Professor

Specialty/Research Focus

Cell growth, differentiation and development

 
Professional Summary:

My research interests are centered in hematology, the study of blood cells. In particular, current research is focused on the study of comparative hematology of the erythrocyte (red blood cell). This entails an analysis of how the erythrocyte is adapted or modified for its existence in the rare invertebrates in which the erythrocyte is first found and thereafter throughout the vertebrate spectrum (fish, amphibians, and reptiles’ ect.). Thus this work can be envisioned as a study of a conceptual odyssey that the red blood cell undertakes through the rare invertebrates, thereupon throughout the classes of poikilothermic (cold blooded) vertebrates onward to the first homoeothermic (warm blooded) vertebrates (birds) and thereupon to mammals including man.
Current studies specifically include the analysis of available data and information regarding the light and electron microscopy of this cell, the quantitative representation of red cells in the circulating blood, the size, shape and form of the red cell, sites of production of elytroid precursors, embryologic aspects of erythropoiesis, primitive and definitive generations of erythrocytes, and study of factors that impact on the morphology, number, life span ect. of red cells. These studies ultimately lead one to a better understanding of the erythrocyte of man and its activities in health and disease.
