RESEARCH

Ultra-rapid vitrification of oocytes and cryopreservation Current

Evaluating effect of ANP on steroidgenesis in human granulose-luteal cell culture Current

Developed ANP radioimmunoassay. Detected immunoactive ANP production by cultures trophoblasts. Measures changes in steroidgenesis and hCG secretion induced by epidermal growth factor in cultured trophoblasts. 1986-1987

Developed assay to simultaneously measure progesterone and estrogen cytoplasm receptor proteins. Developed software to analyze dual channel scintillation counting. Measured cyclic changes in neoplastic and control breast tissue steroid receptors. 1984-1985

Measured serum, urine, and amniotic fluid level of endogenous digoxin-like Substance in normal and hypersensitive pregnant women. 1983-1985

Correlated breast cancer steroid receptor protein levels with clinical response to endocrine therapy. 1980

Determined survival of closed, isolated canine cardiopulmonary systems. Measured CABC vein graft accommodation. 1978-1980
