Profile IntroductionThe laboratory has several major areas. We are interested in control of development by lipid chemical mediators. In mammals we work on enzyme regulation of epoxyeicosanoids that control pain, hypertension and inflammation. In particular we are working to move a small molecule drug to the clinic regulating these lipid mediators and treating diabetes and pain. We also are looking at the effect of diet on these systems. We also work on the development of high throughput systems for metabolite profiling by mass spectrometry (metabolomics) and on immunoassays (biosensors) to monitor human exposure to environmental contaminants. We currently are using recombinant alpaca nanobodies in biosensor formats.

See laboratory publications on web site for current areas.
Technically we are a diverse laboratory applying a variety of tools in biological chemistry to questions in regulatory biology. We attempt to relate our fundamental work to human and environmental health. The technologies include enzymology, physiology, medicinal chemistry, analytical chemistry and others.
