Ferdaus Hossain conducted his Doctoral research on "Immunomodulatory molecules (CCR5, IDO) and signaling pathways of virus-induced exacerbated asthma" through adopting various infectious murine models (Influenza-PR8, Rhinovirus-1B). In this way, he has developed an infectious murine model, and justifying the model validation, in the Dept. of Microbiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Chonbuk National University, Republic of Korea. He has also basic exposures on immunovirology in detail about JEV, HSV, and Dengue virus using different mice models. Currently, as an NIH fellow, he is working on the Coronavirus immunology using mice models, in the Dept. of Pathology & Microbiology, College of Medicine, University of Nebraska, USA. His ongoing target is to the characterization of the Th responses and mechanisms underlying post Coronavirus secondary (Staphylococcus aureus-MRSA) complications in humans.
