Research interests have mainly involved the development of improved diagnostic procedures and research tools. My laboratory developed the antibodies used for the immunoassay for CK-MB, the first practical assay for Troponin I and myoglobin, and remains active in seeking better diagnostic procedures and reagents. Current work involves the development of validation of markers of brain injury (stroke, Alzheimer, trauma, etc.) and kidney injury (e.g., transplant rejection).
