Nazmul Sarwar's research focuses on the impacts of foods on health with a particular interest in the investigation of the link of dietary factors and related biomarkers with the risk of cardio-metabolic diseases. He has a special interest in investigating the association between the degree of food processing and the risk of diseases and evaluating causality by using genetic predictors (i.e, Mendelian randomization). Other major research interests of him are dietary bioactive compounds and the evaluation of their functionality; and processing, preservation, and development of novel functional food products.
Nazmul Sarwar graduated from the University of Cambridge, UK with an MPhil as a Commonwealth Scholar. Prior to this, he completed his Bachelor's studies in food science and technology and Master's studies in food processing and engineering from the Faculty of Food Science and Technology, Chattogram Veterinary and Animal Sciences University. He received the prestigious Prime Minister Gold Medal 2015, Chancellor Gold Medal 2015 & 2017, and Dean's Award for his academic excellence. He has frequently engaged with the media to promote knowledge in the area of food science and nutrition.
