American Board of Clinical Chemistry

I am a clinical chemist who specializes in translating new technologies into the clinical laboratory. I oversee testing in the Protein Immunology section of the Clinical Chemistry Laboratory and provide clinical consultation regarding diagnostic tests and the interpretation of results. My research focuses on improving the measurement of proteins and antibodies using techniques such as mass spectrometry, surface plasmon resonance, and microfluidic immunoassays. Through collaborations with clinicians and in vitro diagnostic manufacturers, my translational research aims to keep Memorial Sloan Kettering at the forefront of diagnostic testing so we can provide the best possible care for our patients.
