Dr. Ahmad is an enthusiastic young researcher and educator based in UK at the University of Cambridge, recently. During his post-doctoral fellowship within the Cambridge Analytical Biotechnology Research Cluster, he is investigating to design a cost effective nanosensor to detect the quantity of nanoparticles in human body fluids. He is on sabbatical from the International Islamic University, Islamabad where he is serving as an assistant professor of Biotechnology since 2010. During his stay at IIUI, Dr. Ahmad has earned many honors performing as a dedicated teacher, researcher and faculty advisor to the Human Rights Forum (HRF), a designated body under the Iqbal Institute of Research and Dialogue at IIUI. Bashir invested his five years (2005-2010) to earn a degree of Ph.D. in Microbiology. Working in the area of applied microbiology, he screened the extremophilic bacteria from glaciers in the north of Pakistan and characterized the activity of alkaline phosphatase with the collaborative research at the University of Waterloo, Canada. The bacterial isolates he studied, its methodology, their non-purified and purified metabolites all were commercial commodities. This approach provided him vision and skills to become a biotech entrepreneur. Through Biotech Enterprises he established at IIUI, they are actively involved in value addition of research-based materials and their transfer to the community. Currently, this enterprise is running the cause of establishing biogas plants at various domestic settings using the cultured bacteria meant for enhanced production of biomethane at a lower temperature.
