Research Project Area: 

The main goals of Nahidul's project are to investigate the characteristics of post-traumatic immune-suppression (PTI) following major surgery and to determine the effect of autologous salvaged blood transfusion in modulating PTI. Following major trauma, PTI increases patients’ susceptibility to acquire nosocomial infection and further complications. However, a little is known about the characterization of PTI, which if known, would be beneficial for the patient to be treated with proper medications. His project also focuses on investigating the effect of autologous salvaged blood transfusion on modulating PTI.
