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
