Doctor Kurien and his family are part of the fruit of Saint Thomas’ martyrdom-inducing visit to India to fulfill the Great Commission.
Doctor Kurien graduated from the Post Graduate Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Taramani, Chennai, Tamilnadu, India.
He currently works as associate professor of research at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Oklahoma City. His research interests include the study of free radical-mediated oxidative damage in experimental urolithiasis, systemic lupus erythematosus and Sjögren’s syndrome as well as the role of the nutraceutical curcumin in autoimmune diseases.
Doctor Kurien married Jolly Thomas in 1988. God blessed them with four children, Jobin, Johann, Jasmin, Bianca, a dog named Shadow and a guinea pig called GP. His mother, Annamma Kurian, stays with their family. His father passed on in 2006 to spend eternity with God.
