Dr. Asimul Islam is Associate professor at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Basic Sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia, (a Central University), New Delhi. He has significantly contributed in the field of protein folding and stress biology. His work on osmolytes and their mechanism against harsh environmental conditions is published in reputed journals like Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC), Biochemistry, International Journal of Biological Macromolecules (IJBMM) and Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics (JBSD), etc. He has contributed to the development of excluded volume theory that explains how additives can affect protein stability. Dr. Islam has done remarkable research on determination of protein stability in the presence of crowding agents that mimic the environment of the protein in the cell. He is also member of National Academy of Sciences, India (NASI), one of the oldest and premiere scientific bodies of India.
Dr. Asimul Islam had received many prestigious awards in recently, viz. Research Peace Award 2019-20 under the title “International Best Researcher in Protein Folding” by Research under Literal Access Awards (RULA), “the Outstanding Researcher in Molecular and Structural Biology” under the Biomedical Sciences Discipline by Venus International Foundation, NESA Eminent Scientist of The Year Award-2019 by National Environmental Science Academy, and the Fellow Award- 2019 byAgricultural and Environmental Technology Development Society (AETDS).
