I have 28 years of experience, and specialize in the field of biochemistry with specific knowledge in the areas of structural biology, drug discovery and bacterial toxins. I have published on such topics as drug discovery to prevent MRSA, structure and function of a bacterial adhesin in plaque bacteri and mechanism of action of vasopressin antagonists. For most of my career I was engaged in basic research. In recent years my focus has shifted to applied science in the area of drug discovery and design. I want to make a difference. This has been very gratifying for me.
