Dr Shubho Das

DVM, MSc (Vet. Path), PhD

Dr. Shubhagata (Shubho) Das has been awarded his Ph.D. from CSU for researching on molecular and structural virology of circoviruses. This was followed by his post-doctoral research supported by the threatened species recovery fund (TSRF) for developing a vaccine against Beak and feather disease virus, a key threatening process for world’s most critically endangered bird species, the Orangeā€bellied Parrot.

Before joining CSU as a HDR student in 2014 with International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (IPRS), Shubho worked as a pathologist and full time academic at Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Bangladesh. Currently, he is working as a lecturer in Veterinary Pathology under SAVS and involved with CSU Veterinary diagnostic laboratory concentrating on anatomic pathology support.

Shubho’s main teaching and research themes include veterinary pathobiology, molecular virology, viral evolution and structural virology. His primary research interest is combining genomics and structural biology approaches for answering viral evolution, discovering novel animal viruses and expressing recombinant protein macromolecules as vaccine candidates.
