Research Interests:

My interests are multidisciplinary in that they encompass both research and regulatory affairs. My research interests include the bio effects of ionizing and non-ionizing (including ultrasound) radiation energy as a function of their physical characteristics.

At the same time I have maintained an interest in those areas of regulatory oversight of selected industries under the purview of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA). Of particular consultative interests to me are the USFDA regulations which govern the current good manufacturing practices (i.e. CGMPs) of the industries involved in medical devices, biotechnology, institutional review boards (IRBs) and lasers. In addition to the foregoing over the last several years I have led joint efforts to formulate biotechnology research projects including UCLA, the USFDA, and the private sector. These efforts gave dealt with research projects in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment (currently at the West LA VA Medical Center), the application of Fourier Transform Infra-red (FTIR) spectroscopy to characterization of mammalian cells, chromosomes, neoplastic tissue, and selected polymers. The ultimate conclusion to these efforts is the formation of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) under the auspices of the Federal Technology Transfer Act of 1987.
