Hany is an Associate Professor of Veterinary Parasitology at The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, University of Nottingham. He earned his PhD in Molecular and Evolutionary Parasitology from Michigan State University, where he studied the genetic population structure of the protozoan Sarcocystis neurona-the agent of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis in the Americas. In 2005, he was awarded the National Center for Infectious Diseases, Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Postdoctoral Fellowship. He is the author of more than 230 research and professional articles on parasite pathobiology and control. Hany is the author of one US patent and two textbooks. Also, he is a diplomate of the European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC), a member of The European Scientific Counsel for Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP UK & Ireland), a Fellow of the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH), and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

Hany is also a veterinarian by training; he obtained a first class degree with distinction in Veterinary Sciences and MSc in Veterinary Parasitology from Cairo University. His research focuses on host-parasite interaction and anti-parasitic drug discovery.
John completed his PhD on fly population dynamics in 1992 at the Liverpool school of Tropical Medicine where he worked for 28 years, completing numerous projects in Africa, before moving to the school of Veterinary Science in 2008. Research interests are the biology and control of parasitic arthropods - principally flies, ticks and mites - as agents of skin infestations and vectors of disease and John is the author of some 60 publications, he has more recent interests in parasitic lungworms of companion animals, zoonotic helminths of wildlife and in forensic entomology, a pathology-related veterinary specialism unique to the Liverpool School of Veterinary Science.
