My area of expertise is toxicology. Veterinary toxicology is my home in toxicology, but I am also board-certified in general toxicology. 1. The role of the environment in neurotoxicology and neurodegeneration. Currently I am investigating the efficacy of Cobinamide for treatment of hydrogen-sulfide-induced neurotoxicity. This work is funded by an NIH CounterACT grant. 2. Applied diagnostic and clinical toxicology. Currently I am working on an FDA funded research on diagnostic methods development. My current research in this area is development and validation of a tissue-based diagnostic test for aflatoxin B1 in liver and urine. Also I am working on cyanotoxins applied research, diagnostic test methods and impact of microcystin LR on human health and animal health.
