Dr. Jai Parkash joined Hodges University’s School of Health Sciences in summer 2016. As an adjunct faculty member in the Biomedical Sciences program, he shares his expertise in biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, physiology and environmental public health.
Prior to arriving at Hodges, Parkash worked at various universities and institutions, including Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts; Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York; Haverford College in Haverford, Pennsylvania; Florida international University in Miami, Florida; and Keiser University in Fort Myers, Florida.
His areas of specialized expertise include basic and translational research on diabetes and cancer, and intracellular calcium ion, [Ca2+]I, dysregulation as a mediator of inflammation such as cytokine-induced pancreatic beta-cell death in diabetes. In addition, he specializes in calcium ion waves in breast cancer bone metastasis and molecular basis of the metastatic ability of aggressive primary breast cancer and therapeutic approach against metastasis via combinatorial interventions in calcium ions sensing receptor.
