Curriculum Vitae


Dr. Jinath Sultana is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Biology and Chemistry at the School of Health and Life Sciences, North South University. She received her PhD in Microbiology from the City University, Hong Kong. She has been actively involved in molecular biology research for many years involving molecular investigations of pathogen epidemiology and virulence.  Her research interest and specialism include food and water borne pathogens, transmission and pathogenesis of Helicobacter pylori in developing country, screening of enzyme producing microorganisms as a tool of bioremediation, development and application of novel DNA-based technologies as risk assessment tool, and screening of bcateriophages to use as phage therapy.
