Muhammad Subhan Qureshi (Pashto/Urdu: محمد سبحان قريشي; born 1959) is a biologist from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, who is the founder and chief patron of Dairy Science Park.[1] He also works as a dean at the University of Agriculture, Peshawar, Pakistan,[2] and as adjunct professor at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, Australia.[3]

Early life and career[edit]

Qureshi came from a traditional, intellectual family, and belongs to the Bannu District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. After completing his early education in Bannu, Qureshi graduated from the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Lahore in 1982 and then joined the provincial Livestock Department as a veterinary officer in Peshawar. Meanwhile, he joined the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad and completed his MSc and PhD degrees in animal reproduction.

In 1998, in light of his findings under his doctoral thesis on judicial utilization of livestock resources, Qureshi prepared Chief Minister’s Livestock Development Plan on advice of the provincial Chief Minister Sardar Mehtab Abbasi. Later in 2003, Qureshi's plan was also approved by the Chief Minister Akram Khan Durrani.[4] In 2005, Qureshi joined the University of Agriculture, Peshawar as a full professor, and he was raised to the status of Dean of the Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sciences. He contributed as Dairy Expert in a Pak-Australia Dairy project. He also worked as Visiting Professor and then Adjunct Professor at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, Australia. To introduce business incubation concepts, Qureshi organized a series of conferences on Dairy Science Park. Three international workshops on it were held in 2011, 2013, and 2015, respectively, at the University of Agriculture, Peshawar,[5][6] each of which was attended by over 500 participants from academia, business and farming community, and development and government organizations of regional countries.[7][8]
