Tari Parmely joined the Stowers Institute as a research specialist in the Conaway Laboratory in 2002, and took over the management of the Stowers Tissue Culture Core Laboratory in 2008. Parmely led additional teams starting in 2012, when she was named Head of Tissue Culture, Media Preparation, Histology, and Electron Microscopy. Additional scientific support teams were assigned to her management and Parmely was named Director of the newly formed department of Cellular, Tissue, and Molecular Biology in 2019.
Parmely grew up in Kansas and spent a year as an American Field Scholar in Pukehohe, New Zealand, before receiving a bachelor’s degree of science and education from the School of Education at the University of Kansas. After a two-year stint as a junior immunologist at the Marion Merrell Dow Research Institute in Kansas City, Parmely took a position as research associate at the Wilkinson Laboratory for Cancer Research at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Later, she oversaw the development and production of diagnostic tests as a lead research scientist for Osborne Laboratories before joining the Biomune Company as a research microbiologist in charge of the propagation and evaluation of live-virus vaccines.
