Dr Mukhlesur Rahman is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutical Science and Programme Leader for Pharmaceutical Science at UEL. Dr Rahman completed Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) and Master of Pharmacy from the University of Dhaka with first class in both programmes. He obtained PhD in Natural Product Chemistry from the University of Strathclyde. His research is focused on the bioassay guided isolation and identification of secondary metabolites from natural sources.<br> Dr Rahman is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC), Royal Society of Biology (MRSB), American Society of Pharmacognosy, International Society of Ethnopharmacology, Phytochemical Society of Europe and Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Great Britain.<br> Dr Rahman’s main research area is natural product chemistry with particular focus on anti-infective drug discovery. His research interests includes bioassay directed isolation, purification and identification of antibacterial metabolites from medicinal plants and microbes as well as the synthesis of their analogues to fit them for SAR study. Dr Rahman has been working on numerous medicinal plants from different parts of the world for the isolation and characterization of bio-active metabolites from a variety of structural classes including anti-MRSA compounds and efflux pump inhibitors (EPIs). In order to confirm the structures of the compounds of natural products, Dr Rahman exploits high field NMR (both 1D and 2D) spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. He has published 79 articles in peer review journals and attended several international conferences in UK, USA, Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Bangladesh and India as invited speaker. He supervised two postdoctoral research fellows including one funded by the commonwealth commission. He is currently supervising PhD students which are focused on the characterization of anti-infective secondary metabolites from medicinal plants.</span>

    Overview




    Dr Rahman’s main research area is natural product chemistry with particular focus on anti-infective drug discovery. His research interests includes bioassay directed isolation, purification and identification of antibacterial metabolites from medicinal plants and microbes as well as the synthesis of their analogues to fit them for SAR study. There is an urgent need for new antibiotics in order to deal with the increasing numbers of antibiotic resistant bacteria, in particular methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli and Clostridium difficile. Dr Rahman has been working on numerous medicinal plants from different parts of the world for the isolation and characterization of bio-active metabolites from a variety of structural classes including anti-MRSA compounds and efflux pump inhibitors (EPIs). He has also worked on the isolation and purification of natural products from cultural broth of microbes containing complex mixture of contaminants using a wide range of chromatography. In order to confirm the structures of the compounds of natural products, Dr Rahman exploits high field NMR (both 1D and 2D) spectroscopy and mass spectrometry.
    Currently, Dr Rahman is supervising PhD students in Natural Product Chemistry. He also supervised two postdoctoral research fellows
