Originally from Dehli, India, Parul Suri, MS, worked for Zoetis in Michigan for two-and-a-half years after earning her master’s degree. During that time, she learned about projects that University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Center researchers were conducting. Suri’s research interests matched perfectly with the studies underway at the Gluck Center, so she decided to pursue her PhD in Lexington, Kentucky.

Suri is working under the direction of Daniel Howe, PhD, molecular parasitologist at the Gluck Center. Her research is mainly focused on Sarcocystis neurona, a neural parasite that can cause the neurologic disease equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) in horses.
