Dr. Khan Muhammad Saad Shoaib

Current address: 301Xuefu road,Jingkou district, Zhenjiang city, Jiangsu, China




To work with a reputed institution, that will provide me a good platform to utilize my expertise & research skills and will help me to grow my career.


  2015 – June 2020

Ph.D. Agriculture and Biotechnology

Zhejiang University, China

Research Interest

Utilization of modern techniques such as, biotechnology, metabolomics, etc. to understand the molecular mechanism in plants under biotic and abiotic stress conditions. Which may help us to develop plants with enhanced attributes.  Hence, the ultimate goal is to serve the local and global farmers by developing cultivars with best quality and yield traits.
