Scientist C
Email: paresh[at]niab[dot]org[dot]in

Dr. Paresh Sharma received his PhD (2010) in Molecular Parasitology from BITS Pilani, Rajasthan (worked at National Institute of Pathology). He did his post-doctoral work in Malaria Biology at NIAID, National Institute of Health, USA from 2010-2013. He joined the National Institute of Animal Biotechnology in January 2013 as Scientist C. His research interest is in understanding the livestock genome that will allow to understand the genetic basis for disease in domestic animals and could result in healthier production of meat and milk while reducing producers' dependence on antibiotics’’. He is also keen to develop rapid diagnostic kit for various livestock diseases.
