Research Interests

My laboratory, the ES Cell and Transgenics Laboratory at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, creates genetically modified mouse models for studies of human diseases and is open to the scientific communities in the United States as well as around the globe. Numerous transgenic, knockout and knockin mouse models were generated when I directed similar facilities at The Wistar Institute and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for over ten years.

We are pleased to announce a new program: Master of Science in Histopathology. In response to increased demand for highly competent technicians in translational research, we have developed this unique, hands-on program to prepare students to conduct biomedical research, including basic molecular and cell biology techniques, as well as the processing and analysis of primary tissue, in translational research.
