About Md Mahbubul Huq M H Riad
Dr. Riad is a Postdoctoral Associate of the Department of Environmental and Global Health and a member of the Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Kansas State University. Before joining the University of Florida, Dr. Riad was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine at Kansas State University.
Dr. Riad’s doctoral training was in computational modeling, focusing on developing infectious disease models using a network-based approach to assess the risk of spatiotemporal disease transmission. Dr. Riad has developed risk assessment models for infectious diseases such as Ebola, COVID-19, dengue, Rift valley fever, and Japanese encephalitis. Dr. Riad’s current research program studied the development of Physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling and applied the model to food safety. His research has been recognized by the Society of Toxicology (SOT) and received the Andersen-Clewell Trainee Award of the Biological Modeling Specialty Section (BMSS).
Dr. Riad’s current study developed an interactive physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic (iPBPK) Model for Predicting Florfenicol and Florfenicol Amine Residue in Edible Tissues Estimating Withdrawal Intervals in Market-Age Sheep and Goats.
Dr. Riad’s study provides a means to identify the safe withdrawal times before slaughtering to ensure food safety without resorting to animal testing. These goals are accomplished by developing physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling and developing interactive iPBPK web interfaces. Currently, his research is invested in estimating the withdrawal intervals for Florfenicol and Florfenicol Amine in sheep and goats.
