I have more than 45 years of experience in Internal Medicine. Scientific highlights from my clinical research include developing orphan drugs for sickle cell disease and thalassemia, documenting that hemoglobin A1c could be used as a measure of longer term “control” in diabetes mellitus, the observation that patient self monitored glucose values along with HBA1c values could be used as two independent means of quantifying “control,” documentation that improved glucose levels improve outcome of pregnancy in women with diabetes and reverse several pathologies associated with the disease, discovery of an assay that could be used to document levels of alcohol consumption over time, and the first use of atomic force microscopy to visualize cells. I also have experience with telemedicine, and hold 15 U.S. patents, have sponsored 7 INDs to the FDA.
