Narasimham L. Parinandi is currently an Associate Professor of internal medicine and pharmacology at the Ohio State University College of Medicine, Columbus, OH, USA. Pari received his Ph.D. degree in biology and toxicology from the University of Toledo, Toledo, OH, USA, in 1986 under the tutelage of Professor Woon Jyung, an authority on zinc metabolism in plants. During doctoral training, Pari specialized in bioinorganic chemistry and interaction of trace metals with membrane lipids in brain. Pari had undergone postdoctoral training at the Hormel Institute (Mecca of Lipid Research), University of Minnesota, Austin, MN, USA, in membrane lipid biochemistry and lipid oxidation chemistry from 1986 to 1990 under the mentorship of Professor Harald Schmid, a world-renowned expert on plasmalogen and anandamide chemistry. Following that, he was an Editor of toxicology and biochemistry and Information Scientist at the CAS of the American Chemical Society in Columbus, OH, USA. Pari was a Junior Faculty Member at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA, where he worked on oxidant lipid signaling at the Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine during 1998–2002 under the mentorships of Professor Skip Garcia and Professor V. Natarajan, who are celebrities in vascular endothelial biology and signaling. In 2002, Pari joined the Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine, OSU College of Medicine, as an Assistant Professor and has established the Lipid Signaling, Lipidomics, and Vasculotoxicity Program at the Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute, Ohio State University. Pari's research focus is on phospholipid signalases in lung vasculature, lipidomics of adiposity, and bioactive oxidant lipidomics in vasculotoxicity. Pari has published over 70 papers in peer-reviewed journals. Pari has been one of the editors of the Journal of Glycomics and Lipidomics.
