Research Summary

Our primary area of research focuses on gene/environment interactions, including genetic variability in susceptibility to exposures of organophosphorus insecticides used in agriculture and triaryl phosphates used as anti-wear agents in aircraft engines, which can enter the aircraft when engine seals wear or fail. Another component of our research program includes the development of portable surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-based biosensors that are used for the study of intermolecular interactions and for environmental monitoring. Diseases of interest include cardiovascular and neurological.
