    Time Table


Dr. Shamsul Hayat is Professor, in the Department of Botany, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India. He received his Ph.D. degree in Botany from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India. Before joining the Department as faculty, he has worked as Research Associate and Young Scientist in the same Department. He has also worked as Associate Professor in King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as a BOYSCAST Fellow at the National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences, Tsukuba, Japan and through INSA-Bilateral exchange program at Faculty of Biology and Chemistry, Institute of Biology, Department of Plant Biochemistry and Toxicology, University of Bialystok, Poland. The major area of research includes plant hormone, nanoscience and abiotic stress in plants. It has been reported from his group that phytohormone such as brassinosteroids and salicylic acid plays an important role in increasing the photosynthetic efficiency of the plant and regulate the antioxidant system even under abiotic stress. He is also studying protein profiling in hormone-treated plants under abiotic stress. Dr. Hayat has been awarded Prof. Hira Lal Chakravorty Award by Indian Science Congress Association, Kolkata, India, Associate of National Academy of Agricultural Sciences, New Delhi, India, BOYSCAST fellow by Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, New Delhi, and young scientist by Association of the Advancement of Science, Aligarh, India. Dr. P.S. Khankhoje gold medal has also been awarded to him by Dr. Punjab Rao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola. He has been the Principal Investigator of the various projects sanctioned by different agencies and guided seven students for the award of the Ph.D. degree and two students for the award of M.Phil degree besides a number of M.Sc. students. Dr. Hayat has published more than one hundred sixty research papers in the leading journal of the world such as Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, Environmental & Experimental Botany, Plant Physiology & Biochemistry, Environmental Pollution, Nitric Oxide, Protoplasma, Plant Signalling & Behaviour, Photosynthetica, Acta Physiologiae Plantarum with high impact factor and also published twelve books by Kluwer Academic, Springer, Wiley-VCH, Science Publisher and Narosa Publishing House. Besides this twenty-five book chapters have also been published. Dr. Hayat has presented his work at several national and international conferences in Japan, Brazil, Spain, China, Poland, and Saudia Arabia. He is a regular reviewer and on the panel of editorial boards of National and International journals, Dr. Hayat is also a member of important National and International scientific societies. Recently he has been appointed as an Indian representative in the Asia Association of Plant Scientist.
