Abu Ali Ibn Sina, a former student at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, has been appointed as a visiting researcher at Harvard University in the United States.
He confirmed the matter to Kaler Kantha on Wednesday (June 9) night.
Abu Ali Ibn Sina said he received an offer from Harvard University to join as a visiting scientist. I will work at two world-renowned cancer institutes, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard University and the Herbert Irwin Comprehensive Cancer Center at Columbia University.
Asked about his feelings, he said the feelings are certainly awesome. The main purpose of the work there is to make the Ten Minute Cancer Test suitable for human use. Having the opportunity at Harvard will speed up the work of bringing the cancer test to the market. That’s why I feel better.
Earlier, Abu Ali Ibn Sina’s ten-minute study of cancer detection was published in Nature Communications, prompting widespread response in the international media, including the BBC, CNN, the Guardian and Al Jazeera.
It is to be mentioned that after completing his undergraduate and postgraduate studies from the Shabiprabi Chemistry Department, he joined a corporate company for some time. Not staying there, he joined Shabiprabir as a teacher in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Then, he took a leave of absence to pursue a PhD at the University of Queensland, Australia.
He started researching cancer from the time he did his PhD. He is currently pursuing cancer research as a Research Fellow at the same university. He lives in Brisbane, Australia with his wife Sabiha Sultana and son Jabir Ibn Hayyan. His village home is at Babur Hat in Chandpur.
