Research and Practice Interests


My main research interest concerns metal-based drugs and the use of cell culture models in determination of mechanism of action. We have been studying gold-based drugs used to treat rheumatoid arthritis for a number of years and have identified specific gold containing metabolites in patient fluids. We are now studying the interaction of these metabolites with cultured cells and have recently begun studies aimed at determining whether any of these metabolites can inhibit replication of the AIDS virus.
