Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Shazid Md. Sharker completed his B.Pharm (Hons.) degree from the Khulna University, Khulna, Bangladesh. He obtained his Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) degree in 2011 from the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, Dhaka University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The title of his M.Phil thesis was “Chemical and Biological Studies of Two Crassulaceous Species Available in Bangladesh.”

Later he moved to South Korea to pursue his PhD under the International Student Scholarship Program, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), South Korea. Dr. Shazid obtained his PhD in August, 2016 from Professor Haeshin Lee’s Lab, KAIST, South Korea. The title of his PhD dissertation was “Stimulus-responsive Fluorescent Nanoparticles for Theragnosis.” Afterward, he came back home and joined North South University (NSU) in 15th January, 2017.

In his doctoral studies at the KAIST, Dr. Shazid conducted research on stimulus responsive fluorescence nanoparticles, where he developed cancer targeted and carbonized fluorescence nanoparticles and sophisticated materials for Photothermal Therapy (PTT). Dr. Shazid has got a research training experience from Professor Sung Young Park’s Lab, Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering, Korea National University of Transportation, South Korea. Dr. Shazid has since branched into Nano-Biomaterial applications at KAIST in the research group of Professor Haeshin Lee. He is currently working on the development of fluorescent and magnetic nanoparticles for the theragnostic applications.

Dr. Shazid’s Theragnosis nanoparticles research has been recognized by over 20 major international SCI publications, including prestigious Biomaterials (Impact Factor: 8.4); Nanoscale (Impact Factor: 7.76); Journal of Controlled Release (Impact Factor: 7.44); ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces (Impact Factor: 7.15); Carbon (Impact Factor: 6.19); Biomacromolecules (Impact Factor: 5.58); Journal of Materials Chemistry B (Impact Factor: 4.87); Chemistry - An Asian Journal (Impact Factor: 4.59); RSC Advances (Impact Factor: 3.29) and so on.

At North South University (NSU), Dr. Shazid plans to continue to explore the use of nanotechnology to expand the understanding of nanoscale biological interactions. His goal is to develop drug delivery carriers and to discover new uses for nanomaterials with both therapeutic and diagnosing applications. Dr. Shazid is highly interested in training Project (B. Pharm) students and Thesis students for who are interested in Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology & On-demand Drug Delivery, Bio-Inspired Research and Cancer Theragnosis.
