Islam worked as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow (2007–2009) at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany with Andreas von Tiedemann in the Division of Plant Pathology and Plant Protection. His research interests are concentrated in understanding the underlying molecular mechanism of asexual sporulation in peronosporomycetes and signal transduction pathways of chemotaxis and differentiation of zoospores. He has made outstanding leadership in addressing rapid wheat blast outbreak in Bangladesh in 2016. Since wheat blast first emerged in Bangladesh, the genetic identity and origin of wheat blast fungus was detected by an international collaborative team, Prof. Tofazzal Islam from Bangladesh led this team . His research findings on molecular biological studies on wheat blast fungus published in BMC Biology 2016 and mitigation of the fearsome wheat blast disease by development of blast resistant wheat varieties are ongoing projects. In addition, he has been collaborating with Prof. Yusuke Yamauchi and Dr. Shahriar Hossain of Wollongong University in Australia to utilize nanotechnology for production of high valued products from jute fiber, development of nanopesticide and preparation of agriculturally and environmentally valuable mesoporous nanomaterials. Their fruitful collaboration already produced an outstanding publications in Nature Communication 2017. Prof. Islam is the Chief Editor of a Springer book series Bacillus and Agrobiotechnology. He worked on the development of a convenient molecular diagnostic tool for diagnosing anthracnose diseases in asymptomatic strawberry plants with Prof. Daniel Panaccione at West Virginia University as a Fulbright Scholar.

He obtained B Sc Ag (Hon) and M Sc (Ag) in agricultural chemistry from Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU). He secured First Position in the First Class in both the cases in order of merit. He did M Sc in ecological chemistry (1999) and PhD in applied bioscience (2002) from Hokkaido University, Japan.
Tofazzal Islam married Hasna Hena Begum in 1995. She is currently serving as the Senior Specialist (Soil and Environment) of the Waste Concern, Bangladesh. They have one son – Tahsin Islam Sakif who was born on July 2, 1997. Hasna Hena did her Ph.D. in plant physiology at Hokkaido University in 2003.
Tofazzal Islam has been working on ecological chemistry of Peronosporomycete phytopathogens and applied phytochemistry since 1997. His MS and PhD theses were involved in understanding cell biology of flagellar motility, taxis, viability and differentiation of zoospores of the oomycete phytopathogens when interacting with host and nonhost plant secondary metabolites. He elucidated mechanisms of damping-off disease control in spinach and sugar beet by Lysobacter sp. SB-K88. He has awarded a fellowship (2003–2005) from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) to work on ‘signaling systems between root and rhizoplane microorganisms including oomycetes and their agricultural usage’ at the said laboratory of Hokkaido University.
Md. Tofazzal Islam (born December 20, 1966) is an ecological chemist, educator, and author from Bangladesh. He is now a professor and founder Director of Institute of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (IBGE) of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University (BSMRAU), Gazipur. He joined Bangladesh Open University (BOU) as a lecturer in 1994 and became an assistant, associate and full professor in 1997, 2004 and 2010, respectively. He joined BSMRAU on July 1, 2010 as a professor and head of the Department of Biotechnology.
Islam was born in 1966 in Shashai village of Brahmanbaria District in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). His father, Bazlur Rahman, is a farmer and mother, Khaleda Khanom is a house wife. He witnessed the atrocities of Pakistani armies during liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971, which delayed starting of his primary education. He started his primary education from Grade 2 at a newly established a primary school at Shashai. As the elder son, during his primary and secondary education, he participated with his parents for maintaining the family from production of crops. He was a meritorious student in his schools and never stood second from Grade 2-10. He passed SSC and HSC from Satbarga High School and Brahmanbaria Government College, respectively securing First Division in both cases.
