Never wavering from his commitment to improve and lengthen the lives of the less fortunate in the U.S. and abroad, Pari has volunteered his time and talents in medical settings in North America and South Asia, established a pilot program to enhance healthcare access and outcomes in rural India, and published groundbreaking research in an international medical journal.
Shree Mukilan Pari is an undergraduate researcher on course to enroll in medical school. Although his primary focus is biology, he has varied academic interests and brings a multidisciplinary lens to every aspect of his work.
Pari’s first research engagement, during his junior year of high school, was a research internship in the Ayesha Hospitals anesthesiology department, in India. After a thorough analysis of the system’s practices, he presented a report to local health authorities that included recommendations to purchase newer equipment, educate patients about the benefits of anesthesia, and improve incentives for anesthesiologists to work in rural areas. His work was published in the International Journal of Pharma and Bio Sciences.
The following year, Pari studied the hepatoprotective (liver-protecting) effects of Rhizophora Mucronata (loop-root mangrove) bark extract against liver toxicity in mice. He expects to publish his findings in the coming months.
In his limited spare time, Shree Mukilan Pari enjoys basketball, crossfit, and weight lifting. He’s also an enthusiastic nature photographer specializing in the native birds, mammals, and flowers of the Bay Area.
Pari is a proud supporter of medical research and efforts to increase access to medical care. Among other organizations, he supports the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society, and has volunteered his time at South Asian Heart Center (SAHC) at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, California, where he was the primary nonmedical point of contact for returning patients.
