Abdullah Tarique is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Queensland, Australia. He received a B.Sc. degree in Biochemistry from University of Dhaka, Bangladesh and M.Sc. degree in Infection and Immunity from Erasmus University, Netherlands and Ph.D. degree on macrophage responses in cystic fibrosis from the University of Queensland, Australia. He developed his expertise in the field of immunology and infectious diseases. During his PhD, he developed an ex vivo model for characterization of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory macrophage subsets with which he identified a fundamental defect of macrophage responses in cystic fibrosis. His research was recognized by Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust (ACFRT) by awarding Ann Maree Bosch fellowship. His current research involves study of molecular mechanisms underlying dysfunctional CFTR and macrophage responses in cystic fibrosis.
