are working on adding new and latest lab resources that will fuel us to ensure a quality research environment.

It’s no surprise that exceptional research requires cutting-edge tools and laboratories. Our faculty, researchers, graduate students, and undergrads use our state-of-the-art facilities to fuel their innovative — and often unprecedented — explorations.
