Research and Clinical Interests

My research projects involve studying the therapeutic effects of quinacrine and new therapeutic agents in patients afflicted with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, and another project is developing diagnostic tests on extra CNS tissues for prion diseases. I instruct residents, post-sophomore fellows, and rotating medical students in the field of autopsy pathology.

I am actively involved in teaching and curriculum design in the schools of dentistry, medicine and pharmacy.
