Dr Sania Subhan Qureshi


A highly enthusiastic, dedicated hard worker, and firmly believe in the power of teamwork. My professional carrier started with earning my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree in 2017 from The University of Agriculture Peshawar. Building on that foundation, I pursued an MPhil degree in Veterinary Pathology from the same university in 2019. During my MPhil program, I had the incredible opportunity to delve deep into the world of veterinary pathology. My research centered on the comparison of three prevalent serotypes of Foot-and Mouth Disease Virus (FMDV) in Pakistan: serotype A, O, and Asia-1. This involved an extensive analysis of viral isolates, and I employed various cutting-edge techniques, including ELISA, Real-time PCR, and in-vitro cell culturing. Through this research, I gained invaluable insights into the pathogenicity, molecular characteristics, and immune responses associated with these serotypes.
In addition to my academic pursuits, I also served as a Research Officer in a cell culture laboratory for a remarkable five years. During this time, I successfully completed numerous Annual Technical Research Programs. Some of these projects included comparing the use of fetal bovine serum and horse serum for the production of the BHK-21 cell line, evaluating optimal seeding concentrations for culturing the Baby Hamster Kidney-21 cell line, adapting the Fetal Goat Tongue Cell Line (ZZR-127), and working on the adaptation of FMD field virus isolates (Fetal Goat Tongue Cell line adapted) on the Baby Hamster Kidney-21 cell line. Furthermore, I assisted the Dairy Science Park as Editor of the Proceedings Books of the biennial series of international conferences and industrial exhibitions.

  • Narrator: Gawal e Ka Tarana – Dairy Farmer’s Poem (This poem was authored by Mr. Shah Hussain Afridi, former Secretary of Agriculture, Government of KP, Pakistan and narrated by Dr. Sania Subhan Qureshi, Veterinary Research Institute in Peshawar, beautifully captures the struggles faced by Prof. M Subhan Qureshi. The poem delves into his relentless efforts to analyze and respond to the challenges confronted by livestock farmers and related industries, all within the context of the Dairy Science Park initiative. This poetic expression highlights the dedication of individuals like Prof. M Subhan Qureshi in addressing the multifaceted issues within the agricultural sector. The narrative emphasizes the importance of the Academia-Industry-Government Nexus, employing the Triple Helix Model as a framework for good governance. The objective is clear: to establish a network of entrepreneurship spanning the entire food value chain. By employing this collaborative model, the initiative seeks to promote innovation and economic development, fostering cooperation among academia, industry, and government. The ultimate goal is to create a synergistic relationship that benefits all stakeholders involved in the agricultural landscape.
