Professional Interests

Developed new approaches for gene based therapies of both inherited and acquired diseases.  My current focus is on inherited liver diseases.  Validation of gene therapy approaches is performed routinely on three animal models: the Gunn Rat (model for Crigler-Najjar syndrome type 1), Mps VII mice (model for Sly syndrome) and Agxt-/-mice (model for primary hyperoxaluria-1).  In addition, I routinely apply my experience in generating gene transfer vectors for research on pathophysiological mechanisms, as well as development of novel therapies.  I work specifically on vectors base on recombinant adenoviruses, lentiviruses and SV40 viruses.  In addition, I have been involved in developing non-viral gene transfer techniques.

Collexis Research Profiles
Einstein Research Profiles (ERP) is one of the innovative technologies to create collaborative bridges within and across the entire bench-to-bedside-to-population spectrum of research. The ERP website has been developed in partnership with Collexis to give investigators easy access to PubMed publications, coauthor networks, information about NIH grants, and research networks.
