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.

Additional Information


I am interested in translating basic science discoveries into clinical practice; particularly in potential use of fine needle aspiration biopsy samples as a material for testing new biomarkers.
