Research Interests: Our principle areas of research are analytical, clinical and forensic toxicology. In our basic research we develop new methods to detect drugs and their metabolites in biological fluids and tissues. These have significant applications in developing new drug delivery systems and determination of drug pharmacokinetic parameters.
