Mahbub Hasan is a biotechnologist having years of experience in academia and the biopharmaceutical industry combined. As an industrial biotechnologist, he worked in different departments of R&D to develop cost-effective Biosimilar (especially Insulin Glargine) in Bangladesh. He is an expert in the mass spectrometry-based characterization of biotherapeutics and computational biology based structure-function characterization of proteins (especially plant aquaporins). He is actively involved in collaborative research and particularly enjoys working with students.
