At Johns Hopkins, MD Anwar Hossain is a lecturer for the MS in Bioinformatics program.

Hossain’s ten years of teaching experience, including for Johns Hopkins, complements more than 15 years in the research and development divisions of government-sponsored research institutes and academia. He received the Japanese Government MEXT scholarship for his PhD and trained as a JSPS Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Tokyo, managing multiple grant-in-aid collaborative research projects in chimeric expression and gene structure/function.

Hossain gained hands-on research experience in chemistry, molecular and cell biology, biotechnology, and quality assurance over a decade and attained enhanced technical and theoretical knowledge primarily in small molecule synthesis and screening, recombinant DNA methodologies, DNA barcode analysis, SNP detection, and biomarker development. He investigated metalloproteins and cellular transition metal-induced global gene expression in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto. He invented a novel antibody specific to vertebrates’ fast skeletal muscle myosin while continuing his project as a research scientist at NRIFS, Yokohama, Japan.

As a passionate biotech research and development scholar, Hossain intensified his efforts in teaching molecular biology and chemistry in the Master of Biotechnology Program, where science merges with business, in the Institute for Management and Innovation at the University of Toronto Mississauga. He simultaneously served as a faculty in the Department of Chemistry and Biology at the Toronto Metropolitan University.

Hossain has taught a variety of courses at Johns Hopkins, including Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Advanced Cell Biology, and Cellular Signal Transduction. He uses flex-blend learning strategies, including Outcome-Based Learning and Investigation-Based Learning approaches in the classroom and online (synchronous and asynchronous) teaching, demonstrating complex cellular and molecular theories in a simple and understandable fashion.

The founder of Infinite International Consultancy–Canada, he has developed expertise in consulting about biomarker, aromatic, steroid, and antimicrobial product development following FDA & EPA regulations and is a professional expert for program coordination and R&D project management.
