People of Bangladesh residing worldwide bring money, fame and even contributes to the world economy and development through their innovation and discovery. Such a name of a Bangladeshi Bengali is expatriate scientist, Mr. Jamal Uddin (Bengali: ড. জামালউদ্দিন).
This invention is very crucial for the world, especially for Bangladesh. As we know, as per the data of Bangladesh Govt, 55.26% people of Bangladesh have electricity and most importantly, 42.49% people of rural areas in Bangladesh have electricity.* This shows that the huge deficit of electricity in Bangladesh. Most importantly, lack of electricity creates space for kerosene. Maximum people of the off-grid areas have to rely on using kerosene lamp at night due to unavailability of on-grid electricity.
One statistics shows that the typical expenditure on kerosene is around 1 to 2% of the monthly incomes of Bangladeshi households. With 94% of this kerosene being consumed for lighting, the resulting expenditure on kerosene for lighting is approximately USD 0.36 billion.** This is huge indeed, so as to say!
The work of Mr. Jamal Uddin is also huge! He invented the world most efficient solar cell which has 43.4% of the solar cell renewable energy production capacity. He made new world record in this case by using meta physics, Kasmol software and PC One-D. His invention will create more opportunities for solar technology even impact on the lives of the people of the third world country and developed country.
Dr. Jamal has completed his Honour’s and Masters degree in chemistry from the University of Dhaka. He obtained his PhD degree from the University of Osaka, Japan.
He is currently working as an ‘Associate Professor’ at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland of United States of America. And he is the researcher in Coppin State’s Center for Nano-technology. He is the resident of Hajiganj of Chandpur district. He is the son of late Abdul Jalil and Begum Fazilatunnesa.
He received Wilson H. Elkins Professorship, second year in a row. He is the recipient of the 2014 Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award. Founder and director of Coppin State’s Center for Nano-technology, Dr. Jamal Uddin plans to use the funds to continue supporting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) research, especially solar research. This is redundant to say that the Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award is the highest honor that the Board of Regents’ bestows to recognize exemplary faculty achievement.

According to the Global Gender gap report 2015, Bangladesh ranks 64th out of 145 countries with a score of 0.704 (0.00 = inequality, 1.00=Equality)* . This is the statistics which say lot about the gender situation of a country like Bangladesh. But a girl of this country still can contribute if they get proper opportunities and support. Let it be in the field of science and technology or any other sectors. Though this county has very few female scientists, some of them are doing really a brilliant job in the field of science and technology.
Ayesha Arefin Tumpa (Bengali: আয়েশা আরেফিন টুম্পা), is the name of such Bangladeshi girl who proved this again with her invention, artificial human lungs. She has invented this using Nano-technology as a part of combined team. According to her, she is grateful to the researchers of different countries particularly Momo Vuyisich of Montenegro working in Los Alamos of United States of America.
An American researcher, Chris Detter of Alamos National Laboratory, had discovered promising geneticist Tumpa in one of his trip to Bangladesh for research related work in 2011. She got the opportunity of studying in Los Alamos National Laboratory for higher studies and research with the exclusive collaboration by Detter and his colleague, Lance Green. She had been doing her PHD in University of New Mexico on nano-science. At the same time, she had been continuing her research in Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Tumpa began her career in the bio-security section at Los Alamos National laboratory. Then, a renowned Indian researcher and toxicologist, Rashi Iyer had appointed Tumpa in the lab for optogenix related research work. This is noteworthy that optogenix is the study of manipulating genetics and engineering proteins to control neuron activity in living tissue for prosthetic limb and artificial tissue development.
As we know, Nanoparticles is used in different products starting from sunscreens to solar panels, are proliferating so quickly that safety testing for potential health hazards can hardly keep-up. Tumpa and other member of Iyer’s team are developing methods to improve testing of toxins and diseases and support bioethics, including replacing prevalent animal-testing methods with trials in artificial organs.
The team is creating an artificial human lung to reveal the cellular mechanisms in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,the third most common cause of death in America and support development of therapeutics. Arefin also researches neurological diseases and strokes.
In the same time, Tumpa engaged in doing research on various neurological diseases and blood-dripping in brain. In her education life in Bangladesh, She had attended in Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), where she received her undergraduate degree in Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology. Anyone can judge her more by one of her saying, as it says, “My goal is not just to do cool things; my goal is to do something helpful for other people”

Dr. Rasel Das, an idol of Bangladesh, awarded with ‘Elsevier Atlas Award’ for his research on purifying the sea water
Dr. Rasel Das (Bengali: রাসেল দাস), is an idol of Bangladesh, awarded along with his team mates for his research work on purifying the sea water. He was awarded with ‘Elsevier Atlas Award 2015’ in 2015. He has done his research on Carbon nanotube membranes for water Purification as part of completing his PHD degree.
This award is awarded in each year in every trades of science (including Physics, Chemistry, Health) by selecting the best research paper from research papers published in journals worldwide.
According to elsevier.com, ‘With over 2,500 journals publishing articles from across science, technology and health, our mission is to share some of the stories that matter. Each month Atlas showcases research that could significantly impact people’s lives around the world or has already done so. We hope that bringing wider attention to this research will go some way to ensuring its successful implementation.
With so many worthy articles published the tough job of selecting a single article to be awarded “The Atlas” each month comes down to an Advisory Board. The winning research is presented alongside interviews, expert opinions, multimedia and much more on the Atlas website’.
According to one of the press releases of elsevier.com, ‘About 400 million people are using desalinated water and it has been projected that 14 % of the global population will be forced to use sea water by 2025. Desalination plants already provide much of the water used by people in many parts of the world, especially in Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Australia. Climate change is only increasing the demand for desalinated water as greater evaporation and rising seas further limit freshwater supplies for a growing world population. But current methods to desalinate water come at a very high cost in terms of energy, which means more greenhouse gases and more global warming. Existing desalination plants rely on reverse osmosis, vacuum distillation, or a combination of the two. But those methods are energy intensive and costly. Carbon nanotubes are tiny hexagonal tubes, made by rolling sheets of graphene, said Rasel Das, first author of the paper. They require little energy and can be designed to specifically reject or remove not only salt, but also common pollutants’.
Mr. Das was born on 17th June, 1987. He had completed his graduation in 2009 and Post-graduation in 2011 from Chittagong Science and Technology University with first class grading in Bio-technology. Later he had joined in Chittagong Science and Technology University as Lecturer in Biotechnology department in 2012. He admitted later in PHD in Nanotechnology and Catalysis Research Center, University of Malaya, 50603 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2012 where he contributes to the research along with his team-mates Md. Eaqub Ali, Sharifah Bee Abd Hamid, Seeram Ramakrishna, Zaira Zaman Chowdhury.

Dr. Shuvo Roy, a Bangladeshi born American, led a team of 40 researchers in the United states which invents the world’s first implantable artificial kidney
As we learn from Wikipedia, Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease (CRD), is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. Chronic kidney disease globally resulted in 735,000 deaths in 2010 up from 400,000 deaths in 1990.
This is the information we have in our hand for chronic kidney disease. The above statistics along with the following one in terms of the growing number of transplants is not pleasing one to read-out though.
Statistics by country, year and donor type
|Country||Year||Cadaveric donor||Living donor||Total transplants|
In this circumstance, the following pieces of information are worth referring as an article written by Gary Becker and Julio Elias on “Introducing Incentives in the market for Live and Cadaveric Organ Donations” estimated the price tag for human kidneys ($15,000); not at all a cheap figure within the reach of majority people globally.
In this situation world-wide, Dr. Shuvo Roy (Bengali: শুভ রায়), PhD, a bio engineer on the faculty of the UCSF School of Pharmacy and the technical director of The artificial kidney project, led a team of 40 researchers in nine laboratories in the United states which invents the world’s first implantable artificial kidney. After successful transplantation, this can be a potential alternative to dialysis and transplants for patients with end-stage kidney failure.
The device has shown such promise that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration selected it as one of three projects for a special fast-track approval process. Researchers hope it will be ready for a human trial in 2017.This is expected that an artificial kidney could be manufactured for $30,000 or less. Testing in animals could begin by about 2016, but it would probably be 2020 or later before the device, if proved effective, could be one to use in regular transplantation.
The artificial kidney device will cost about $20 million to develop and take it through its first clinical trial, though the team has grants and gifts of about $7 million.
The implantable device will mimic the filtration functions of a kidney as well as its ability to maintain water and salt balances, produce Vitamin D and regulate blood pressure and pH. The bio-compatible device will attach to the circulatory system and remove toxins to the bladder as waste. The device will allow patients to live untethered from dialysis machines and eat and drink more normally. Most interestingly, the device can be powered by the human body’s circulatory system.
The man behind all of these, Mr. Shuvo, was born on 10th November 1969 at Rosangiri (Bengali: রোসাংগিরি) in Fotikchori sub-district (Bengali: ফটিকছড়ি উপজেলা) in Chittagong district (Bengali: চট্টগ্রাম) of Bangladesh though some Indian media mistaken and later realized him as the citizen of India.
Mr. Shuvo is the son of Dr Ashok Nath Roy (Bengali: অশোক নাথ রায়) and Mrs. Ratna Roy (Bengali: রত্না রায়). His father is a man from Rosangiri in Fotikchori sub-district and his mother Mrs. Ratna Roy is from Alkoron of Chittagong metropolitan city. His grandfather, Mr. Nogen Dey, was a professor of English in Sir Kanungopara Ashutosh college of Boyalkhali. He has one younger brother, Joy roy, a vascular surgeon and sister Choity roy, a anesthetic; both of them are residing in USA. His wife, Monica mathuse (Bengali: মনিকা ম্যাথুস) is an US citizen.
In his early life, Mr. Shuvo was admitted to a nursery school of Siddeshari at the age of just 5 years. But they had to go to Uganda for his father’s profession as doctor in 1974. He had completed his secondary certification from Jinja senior secondary school in Uganda. He had gone to USA and completed his under graduation from Mount union college of Oliyons. He had achieved lots of awards and honor in his life. Here is a growing list of his awards, honors, career, awarded grants, and publications thanks to www.ucsf.edu .
