Dr. Mujeebur Rahman Khan is a Professor in the Department of Plant Protection, Aligarh Muslim University, India and has served the department as a Chairperson. He is presently the Dean, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, AMU. Prof. Khan obtained a Ph.D. in Botany (Plant Pathology & Nematology) in 1988, and thereafter worked as a Post Doc at North Carolina State University and California Department of Food (1988) and Agriculture, U.S.A. (1989), and also at the Commonwealth Institute of Parasitology, London. He is a Fellow of the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences and has served the Indian Phytopathological Society as a Zonal President on two terms. Prof. Khan has a vast experience of P.G. teaching and research of over three decades in Plant Protection Sciences and has a credit of around 350 research publications and review articles on various aspects of plant pathology/ Nematology. He has authored 6 books on Nematology (including CRC & CABI) and edited 8 books on disease management in agricultural crops. He has delivered lectures/presentations at over 50 national and international conferences (including U.S.A. 2, Abu Dhabi 1 & 1 Singapore), and served as a reviewer for journals, funding agencies, etc. Prof. Khan is member of numerous national and international academic societies, and the recipient of fifteen important academic awards including Outstanding Scientist Award-2019 (Aligarh Muslim University), Prof. B.B. Mundkur Award-2018 (Indian Phytopathological Society), Prof. H.M.
