Dr. Naser Aziz Anjum was graduated and mastered from Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Bhagalpur (Bihar), obtained Ph.D. (Botany) from Hamdard University (Jamia Hamdard), New Delhi (India), and got post-doctoral research training at reputed International (University of Aveiro, Portugal; A.B.R.C.-Agricultural Biotechnology Research Centre, Academia Sinica, Taiwan) and National (Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India) Universities/Institutes.

Dr. Anjum has made significant contributions to the biology of ‘Plant/Crop-Environment Interaction/Adaptation’ and enlightened the physiology and biochemistry of plants/crops, and their adaptation/tolerance to varied abiotic stress factors and emerging pollutants. Over the years, he has worked out S, N, K and phytohormones mediated modulation of plant ascorbate-glutathione pathway components. He has been the pioneer worker to unveil: nano-graphene mediated oxidative stress, antioxidant metabolism and glutathione-redox system and also glutathione-independent defense system significance in food crop model. Dr. Anjum has also contributed to the field of phytoremediation, and assessed plant/salt marsh macrophyte chemical pollutants-remediation potential and underlying physiological/(bio)chemical mechanisms.

Dr. Anjum received prestigious research awards from International (Portuguese F.C.T.-Foundation for Science and Technology, Portugal; A.B.R.C., Academia Sinica, Taiwan) and National (U.G.C.-University Grants Commission); C.S.I.R.-Council of Scientific and Industrial Research; D.B.T.-Department of Biotechnology) academic/scientific bodies. He has published > 80 peer-reviewed articles with cumulative impact factor of >200 and >3000 citations; edited 14 books and journal special issues; and availed 03 research grants/projects financed by F.C.T. (Portugal), and C.S.I.R., and D.B.T. (New Delhi, India). Dr. Anjum has an impressive h-index of 31 and i-10 index 68 (Google Scholar). Dr. Anjum won several awards including Scientist of the Year Award-2017 by N.E.S.A.-National Environmental Science Academy, New Delhi and Top-25 List Award-2018/Certificate of Excellence (Scientist Category) by EET-CRS, Noida, Uttar Pradesh. He has also been honored with the position of Associate/Assistant/Managing Editor in the panels of reputed multidisciplinary and specialized journals including Plant Growth Regulation, Acta Physiologiae Plantarum, and Brazilian Journal of Botany published by Springer, Dordrecht; International Journal of Plant Biology (PAGE Press, Pavia, Italy) and Frontiers in Marine Science, section – Marine Pollution (Frontiers Media SA, Lausanne, Switzerland).

Presently, Dr. Anjum is working as DBT-Ramalingaswami Re-Entry Fellow (=Scientist-D/Assistant Professor) at Department of Botany, Faculty of Life Sciences, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh (U.P.), India. He can be reached at dnaanjum@gmail.com or anjum@ua.pt.
